Hot Ham and Stilton Waffle Sandwich

who says a sandwich has to be served on bread? Several months ago, I created a Chicken and Waffle sandwich that melted the hearts of many. As the cooler weather is upon us, I decided to twist it up again and create another great waffle sandwich surprise. This sandwich is a great combination of the sweet and savory. And, it is super easy to make. More on Hot Ham and Stilton Waffle Sandwich »

Balsamic Beef Tenderloin

rich and full of flavor I recently served this at a holiday dinner and watched grown adults scrape the platter on which it was passed. They had had plenty, but they didn’t want to leave one morsel behind. Make leftover beef into a sandwich for lunch the next day. Eat it open-face and cold with a slice of mild cheese, or hot on grilled crusty bread with horseradish sauces. Pair this recipe with Asparagus and Garlic Mashed Potatoes.

Greek Grilled Cheese

new twist on your favorite grilled cheese sandwich I cannot think of a single person who doesn’t love grilled cheese. Of course, for most people, the grilled cheese sandwich is one of our first favorites as a kid. Just because we dipped it into our tomato soup, however, does not mean the grilled cheese sandwich is childish or pedestrian. To the contrary, my friends. As you will taste, a healthy smear of mint pesto on a crusty baguette will have you enjoying refinement in a childlike way. Enjoy two of these grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch, or cut them in half for the perfect hot appetizer. More on Greek Grilled Cheese »
