There’s no cooking involved in this easy lunch. I actually made it Monday¬† morning, which I had off from work, but Dave did not. When this happens, we try to meet up for lunch. I took the opportunity to do something fun and take advantage of being home while it was relatively light and photo-friendly.

Making a stepped-up sandwich for work depends on one thing: you having the bread. The rest of it is stuff that you probably have from other ventures. You can play with what meat you use if you don’t have hard salami (one of my favorite pizza toppings, so it’s in the fridge frequently). I used provolone here, but Swiss would be great too, or a maybe a cheddar depending on the meat you use.

Here’s what you need:

  • Two hoagie buns, or in my case, most of a baguette left over from other ventures
  • Sliced Genoa or similar salami – I prefer a pepper-crusted option myself
  • Sliced Provolone (or any of the above listed substitutions)
  • Thinly sliced tomato
  • Salad greens of some kind – I had red lettuce on hand
  • About 1/4 cup thinly sliced fennel
  • Giardiniera to taste
  • Salt, pepper, oil and red wine vinegar

Not a lot to explain here! Slice your bread of choice and pile on the meat, cheese, lettuce, fennel and tomato.

Drizzle with oil and vinegar, then salt and pepper liberally.

Pile on the giardiniera to finish it off. :)

Yesterday I posted about two fun non-recipe recipes for Thanksgiving leftovers. We really enjoyed both of them, but if you thought that granola took care of all of our cranberry sauce, well, you’ve got another think coming. I wanted to switch things up a little for lunch on Sunday. We’ve eaten almost all of the […]

Melty Apple, Ham & Swiss Panini

Good morning from the first day of winter in Portland. Somehow, school is canceled. There isn’t a single flake of snow on the ground. I’m a little grumpy about not getting the snow I was promised. I was looking forward to busting out my now one-year-aged eggnog. It seems far less appropriate without snow. But […]

Chicago-Style Hot Dogs

Have I mentioned that we are from the midwest? [Of course I have.] We are loudly, proudly from the good ol’ heart of the country. For me there is absolutely nothing like getting to the edge of town and finding a stretch of wide open plains, as far as you can see. I like doug […]
