This cold weather really has me staying close to the fire this year. Seems like the older I get, the more I feel the cold……and the heat for that matter. Right now, it’s a balmy 30 degrees out there and it feels like 10 to me. What’s up with that?
We had a pretty busy weekend though, my parents were out for a visit. They live about 4 hours east of the Ogden area, but they visit quite often. So every time, we went Italian and it was super good! We made fresh pasta with chicken Parmesan and I must say, that was a very tasty treat. Now it’s back to the treadmill with a renewed enthusiasm to quickly remove the extra pounds that I seem to be putting on since the holiday season started. Let’s just say, I have a ways to go!!!!!
After the weekend with lots of family surrounding us and all the yummy fixin’s I decided that we needed something quick, healthy and somewhere along the lines of comforting type food, so I caramelized some onions, and sauteed some bell peppers and mushrooms.
Then I spread some pesto on a piece of bread, I used whole wheat, but please do what you prefer. FYI – Mr. doesn’t really get into pesto, he prefers the basics, so I let him fix a sandwich that was more to his liking.
Then the fun starts, it’s time to start piling on the fixin’s, this is my favorite part!!!!! Start with a little deli meat, I used sliced roast beef on this one…..but don’t think that the turkey wasn’t calling my name as well.
Then comes the caramelized onions……
Then the peppers and the mushrooms.
Then I put a little slice of
heaven provolone cheese on the top……YUMMMM!
Pop that baby into the broiler for about 5 minutes, or until the cheese on top is melted and somewhat bubbly and serve it up. Better bring a bib for this, it’s really good!
Open Face Sandwiches
Sliced bread (white or wheat)
Sliced Deli Meat (about 4 slices per sandwich)
Caramelized onions (2)
Sauteed red and greed bell peppers (1 each)
2 Tbsp olive oil
Provolone cheese (1 slice per sandwich)
Caramelize onions by slicing them thinly and sauteing them in olive oil until caramel colored. Saute bell peppers and mushrooms together. Spread pesto on a slice of bread, add deli meat, folding over to allow for coverage of the bread. Top with onions, then bell peppers and finally cheese. Broil for 5 minutes or until cheese has completely melted. Serve immediately.
