Favorite Ingredients Friday - Sandwich Edition

We love sandwiches around here. Jim makes a fantastic one. It's called an Italian Dagwood. I'll see if I can get him to share with us. My favorite is one I haven't had in a while. It's only possible when tomatoes are fresh. Grocery store tomatoes don't work for this.

Tomato & Mozzarella Sandwich

1. French bread
2. fresh vine-ripe tomatoes
3. fresh mozzarella
4. balsamic vinegar
5. olive oil
6. dijon mustard (optional)
7. fresh basil

The best French bread is in New Orleans. It's crispy on outside and soft on the inside. Since I'm no longer in New Orleans, I use standard grocery store French bread. Slice your tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. it must be fresh mozzarella. You know the kind. It's sold in a ball sitting in liquid. The liquid is really just water and whatever oozes from the cheese. It's yummy.

Layer the tomatoes and cheese on the bread. Now, this is where it can vary. It's usually based on my mood or supplies. You can sprinkle the tomato and cheese with some balsamic vinegar and olive oil, or you can mix the vinegar and oil with a little dijon to make a dressing. The mustard acts as an emulsifier. If you have fresh basil handy, it's really good on this as well.

This is basically a Caprese salad on French bread. It's awesome.

My second favorite sandwich is even easier. It's four ingredients. I'm sure you can figure out how to assemble.

1. fresh vine-ripe tomatoes
2. white bread
3. Hellman's mayonaisse
4. salt
5. Assemble, eat, and repeat!

To give credit where credit is due, my Italian Dagwood comes from Martin's Supermarket, our local grocery chain. I asked them what was in it, and they told me!

Both of these sandwiches sound fantastic! We have an Italian deli very close to us that makes THE BEST Italian sub rolls. I'll proabably try your sandwiches with those rolls. :)

Thanks, Magi, for participating in my Favorite Ingredient Friday- Sandwich Edition. I do appreciate it!
