Sam Press Tes(t)

September 28, 2009

Alright so, we have 2 new sandwich presses at work now. I’ve tested them and I do like them…for different reasons. Checkkkk it outtt.

The Proctor Silex #1

She’s hot! Watch your lunch and expect the bread to burn before the cheese melts. OR, like any good BBQ master, flip that sh*t! Nice and even on each side and you will be well pleased.

I had the same reuben for lunch as last night’s dinner, only with Keens Hot Mustard instead of the grainy stuff. I don’t know about that grainy mustard, and its the expensive jar too! Maybe I just haven’t found my recipe yet.

Proctor Silex #2– Meal Maker Edition

The second press I have used before. It truly is a press cause it flattens your sandwich into some locked-up bread of hot and melted. I think I can get pretty crafty with these pockets, we will see how it goes.

The Meal Maker also takes the liberty of cutting your sandwiches into triangles, Thank you!

Home Brew- Old Faithful

Now whether at the office or at home, when making a warmed sam you always want to put the pressure on that sucker. Fry that guy and help melt the cheese! Use your spatula and press it down OR let the pickles do the muscle work…

Now looking at the photos above, the bread on this last sam is most definitely toasted to perfection HOWEVER! I always butter the outside when pan-toasting at home. Unfair advantage? Mmm Mmm either way.

Corned Beef and Sauerkraut….a reuben I guess. Didn’t really think about it like that, but that’s what it is: and accidental reuben. I just LOVE sauerkraut so much that this was more of a sauerkraut craving than a reuben recipe. I also love to spell sauerkraut, so I’m gonna write sauerkraut as much as possible in this post. Reuben is pretty good to write too.

Ingredients: Corned Beef, Mozzerella Cheese, Sauerkraut, Grainy Mustard on whole wheat flax bread…buttered and grilled (to perfection) in a pan!

What the?! This sam totally looks like Pac-Man eating pickles instead of cherries!

OH! and I said I was getting back into the sandwich game, so I had me some dessert after dinner.

This sandwich was as well pressed as a men’s wallet. It’s contents, melted and priceless.

Ingredients: Turkey, Swiss, Tomato, Mayo, Dijon and S&P on multigrain.



*More pockets of love to come, thanks to the 2 panini press additions in the office kitchen. Thanks Mayne!

This ham & swiss is the stepping stone to another chapter of Mmmayo. As autumn is upon us, I’m ready to get back in the sandwich game. There’s a new deli up the street and I got a hot tip on a local cheese spot. Stay tuned for more-exciting sandwiches than this one…

Ingredients: Ham, Swiss Cheese, Lettuce, Mustard and Mayo on whole wheat bread.
