Some Winter Sandwiches that are a Little Unique

I don't know about you but I happen to love "Sandwiches."  There's something to be said about the ability to hold food in your hands and eat.  It doesn't have to be between two slices of bread but that works best for me.  The fun is in all the things you can do to make a sandwich you love.

Now different times of the year bring out different sandwiches.  Spring makes you think of some type of light sandwich.  Nothing too heavy.  Summer has burgers and dogs and other sandwiches of the grill.  In the fall, pulled pork and brisket seems to fill our bread or buns.

But when winter comes along, you look for something more hearty and comforting.  Well this week I have 2 sandwiches that should meet that criterion.  They are both also a little unique from your common sandwich thoughts.

The first on Wednesday is a takeoff of the classic Monte Cristo sandwich.  It's called "Type of Monte Cristo Sandwich" but it uses a béchamel sauce instead of an custard type egg dip.

Then on Thursday, I have a "Potato Waffle Melt" that uses mashed potatoes in place of bread.  You will need a waffle maker for this sandwich but it will be well worth it.  This one is actually great for after Thanksgiving or Christmas to help use some leftovers.

Please give them a try.  I'm sure you will be impressed with them.  Do share them too.  Until next week, "Happy Cooking" and enjoy.
