Can y’all believe it? This young girl right here did her first Facebook live segment for the Food Network yesterday! In all honesty, it was super stressful but also really fucking awesome at the same time. Yesterday I experienced first hand that there’s a huge difference between shooting a cooking video, editing it down to perfection, and then presenting it in tip top shape to your audience that makes it a breeze. This, on the other hand, was a different beast. Continue reading →
Omg y’all, did you know that today is National Sandwich Day?! If this isn’t one of the best, most tastiest holidays around, then I don’t know what is. And as you already know, I’m probably one of the biggest bread, butter and cheese advocates out there, so I think it’s safe to say that there’s not a more iconic American lunchtime staple than a sandwich – Ammi’right?!
To help get the word out about National Sandwich Day, I teamed up with my cheesy buddies at Lance Foods to make this super fun video. I had a blast walking around my hometown of sunny New Smyrna Beach, FL, to interview people about their sandwich love!
So with that being said, what do you think makes a sandwich a sandwich? Is a burrito a sandwich? How about a hot dog or a sushi roll? I personally agree with Lance’s philosophy which simplifies it to two awesomes on the outside with an incredible in the middle.
Whether it’s one of my crispy, creamy grilled cheese sandwiches, a fully loaded tasty six foot party sub, or a pack of the cutest little cheddar and peanut butter cracker sandwiches you’ve ever seen, I think we can all agree that sandwiches totally rule!
Alright y’all, let’s start this video series off right with a fresh and tasty new grilled cheese that’ll make you wanna slap yo mama! This little baby has all that is good and holy; Creamy toscano cheese melted onto crispy sweet potato fries, all grilled up between two slices of sourdough bread with some sweet and tangy barbecue butter. This is definitely a tasty little treat that you and your homies will love. I guarantee it! Well maybe not, unless you hate cheese, then get outta here. This website’s not for you ya biscuit head!
And in case you’d like some real instructions, then here ya go.
1 cup syrah soaked toscano cheese, grated
1 handful of sweet potato fries, cooked
2 pats of butter, room temp
2 tsp of barbecue seasoning
2 slices of sourdough bread
1. Combine barbecue seasoning with the butter and stir. Set aside.
2. Pile half of the cheese onto one piece of bread and top with sweet potato fries. Cover fries with the remaining cheese and place the top piece of bread on top. Smear that with barbecue butter.
3. Turn your stove top to medium heat and place the sandwich butter side down. Smear the rest of the butter onto the upper piece of bread and smush the sandwich with a press.
4. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until it’s all golden and toasty and the cheese starts to ooze out the sides. Remove from heat and let it sit for a few minutes.
5. EAT THE SANDWICH.
And how could I forget to thank my awesome friends and new neighbor/old bestie/videographer Christian Torres for shooting this ridiculously fun video. You should definitely check out his work if you know what’s good fer ya. Until next time my friends…
