Firehouse Chef Dewey: #SeriousSandwich A light dinner with a Grilled Caprese Sandwich

#SeriousSandwich A light dinner with a Grilled Caprese Sandwich

Ok, I decided to make the Sandwich Caprese found on Pg. 169, and I added my twist to it, and oh my! I think I died and went to heaven I love caprese, My brother-in-law Larry turned me on to them when I first married my wife Misse, he would make them as an appetizer and its been one of my favorite things when we go there for dinner. The fresh mozzarella, basil, tomato, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper I could make a dinner out of it, usually ate way too much. So when I got the book and saw the sandwich caprese I knew it was a sandwich I'd enjoy, but I took Emeril's challenge to make it my own and I did, I made a pesto spread with Basil, Olive Oil, Balsamic Vinegar Glaze, Romano cheese and it was amazing and made the tomato, mozzarella pop! I made them and one of my fellow firefighters tried it, and I think he finished the sandwich in 4 bites and quickly had a 2nd one, It was amazing I also made it with a Grilled Garlic Toast and used Emerils Garlic Parmesan essence for bread.

I knew I would like this as caprese is a favorite of mine, but never thought I'd love it...I can honestly say that this new Emeril's Stacked with Flavor Kicked-Up Sandwiches Cookbook, is one of my favorites and I have a 50-60 different cookbooks plus, that I like but this book is the full monty, Like Ive said gives you multiple options, and there is literally multiple sandwiches for all tastes,  with the cook along I forced myself to try new things, and sandwiches I would never have ordered, and I can honestly say Its opened my palette to a whole new level,  Don't forget to check out Emerils website or theSecret Ingredient blog to follow the 20 other bloggers cooking along with Emeril trying and sharing their experiences. I for one have had an absolute great time making the different recipes.

Remember the book is now available and I highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys to cook, or if you love sandwiches, your going to love this book...I promise. Make sure you follow the other bloggers  for a chance to win a copy of Emerils new Cookbook.

Mmmm... Caprese. I'm with you--I could turn the elements of Caprese Salad into a meal by itself! One of my favorite local food trucks serves a Caprese sandwich on ciabatta rolls. I was thinking of trying Emeril's version the same way.

Yep, the classic flavors of the Caprese salad are some of my favorites ... and I love that they work as a sandwich as well!
