EVRR Tribute Sandwich: Baby Pistachio Grilled Cheese

Every railroad needs a sandwich. Trust me, it's true. This one is based on this recipe.
You'll need some pistachios. Shell a 1/4 cup.
You're going to make a pesto to spread on the bread: pistachios, sage, lemon, garlic and olive oil mixed up in a food processor.
Add, of course, cheese. We used some organic, medium aged Canadian cheddar.
On the bread, spread olive oil on one side so the sandwich doesn't stick to the grill.
That's your pesto - Debra made this as she's got the magic touch.
Spread a thin layer of pesto on the bread followed by a thin layer of apple sauce on top. We used no-sugar added, organic apple sauce.
Then pile on the cheese.
The assembled sandwiches were popped in the grill until golden brown.
I'd say they're ok, but not great. I wouldn't have known there were pistachios in it if I didn't add them myself. The search continues for the ultimate pistachio sandwich :-)
Before we wrap this up, look, with all this talk about organic this and sage that, there's my secret ingredient for most sandwiches: Bone Suckin' Mustard. Get some cheddar cheese, slather some of that mustard on the bread, pop in the grill, and around two minutes later you've got yourself a very tasty sandwich. Looks like its best before date is June, so I gotta get crackin' on sandwiches :-)


  1. Another option is a toasted cheese sandwich with a dash of sweet chilli sauce, a classic winter warmer.
