In honor of National Sandwich Day here are two of my favorite egg sandwiches as well as a guide to Italian cured meats and how to make your own roasted peppers. Enjoy the day and make a sandwich for dinner tonight!
Fried Egg Sandwich with Provola:
Next to salumi, the fried egg (with a runny warm, runny, yoke) makes the ideal sandwich ingredient, here’s a recipe: http://www.scordo.com/2010/07/simple-fried-egg-sandwich-with-provola-leffe.html
Another egg sandwich (not sure which recipe is better): http://www.scordo.com/2010/04/recipe-fried-egg-panino-on-ciabatta-chickpea-spread-tomato.html
Guide to Italian Deli, or Cured, Meats:
I’ve waxed philosophically about my love of salumi on Scordo.com on numerous occasions and all of the following cured meats make excellent ingredients: http://www.scordo.com/2009/10/cured-italian-italian-pork-meat-salumi-prosciutto-capocollocacciatoresoppressata.html
Every sandwich could, or should, contain roasted peppers. Please don’t ever buy canned roasted peppers as they’re very easy to make at home. See my recipe: http://www.scordo.com/2010/05/recipe-homemade-roasted-peppers-olive-oil.html
