Copycat Nebraska Runzas

Copycat Nebraska Runza Pocket Sandwiches ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #beef #cabbage #sandwich #recipe

Guided by tips from here, the Runza web site and bunches of other posts … Nebraska is a nearby state. There’s a thing in Nebraska that I never quite understood … well, okay, there are a couple things in Nebraska that I don’t really get. First of all, they’re really really really serious about their football. I don’t […]


Vietnamese Pork Banh Mi Sandwiches

Vietnamese Pork Banh Mi Sandwiches ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Asian #Pork #Sandwich #recipe

Highly adapted from The Food Network I’ve been seeing Pork Banh Mi sandwiches all over the foodisphere lately … and wondering just what is so wonderful about these sandwiches? So when I found myself with a big ol’ hunk of pork and a big event coming up that I was doing the food for, I […]


Slow Cooker Spiced Pulled Pork in Wine

Slow Cooker Spiced Pulled Pork in Wine ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pulledpork #crockpot #recipe

I’m doing the food for a food and wine tasting event this week and we decided the theme this month is spring salads. I gave my wine store friend a selection of salads to choose from and one of the salads he chose was my BBQ Pulled Pork Cobb Salad. Good choice! That salad is hearty, full of […]


Grilled Cheddar Swiss Breakfast Sandwich

Grilled Cheddar Swiss Breakfast Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls - a bit of mustard makes this tastebud nirvana

Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month? It is!!! I know I’m weird, but that really makes me happy. I adore grilled cheese sandwiches–both making them and eating them. Toasting the bread to perfection while getting the cheese good and melty is the challenge, and when achieved, the simple grilled cheese sandwich […]


Pesto Eggplant Parmesan Grilled Cheese

Pesto Eggplant Parmesan Grilled Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #vegetarian #eggplant #sandwich #recipe

Eggplant Parmesan is a divine dish even for eggplant haters, but it is typically loaded with fat from frying the eggplant and then putting sauce and loads of cheese on top. It takes a bit of work, too, to do all that. This sandwich is superb simplicity. It’s eggplant parmesan without all the work. Even […]


Eggplant & Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta

Roasted Eggplant & Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #summer #tomato #appetizer #recipe

Bruschetta is one of my very favorite summertime snacks (or rather, meals. as a few of these little toasts is a complete meal for me). I make bruschetta as soon as I have a couple freshly ripe tomatoes from the garden and then over and over and over again throughout the late summer tomato season, savoring […]


Mushroom Smoked Gouda Grilled Cheese

Mushroom Smoked Gouda Grilled Cheese Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #delicious #lunch #recipe

When I had those treasured wild mushrooms that my dad gave me a while back, it threw me into a mushroom kick. Even after the wild mushrooms were gone, I had to have more mushrooms, so I went out and bought some of those oh-so-tame-but-still-pretty-good fresh mushrooms from the grocery store and I sauteed them […]


Buffalo Chicken & Broccoli Grilled Cheese

Buffalo Chicken & Broccoli Grilled Cheese Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #spicy #GrilledCheese #sandwich #recipe

Does it ever happen to you that you get so busy doing ridiculous things like hosting a virtual party on facebook or editing photos or perusing Pinterest or running your kids to their various appointments that you forget to do something really basic like feeding yourself? Yeah, that happens to me more than I’d like […]


Turkey Florentine Sandwich

Toasted Turkey Florentine Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hot #cheesy #grilled #turkey #sandwich with #spinach & #sundriedtomato

Let’s take a break from all the holiday goodies for a gosh awful good sandwich! A grilled turkey sandwich with melty Italian cheese, spinach, sundried tomato, cream cheese, Greek yogurt and garlic. I made this sandwich the first time as a way to use up some leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, but it was so good, […]


Tomato Basil & Gouda Breakfast Sandwich

Tomato Basil & Smoked Gouda Breakfast Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #sandwich #recipe

I have just a few fresh garden tomatoes left (the last from the plants I brought inside when it started freezing at night) and I want to put these last little garden treasures to good use. The other day I made myself a cheesy bruschetta, which is always good, and this morning I was craving something […]


Bacon Eggplant & Tomato Sandwiches

Bacon Eggplant & Tomato Sandwich with Smoked Provolone & Fresh Basil ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #sandwich #recipe

with smoked provolone and fresh basil I swear there were two of these sandwiches … one of them just disappeared before my photo shoot. I just couldn’t wait to TASTE this deliciousness. Normally I can wait until I finish the photo session to eat, but not this time. I couldn’t keep my hands from grabbin’ […]


Bacon Asparagus Breakfast Sandwich

Bacon Asparagus Breakfast Sandwich with Smoked Gouda on a whole wheat ciabatta roll ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #breakfast #recipe #togo

with Smoked Gouda cheese I made this yummy breakfast sandwich last week when I came home from yoga and then my kids and I were headed out the door to go to the lake. I wanted something fast, delicious and portable and this totally fit the bill! It curbed my hunger, replenished the protein my […]


Maple Strawberry Rhubarb Grilled Cheese

Maple Strawberry Rhubarb Grilled Cheese Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sweet #fruit #sandwich #recipe

Adapted from Roti n Rice I’ve been wanting to make a strawberry grilled cheese sandwich for ages it seems, since I saw a brie and strawberry sandwich and I thought it sounded SO good. I actually used to have some Brie, but I took it up to my mom and dad’s, intending to try something […]


Ham, Cheese & Chive Crescent Pinwheels

Ham, Cheese & Chive Cresent Pinwheels ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #portable #sandwich #recipe

Perfect picnic food … they are like little portable sandwiches you can take with you anywhere. Great for dipping in soup, or you could serve them as an appetizer. The best part, in my mind, is that no cans of crescent roll dough were used in the making of these little portable sandwiches. I was looking […]


Turkey Fontina Romesco Sandwich on Brioche

Turkey Fontina Romesco Sandwich on Brioche Bun ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sumptuous #sandwich #recipe

with Romesco sauce, red onion, and mixed greens There are days when I come home and I just need something quick because I’m STARVING! But my opinionated, snobbish taste-buds stubbornly refuse to “settle” for something boring and ordinary. I spend the time on the drive home thinking “what is IN my fridge and how on […]


Grilled Sundried Tomato, Ham & Fontina Sandwich

Grilled Sundried Tomato Ham & Fontina Cheese Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

Melty ooey gooey Fontina cheese with juicy lean ham and sundried tomato pesto on homemade white whole wheat bread, toasted to crunchy perfection. It’s New Year’s Day. I unpacked things and cleaned up the kitchen, took my daughter to Panera, changed light bulbs and the furnace filter, exercised, broke down boxes for recycling and put […]


Cheddar Ham & Broccoli Roll

Cheddar Ham & Broccoli Roll ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

I have been wanting sandwiches with my soup, but not really having time to make up a sandwich for myself every day. Last weekend I was pondering this problem, and I figured out a way to make this easy! All I needed was to bake the sandwich into my loaf of bread. I knew ham […]


The Mighty Denver Breakfast Sandwich

The Mighty Denver Breakfast Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Breakfast #Recipe

Think Denver omelet in a sandwich, kicked up a notch in flavor with some marvelously melty Havarti cheese, a slice of juicy red garden tomato and a good schmear of smoky Roasted Red Pepper Cashew Cream Sauce. When I heard that the awesome Swedish Pancake Pan from Swiss Diamond was on its way to my house, […]


Turkey Tomato Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich

Turkey Tomato Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich with Havarti Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

with Havarti Cheese and Mixed Greens I wish I could think of a shorter name for this sandwich … I pondered it long and hard and eventually I just gave up. It’s just got too many good things inside it! The Smoky Red Pepper Cashew Cream Sauce is the star, the flavor burst that makes […]


Smoked Turkey Spinach Sundried Tomato Sandwich

Smoked Turkey Spinach Sundried Tomato Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

There are times when I’m soooo hungry that it’s hard to wait for the food to get done, let alone force myself to abstain from eating long enough to take a few photos before I inhale my food. This sandwich was one of THOSE. I made this after going to a power yoga class the […]


Smoky Grilled Turkey, Gouda & Pear Sandwich

Smoky Grilled Turkey, Gouda & Pear Sandwich with Arugula ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

Crunchy toasted bread, melty smoked gouda cheese, with smoked turkey, sweet pears and peppery arugula. I had so many plans for those lovely pears I got from my friends and had such fun cooking with them (and just enjoying them straight up, no prep, just pure pear-liciousness). One of the things I thought would be […]


Asian Ginger Garlic Zucchini Beef Sliders

Asian Garlic Zucchini Beef Sliders ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sliders #recipe

Highly adapted from All Recipes. These little munchie burger-lings are a little deceiving … they look like hamburgers … and so they are … but they have all the flavors of Asia packed inside them, plus a couple veggies hiding inside there. They have a touch of spicy heat, garlic, and freshly grated ginger. The […]


Smoked Cheddar & Gouda Breakfast BLT

Smoked Cheddar & Gouda Breakfast BLT Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

The Bacon Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich may be the most quintessential heavenly sandwich food ever invented. Still, I can’t help but tweak my BLT every time I make it. First of all, it needs cheese. Really really good melty cheese. Because, I mean, what could possibly be better than fresh garden tomatoes with melted cheese and […]


Turkey Avocado BLT Sandwich

Turkey Avocado Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #BLT #recipe

I modeled this sandwich after one I had downtown at the Diner. The sandwich was SO good, I wrapped up the other half that I couldn’t eat for later … and then I was so sad when I left it on the table. So when I came home and found my little tomato plant had […]
