Hot and Crusty: What more could you ask for?

| January 12, 2007 | 0 Comments

I love my Le Creuset grill (actually, it’s a griddle…I know, but they essentially perform the same function, right?).

So far, it’s griddled asparagus for me (which I ate all of … alone) and made a TON of sandwiches. Loving the sandwiches (with the grill press, of course).

This is one of my favorites so far -the Italian Roast Beef. No recipe. No cookbooks. No internet searches. This one was completely a what-I-have-in-the-house. And it was totally something that will be repeated. Often.

Seriously. I may have been moaning while eating it without knowing.

(Stop laughing! It’s true. And I have heard enough chuckles about it in this lifetime. My parents still laugh about my moaning while eating things I really enjoy like tacos, nachos, and my stepfathers special hot wings.)

Here’s how you can indulge in it too:

Italian Roast Beef Sandwich
serves 1

2 slices crusty bread
2 slices lean roast beef
fresh mozzarella
4 slices sundried tomato, cut into strips
1 clove garlic, minced
olive oil

Preheat your grill/griddle and press (or if you don’t have one, a George Foreman grill works too).

Take one of the slices of bread. Layer the roast beef, mozzarella (enough 1/8 inch slices to cover), sundried tomatoes, and garlic. Drizzle the other slice of bread of olive oil and place olive oil side down on top of the sandwich.

Place the sandwich between the grill and press and cook on medium until browned on both sides. Eat warm and enjoy.
