Did I mention that it gets hot in Tennessee during the summer?
It gets hot in Tennessee during the summer.
When I'm overly hot I really don't feel like cooking over a hot stove or oven. Who's with me?
Ok. So Anthony and I have discovered the easiest, yummiest summer recipe ever. Here's what you need:
a kitchen grill (you know, the cheap knock-off forman grills everyone has)
bread of any kind...Italian, preferably
meat of any kind--I prefer salami or ham, Anthony likes to mix both those with turkey
cheese--fresh mozzarella cheese is our preference, along with a bit o'provolone
any sorts of dressing for a sandwich you prefer. Our favorites are
Trader Joe's green olive tapenade
fresh basil leaves
Preheat Grill according to manufacturer instructions. Assemble sandwich any way you like (my preference is pesto on one side, tapenade on the other, fresh basil leaf, mozzarella, salami and ham) and brush both sides of sandwich with olive oil. Place on grill until your desired brown-ness is reached.
See? Easy! Check out that fresh mozzarella...
