Kicked Up Sandwiches for NYE w/Emeril and #SundaySupper

SundaySupperMy favorite time of the week!! #SundaySupper time! When this weeks theme came up I think I may have been the first one with their hand up to be a part of this awesome party! With the holidays being crazy busy and us in the middle of the biggest move of our life I knew committing to this event would be difficult but I had to! It’s Emeril! I was more than thrilled when I received a copy of his Serious Sandwiches book because most of my kitchen stuff is packed and well Sandwiches was exactly what I had on my mind. As I made my way through the book not only did my mouth start watering but I couldn’t believe how many sandwiches could really be a “whole meal!!!” I love sandwiches, I always have, but just like every other person out there I get sick of them, but this book……….you are going to want to try this one because you can make every one of these sandwiches a meal and then some!

Our founder of #SundaySupper, Isabel over at Family Foodie has personally met Emeril, interviewed Emeril, and has made many many of Emeril’s recipes before! I for one am hopping on the band wagon and joining her on this journey because there is nothing I enjoy more than cooking recipes from any successful chef out there. I have to admit when I first started cooking I duplicated, whipped up, conjured many of famous chef’s recipes, then I got more into blogging and started to make my fellow blogger’s recipes, now I need to find a middle ground because I miss my favorite chef’s! I have to admit, I wasn’t sure about this sandwich but it was a busy day at my house and we needed something filling but quick…..I was VERY happy with the lunch we had that day! Even my husband said, “this is a good sandwich!” I toasted the bread and it just made the sandwich!

Join me and the #SundaySupper crew as we create some of Emeril’s recipes from two of his hit cookbooks! One, Emeril’s Pot Luck, and the one I received, Emeril’s Serious Sandwiches! Click directly on the picture for a link to buy one or both of these books! You are not going to want to miss our chat this week because if your there, you could win one of these amazing books and cook right along with us!

Ingredients

  • Four 6-inch loaves Portuguese stick bread, or Italian or French loaves
  • 8 ounces sliced provolone cheese
  • 8 ounces sliced mortadella
  • 8 ounces sliced spicy ham, such as capicola
  • 8 ounces sliced salami
  • 1 large ripe tomato, cut into eight 1/4 inch-thick slices
  • 12 thin onion slices
  • 12 jarred hot or sweet cherry peppers, drained and roughly chopped
  • 2 cups torn green-leaf lettuce

Balsamic-Herb Vinaigrette

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

Instructions

1. Cut the loaves of bread in half lengthwise, and arrange them in a single layer, cut sides up. Liberally brush the bread with the vinaigrette. On the bottom half of each loaf, evenly layer one-quarter of the provolone, followed by one-quarter of the mortadella, one-quarter of the spicy ham, and one-quarter of the salami. Top with 2 slices of tomatoes and 3 slices of onion. Divide the cherry peppers among the sandwiches. Stir the vinaigrette and generously drizzle it over the onion and tomato.
