Begin by mixing up some harissa mayo and spreading it onto a slice of bread.
To make the spread, just take a little mayo and add a tiny bit of harissa until you get a spiciness level that you dig. Mix it up and spread it on.
Then shred some of Marieke’s Onion Garlic Gouda and sprinkle it on top. There’s just 2 weeks left of my Wisconsin Cheese Month feature and I have to say that this company is one of my all time favs. She makes the best gouda in the whole country and I’m basically obsessed in a weird stalker kind of way.
Now get you some of the Underground Food
Collective’s pickled green tomatoes or make some yourself. They’re tart, sweet, and bright. They make this sandwich perfectly balanced.
Now just fry up some thinly cut strips of Underground Butcher’s perfectly made sopressata and put them on top. Surprisingly, this tasty salami fries up like pancetta and makes this sandwich have a nice meaty crunch that I totally wanna eat all the time.
Add some more cheese and put the top piece of bread on. Then smear the outer layers with the harissa mayo (yes, instead of butter) and get ready to grill!
Place your sandwich in and turn the heat to medium – slowly letting the pan and sandwich heat up simultaneously. YAY!
If you have one of these presses, heat that shit up and get it ready to use. I usually use this method when the sandwich is really big and it looks like it’s going to fall apart but you could use anything – a heavy cast iron skillet, a tinfoil wrapped brick, your roommates ancient computer – unplugged of course.
Once it’s heated up, gently put the press on top and let it grill away! Press it down gently to help the heat evenly disperse.
After a few minutes it should be all gooey and melty and grilled. At that point, take it off and let it sit for a sec while the flavors get all sexy and stuff. Then eat!
So if you’re not feeling super motivated today or haven’t been in a while, don’t worry. it’s completely natural for these feelings to come in waves and you shouldn’t think something’s wrong with you. In fact, it should only help you be more supportive of your friends that are in this state. Believe me, it’s contagious and by engulfing yourself in their undying enthusiasm, you yourself will be ready to make waves. SPREAD THE LOVE PEOPLE!!!
