I'm not kidding, the second the weather turns bad, I turn to warm comfort foods and Christmas carols. I feel like such a kid right now. ;-) I was banging away on the piano this morning and attempting to belt out Christmas carols with my hoarse, bronchitis-infected vocal chords. Sounds like I've been smoking all my life... My brother tells me he can't take me seriously because I sound so ridiculous. Not quite sure what that means but.... :-)
I'm doing a repeat today of yesterday's lunch -- a grilled sharp cheddar and turkey sandwich on sourdough. I turn to my cheese sandwiches when it rains. To give it a grown-up element, I'm trying to add other things besides just cheese these days. One of my favorite hot sandwiches lately is an open-faced mozarella, turkey, pesto, and tomato with provolone melted on top under the broiler. It is fantastic on Pugliese. (If you are going to use the broiler to heat your sandwich, toast the bread first; otherwise, it can end up a bit cold and soggy in the middle.) Another excellent choice is a grilled bacon, tomato and Dubliner.
What are your favorite hot sandwiches for a rainy day??
