Food Friday: Bossy Betty's Sandwich of Happiness and Bordering-on-Disturbing-but-Nevertheless-Intoxicating Bliss


You'll rise up and yell "Youch! That's good!" when you put those pretty little incisors of yours around this warm sandwich. It's a Betty Exclusive, written in Betty-Ease. Feel free to add, subtract and generally Make Your Will Known when you make it for yourself.

Betty no longer eats the proud, territorial bird known as the chicken, so you'll note everything here is veg. In fact, I made this for my vegans and they loved it. You can make it with fake chicken, with real chicken, with shredded tires. I believe anything coated with mayonnaise/veganaise, mixed with toasted pine nuts and slapped in a grill tastes good.

Here we go:

Bossy Betty's Sandwich of Happiness and Bordering-on-Disturbing-but-Nevertheless-Intoxicating Bliss

1 1/2 cups chopped chicken substitute. (I use Trader Joes "chicken" strips, and fry them just a bit)
Blob of Veganaise/Mayonnaise
Half Blob of prepared mustard
2 cloves of garlic (I use the frozen cubes from Trader Joes)
Curry to taste
Quarter cup or so of toasted pine nuts (I toast mine in the toaster over.)
Some chopped onion
Some chopped red pepper
About 1 or 2 TB of lemon juice.

Mix all this magic together.

Prepare two slices of sourdough bread by slathering (don't you just love that word?) one side of both pieces with Earth Balance or butter.

Flip over one piece of bread (am I going too fast here?) and put the filling on.

Slap on the upper piece (butter side out) and place in grill like a George Foremen.

(Got a panini maker? OH! I am jealous! Use it!)

Your inner Paula Dean will tell you when it's done. (Your inner Paula Dean will also urge you to slip a stick of butter in the sandwich and then deep fat fry it. Resist this.)

Have a Happy Friday! Betty Adores You!
