Cuban Bread (Pan Cubano)

Cuban Bread | bsinthekitchen.com #cuban #bread #bsinthekitchen

The time has come for another Ethnic Potluck with the Ayden Kitchen & Bar crew, and this time I drew Cuba! What dish would I cook? Well, with my reputation for delicious sandwiches, and my last Ethnic Potluck contribution being a Banh Mi, it made perfect sense that I tackle the famous Cubano! Now, when serving Cuban Sandwiches to a room full of chefs, you can’t go about it half-assed! Although I have never been to Cuba, or had an authentic Cuban Sandwich, from my research, I knew the bread was a very important part. It’s a sandwich, so of course the bread is important. It’s half the damn thing!

Asian Steak Sandwich

Asian Steak Sandwich | bsinthekitchen.com #steak #sandwich #bsinthekitchen

I’m gonna go right ahead and say that I have the best room-mates ever! Nathan is an executive chef, Ross is a cook, and Celeste is a pastry Chef. Needless to say, some pretty awesome culinary happenings have a tendency of going down here!

Thanks to Celeste’s sourdough starter she calls “Fester”, we have a steady supply of fresh sourdough bread being baked up every few days. Last night as Celeste made a couple loaves, she did some experimentation with one of them, and added sesame seeds. Not only did it turn out delicious, but it inspired me to create an “Asian Steak Sandwich”, which was not only beautiful, but delicious!

Chili Cheese Grilled Cheese

Chili Cheese Grilled Cheese | bsinthekitchen.com #sandwich #grilledcheese #bsinthekitchen

What needs to be said about this one? They have chili cheese fries, chili cheese dogs, chili cheese nachos, so the next logical step (at least for me) is a Chili Cheese Grilled Cheese! Plenty of hearty chili, loads of cheese, sandwiched between two buttery slices of bread.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Grilled Cheese

Chicken Cordon Bleu Grilled Cheese | bsinthekitchen.com #grilledcheese #sandwich #bsinthekitchen

Many of my grilled cheese creations stem from deconstructing a traditional dish, and turning it into a sandwich format (because sandwiches are simply the best!). For this one, I took my inspiration from the classic Chicken Cordon Bleu, a dish where chicken is stuffed with ham and swiss cheese, and often covered with a creamy sauce. Now you can enjoy this savoury meal between your fingertips instead of with fork and knife!

Philly Cheese Steak Grilled Cheese

Philly Cheese Steak Grilled Cheese | bsinthekitchen.com #grilledcheese #sandwich #bsinthekitchen

Now I’m no authority on Philly Cheese Steaks, I haven’t had many in my life, but I must admit to fantasizing about those delicious things on more than one occasion. Plenty of meat, cheese, caramelized onions, and whatever you may want to add on to it! A sandwich after my own heart! Or just a sandwich trying to stop my own heart…

Banh Mi Sandwich

Banh Mi Sandwich | bsinthekitchen.com #sandwich #vietnamese #bsinthekitchen

I was little frightened when my room-mate Nathan told me I was going to be in charge of cooking something for “Ethnic Potluck 2014″, a potluck with all the kitchen staff from Ayden Kitchen & Bar. Naturally it’s a little intimidating cooking with chefs of that level, and knowing I had to make a dish from another country didn’t help! Fortunately I got Vietnam, which I felt was one of the less intimidating submissions amongst places such as Peru, Croatia, Morocco, & more. After doing some research, given my love of sandwiches, I knew the Banh Mi was the way to go!

With my research and a little consultation from Nathan, I was ready to prepare my feast of Banh Mi! The end result was delicious! Although I have never actually had a Banh Mi, I think I did pretty darn good, and everyone else seemed quite satisfied with my contribution.

Steak & Blue Cheese Sandwich

Steak & Blue Cheese Sandwich | bsinthekitchen.com #lunch #sandwich #bsinthekitchen

In the final round of steak leftovers, I give you one more steak and blue cheese inspired dish! Probably one of the most typical ways to use up leftover steak is in a sandwich of course! This one is pretty much a combination of the last two dishes I posted, but stuck between two slices of bread! Once again using the tangy blue cheese dressing, loading the sandwich with veggies, steak, and even some leftover caramelized onions! YUM!

Top 5 Grilled Cheese Sandwiches + CONTEST

National Grilled Cheese Month - Top 5 Grilled Cheese Sandwiches + CONTEST | bsinthekitchen.com #grilledcheese #sandwich #bsinthekitchen

I just can’t let go of the daily grilled cheese posts…

Therefore I have decided to do a roundup of my top 5 sandwiches of the month (in no particular order). I also wanted to use this opportunity to help promote an awesome contest being hosted by Wisconsin Cheese’s Grilled Cheese Academy. I have found myself gazing at the amazing grilled cheese sandwiches on their website more than once, and it is with great pain that I am unable to enter any of their contests since I’m Canadian (and there have been a few!). Even though I can’t enter, I hope all you wonderful U.S. readers/grilled cheese lovers will take a moment to check it out. There are some awesome prizes, and they choose 11 winners so your odds are better than most contests!

The German Grilled Cheese

The German Grilled Cheese | bsinthekitchen.com #grilledcheese #sandwich #bsinthekitchen

If anyone has read the About the BS tab on our blog, you may have noticed we have a very German last name. Well our last name actually means “Germaner” or the literal translation would be “German Boy”, so it only seemed fitting that we should honour our heritage with this German Grilled Cheese. Let’s get to the recipe to see if it meets those high German standards!
