Ok, time to clean out the fridge before I go to the grocery store for the Christmas dinner stuff. So yeah, easy breakfast today. Had a little bit of the sliced smoked turkey ham and provolone left from the sandwiches I’ve been making daily this past week. And an almost empty box of whole wheat instant pancake mix. Yep, nothing fancy.
Sorry, no official recipe for this one. I simply poured the batter into a medium-heated skillet and topped it with slices of turkey ham and provolone. Flipped it over after a couple of minutes and topped it with some more of the same. Served with butter and maple syrup. Yum!
You can do this, can’t you?
Every once in a while, I’d browse through the veggie section of the grocery store and notice some greens I’ve never had before. Like the other day, I picked up a bag of upland cress. Interesting, I thought! The roots are all intact and the thing’s apparently alive, also. Well, that’s what the label says anyway. So, I thought I’d give it a try on a sammie, for starters.
Mmmm… peppery! Reminds me of arugula but in a different way. Pretty fancy, actually. Really kicked my turkey club up a notch, for sure.
Here’s what I used: Organic Whole Wheat Bread, All-Natural Honey-Smoked Turkey Ham, Turkey Bacon, Upland Cress, Swiss Cheese, Low-Fat Mayo and Organic Dijon Mustard. I slapped them altogether, drizzled the bread with a little organic EVOO and toasted it on a medium-low heated grill pan for a few minutes on each side. Served with Veggie Chips. Yum!
I went to Sprouts the other day and shoveled up some fresh veggie chips in a bag. Man, those are good! I immediately thought of doing grilled cheese to go with it but I happen to have some deli slices of smoked turkey and turkey bacon from last week. And they have to be used up already. Now, the only thing missing is soup. Too bad I don’t have any right now. Oh well…
Okay, no exact recipe here, folks. I just threw in whatever’s in the fridge and pantry. On this one, I mixed in finely chopped cilantro and bacon salt with olive oil mayonnaise and slathered it on 3 slices of dill rye. I slipped in a few turkey slices, 3 strips of turkey bacon, a couple slices of provolone and more whole cilantro leaves. Then I placed it on a panini grill pan in medium-low heat for about 3 minutes. And there you go. Now, do yours!
