Hello, and welcome to Will It Casserole?, the column where I take your delicious concepts and re-imagine them as delicious casserole creations. Today we're taking one of my favourite sandwiches and transforming into a cheesy, ham-studded, layered piece of edible art.
Growing up, food writer Priya Krishna ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich at every school lunch for eleven years, and in that time she (and her mother) refined the recipe to its ideal - such an ideal that she still eats them. Krishna has five tips for the perfect PB&J.
Though I'm fully aware that most of you have never seen or even heard of a "leftover sandwich", I am in the habit of ordering foot-long subs, and this habit often leaves me with an extra 15cm of sandwich. This is not a tragedy, but once the bread gets soggy, I am no longer willing to put it in my mouth. The sandwich contents are still good though, and there are many ways to eat them.
I am not a huge fan of athlete-designed or endorsed foods and diets, mainly because I am not an athlete, but I also hate the joyless, clinical approach so many of these "diets" take. (In fact, when Tom Brady released his absurd, overpriced "nutritional manual" last year, I was incensed.) But the NBA has a meal plan pretty much everyone can get behind: The humbly delicious peanut butter and jam.
I love berries as much as the next person, but tomatoes are the real reason for the sunny season. These jewels of the vine have so much to give, and sometimes I get overwhelmed by all the potential deliciousness. To help get the most out of the season, here are some of the best ways to eat this delicious, sweet, and tangy fruit.
Growing up in Mississippi, I ate a lot of pimento cheese, mainly on crackers or in sandwiches with white bread. If these were the only two ways I ever consumed this wondrous spread, I would be happy, but pimento cheese can be so much more. Below you will find a multitude of tasty uses for "the caviar of the South."
Every country has their own unique take of the sandwich. While most are boringly pedestrian, there are a handful that stand out as truly inspired (not to mention bloody delicious.) This infographic breaks sown the top 14 sandwich interpretations from around the world -- from the Philly cheesesteak to the chip butty. (And yes, Vegemite sammies made the cut!)
In my mind, tomato soup exists mainly as a condiment for grilled cheese sandwiches, and I like to maximise sandwich dip-ability. Usually I cut mine into strips, but these grilled cheese roll ups from Damn Delicious are an even better option.
