Monthly Delivery Meal- August 14th, 2022
The Tony Soprano BLT
Your kit includes:
A Loaf of Carbosaurus Rex Rosemary Focaccia (this comes pre-sliced like a giant hamburger bun)
One log Goat Lady Dairy Basil Garlic spreadable goat cheese
3 slicing tomatoes from Rudd Farm (these are not pre-sliced)
1 package of Providence Farm smoked hog jowl (Optional)
(bacons cheaper cousin; you will NOT know the difference)
1 bundle Organic Basil from Providence Farm
Salt/Pepper, Olive Oil, Balsamic Vinegar to your taste and totally optional…you do you, boo
Your first move will depend on a couple of things. Do you want your bread toasted? How toasted do you want the bread to be? Are you adding smoked hog jowl to your sandwich?
You can toast the Rosemary Focaccia by placing cut side up on a baking sheet in the oven for 5-10 minutes at 375 F and you can do this before or after you cook the smoked hog jowl. (Joy will be toasting her RoFo while the oven is preheating and then for a few minutes more, right before putting the pan of smoked hog jowl in the oven.)
If you’re adding the smoked hog jowl, remove the packaging and place the slices evenly on a baking sheet or in a cast iron pan. Place the pan on the middle rack and cook at 375 F for about 20 minutes depending on how you like it (want it crispy? Cook on, friend!).
While the meat is cooking, spread the entire contents of the Goat Lady Dairy Basil Garlic cheese on the inside of both top & bottom. (Again, pretend like you’re making a giant sandwich.)
Slice the Rudd Farm tomatoes and arrange the slices on the bottom piece of bread.
This is a great time to add salt & pepper and if you’re into it, drizzle a little balsamic vinegar and olive oil on those ‘maters. Remove the basil leaves from the bundle and arrange on top of tomatoes.
When hog jowl is finished cooking, remove from over and let rest for about 5 minutes. Remove from baking sheet/pan to a plate covered with a few paper towels. Let sit for 1-2 minutes and then arrange meat on top of basil.
Put the “lid” of the sandwich on and then cut sandwich into 4 pieces.
Easy peasy sandwiches to feed 4 using fresh, local food.
