Ooey Gooey Sandwich

The other day, hubby reminded me that we haven't had a sandwich in ages. So when I went grocery shopping, I stocked up on some sandwich ingredients:
  • Alvarado St. Bakery California Style Complete Protein Bread - this was the first time we tried this bread, and we all loved it
  • Organic Salami
  • Organic Oven Roasted Chicken
  • Raw Sage Cheddar Cheese - considering what I ended up doing with the cheese, it's almost a bit funny that it was raw... :o)
  • Trader Joe's Wasabi Mayonnaise - everyone loves this...
I thought that since I hadn't made a sandwich in a while, I'd better make a good one. I remembered reading about putting a bit of mayonnaise on the outside of a sandwich before grilling it, so I decided to put a bit of Wasabi Mayonnaise on the outside of the sandwich before grilling it in a pan with just a tiny bit of olive oil. The inside was simply a bit of cheese, salami, & chicken.

And here is the finished product. I had originally planned on only making one for hubby, but once I saw, smelled, and tasted the sandwich, I had to make one for myself as well.... The outside was nice and crunchy, the sage in the cheese added an unexpected complexity, the cheese was nicely melted, and the tiny bit of Wasabi mayonnaise added just a little bit of heat. I just couldn't resist... :o)
