After my last post and days of combining fresh tomatoes, olive oil, garlic and basil piled on top toasted bread, hubs has put his foot down regarding the usage of the “B-word” around here which describes that dish. 

I’m not to use it anymore, say’s he’s heard it far too many times.  B this, B that, “look at this beautiful “B-style” sandwich, “we’re having a side of “B” tonight”, “Isn’t this “b” delicious”, “look how pretty and fresh the “b” looks”…I’ve even been banned from watching Giada because she says it all the time. Too funny. Now don’t get me wrong, he’ll eat it till the cows come home, he’s just annoyed with that word.

So with all that said I’d like to show you another (but not last) open-faced style sandwich which has been placed on a slab of toasted french bread.  🙂

Kathy over at Wives With Knives posted this sandwich a couple of weeks ago and I nearly dropped to my knees when I looked at her delicious photo. Plus, never would I have thought to finish this with a vinaigrette and parmesan. It was awesome. I like her idea of the frizzled style greens and will use those next time I make it, but I needed to use to my carton of mache for now. 

Even though the presentation wasn’t as dramatic and impressive with the mache, it was a delicious little meal. Not to mention that I really got my money’s worth out of that loaf of bread over the last few days.

Kathy has a wonderful blog.  The number of recipes I’ve bookmarked from her site is ridiculous. And with all of that fresh Oregon and Willamette Valley produce and products, I look forward to each and every one of her posts.

Head on over to Kathy’s blog to see a really great photo of this sandwich!  And don’t hesitate to give this “B-style” sandwich a try.

Now for a little fun. This photo showed up on my computer along side the bacon and egg  “B” when I downloaded off my camera. It took me days to figure out what it was. Take a guess. I’ll give you a hint, it’s a kitchen essential that I use every single day. I must have accidentally taken the photo when I was sitting the camera down.

Egg, Lettuce and Bacon “B”…

It’s What’s For Dinner.

  1. I’m getting caught up on my reading and thought both of your last two dishes sounded delicious and both had excellent presentations.

  2. LMAO – I love a post about the “B” word. Our tomatoes are just starting to come at us fast and heavy so my hubby is still requesting bruschetta by its full name. 😛 That sandwich looks heavenly – I checked out Kathy’s blog (and added it to my reader, thank you)and her version is spectacular, too!

    As for the photo – what the heck is that? I would guess, maybe a micro-plane or other grater, because I’m pretty sure you haven’t taken up bee-keeping.

  3. Wow, that’s a puzzle. It will probably be obvious once I know, but at the moment I’m completely stumped. I’m so happy you enjoyed your sandwich. Isn’t it amazing how delicious the most basic ingredients can be? Thanks so much for the kind words, Lea Ann, I really appreciate it.

    Hope you are enjoying a great holiday weekend.

    • It’s my yellow silicone pot holder Kathy. Again, thanks for this great bruschetta idea. Whew, did it feel good to type that word. 🙂

  4. Oh my mouth is watering! This sounds delicious!

    • Thank you Amanda and thanks for stopping by

  5. That sandwich looks and sounds wonderful. I’ve tried, but I can’t figure your picture out!

    • It’s my yellow silicone pot holder Pam. 🙂

  6. I’m gonna guess it is an extreme close up of a potholder

    • You are absolutely right. It took me alot longer to figure it out. My yellow silicone pot holder.

  7. Looks good enough to eat for breakfast…and think I will. Now.

  8. Very cute blog post. My husband will eat anything I put in front of him too. I’m sure he’d love this sandwich. Perfect for a quick weeknight meal. 🙂

  9. This is one of my favorite sandwiches, Lea Ann! Right after a BLT. I saw it on Cathy’s blog as well and if I weren’t trying to lose a few pounds, would have gone right in the kitchen and made one.

  10. That’s a lovely sandwich and I can have that for beakfast! That’s a cool picture. I wouldn’t have guessed what it was had I not read your response.

  11. Haha I never noticed how much Giada uses the b word until you and someone else mentioned it today!

    This sandwich looks great. I always forget how much I love eggs until a post like this reminds me just how tasty they are!

  12. I love the idea of having bacon and eggs on a sandwich… might have to make this for brunch sometime too!

  13. hubba hubba that is a gorgeous droolicious egg sandwich. Damnity dang that makes me want one right now…with a side of hollandaise sauce. GREAT job!

    • Thanks Chris. It was really delicious. I had croque madam for the first time at a restaurant yesterday. Gotta try to make some of that too. I’ll probably blog about it.
