Re/Pa* Recipe

*Refrigerator/Pantry Recipes

I have pulled together some delicious meals from what I have on hand. I have pulled together some really strange meals as well. Fortunately, today's gleanings from the refrigerator and pantry provided us with a tasty lunch.



Have you seen the new Deli Flat Breads from Pepperidge Farm? They are quite tasty and allow the filling to be the diva in the sandwich. I had a package in the freezer that I picked up at the market a few weeks ago. The cheese drawer had a big hunk of provolone. The crisper held a few leftover mushrooms and two green onions.


I seasoned the mushrooms and onions with a little salt and pepper and lightly sauteed them in olive oil.

I put thinly sliced provolone on both sides of the bread and added a generous portion of the sauteed onions and mushrooms. The sandwiches were then browned in a little more olive oil until the cheese started to ooze out.

A simple salad added the right touch for a simply delicious lunch.

I'm going to keep these delicious little breads in the freezer and try different fillings. Maybe a base for individual sandwich pizzas? We'll see what's in the Re/Pa next time.

  5. That is an nice looking lunch. I don't know what it is about lunch for me, but that is my least favorite to eat or make. All my creativity is gone! Since I live so close to Whole Foods, I tend to go there almost everyday for lunch. Now that I'm stuck at home, though it isn't as easy, so I have to actually make something :(

  6. Bonnie, I love this! It looks delcious.

    I have been MIA for a few weeks as I have been without computer access and will be again. I just read that you are going to be in Florida. If you are coming to St. Augustine, I'd love to meet you. You can contact me through my friend Lisa (aka West) as I won't have any access to my computer. We are having spring maintenance done on our house there, and I'm supervising. :-)

    Glad you stopped by for a visit. I've enjoyed perusing your blog, too!

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  14. Your sandwich and salad look like a ceative use of what's left in the pantry and refrigerator. Thanks for the gentle reminder that with a little imagination a lot can be made with a few good ingredients.

  18. Thank you for visiting Pondside today - nice to meet you. Chicago is a place I've long wished to visit, so I'll enjoy the photos on your blogspot.
    Your sandwiches look delicious. I don't think we can get that particular flat bread up here, but I'll have a look. Lunch is my favorite meal of the day, and I love a good sandwich!

  22. This looks yummy! I have the flatbreads by Arnold but not the Pepperidge Farms. I'll pick up that kind next & do a comparison. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go make myself some lunch...just like yours!
