Lunch Recipe: Yogurt-Marinated Chicken & Creamy Greek Sauce
On Monday I went a little over the top with my Chicken Cordon Bleu-Croque Monsieur. To prove that’s not how I always eat, I’m sharing a lighter meal that’s perfect to enjoy any day of the week. It’s a good thing my favorite Greek joint in Atlanta is a trek from my house, or I just might go there every day (and that could get a little dangerous). Without fail I order the lamb gyro plate with a zesty salad and garlic roasted coin potatoes.

How To Make Italian Piada Wraps at Home
You know gelato and you know espresso, but do you know piada? These delicious sandwich wraps are sold on street corners throughout Italy, particularly in Emilia-Romagna, and are filled with everything from prosciutto and arugula to nutella and bananas. No plane tickets are necessary, though. Piada are incredibly easy to make at home. Think of piada (also called piadina) as a cross between Middle Eastern pita breads and Mexican flour tortillas.

Recipe: Freezer-Friendly Roasted Vegetable Burritos with Black Beans and Rice
In one fell swoop, these burritos have changed the way we do lunch in my house. When we decide we’re in the mood for burritos, we prep everything on the weekend — roasting the veggies, cooking the rice, even shredding the cheese — and then it’s Burrito Bonanza all week long, baby! All that prep might sound like a lot, but it takes 30 minutes, tops. Your future self is going to be very happy.

Recipe: Mediterranean Breakfast Pitas
It’s easy to become rigid about what flavors are appropriate at breakfast time. Although cinnamon is delicious, it’s not the only spice on the morning market. Bringing your favorite Mediterranean-flavored sandwich from lunch to breakfast is as easy as putting an egg on it. This protein-packed combination of egg and hummus is a surefire way to start your day on the right note. Wrap it in a piece of foil, and you’re out the door with a portable breakfast.

Slow-Cooked Hoisin and Ginger Pork Wraps with Peanut Slaw
This recipe very handily fed almost a dozen people at a recent weekend get-together; there were even leftovers. It’s also a very easy and delicious recipe with terrific flavor. And yet it takes less than half an hour to put it all together. Perfect menu for company! This recipe is basically a riff on Elizabeth’s slow-cooked pork shoulder. Pork shoulder, also known as pork butt, is a relatively fatty and inexpensive cut of meat that is excellent for slow cooking and braises.
Feb 3, 2020
Recipe: Crème Fraîche Scrambled Egg and Smoked Salmon Sandwiches
Everyone likes to dress up now and again, right? Well, scrambled eggs feel the same way. Don’t deny them the opportunity to be adorned with some silky crème fraîche and aromatic herbs. This sandwich will raise your standard breakfast sandwich routine to the height of elegance. These eggs also look — and taste — sophisticated, cloaked in pink slices of smoked salmon. Serve them for brunch with a glass of sparkling wine, or even for dinner (wine still included).
Feb 3, 2020
Recipe: Fried Chicken Biscuits with Honey
Fried chicken on its own? Perfection. Fried chicken and waffles? Double perfection, which means fried chicken on a biscuit dripping with honey takes things to a whole new level. We’re taking this sandwich to weeknight status with shallow-fried chicken cutlets and the option to make or buy the biscuits — dealer’s choice. Frying big pieces of bone-in chicken is a bit of a daunting task, so this route is much easier.

Grill Recipe: Flatbread Stuffed with Curried Potatoes, Spinach, and Chickpeas
I’ll make no claims to authenticity with this recipe. It’s really more like an Indian-style calzone than the stuffed naan I’ve ordered in restaurants. But once those potatoes go all creamy in their spiced sauce and the flatbread bakes into a perfect toasty pocket on the grill, I’m pretty sure all those distinctions become moot.
Jan 29, 2020
Appetizer Recipe: Flatbreads with Goat Cheese, Caramelized Onions, and Basil
Here’s a recipe that can easily work both as a party-worthy appetizer or as a light supper, perhaps served with a salad dressed in a sharp, mustardy vinaigrette. The sweet caramelized onions, sharp goat cheese and pungent fresh basil work together beautifully, especially when supported by a crisp but chewy flatbread. Basil isn’t exactly in season right now but it’s pretty easy to find wherever you go.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Arugula, Apple & Chickpea Salad Wraps
This is has become one of our new favorite ways to pack a big salad for the times when we have to eat on the run. It’s compact, it’s tidy, and best of all, it’s super tasty. What is a tortilla if not an edible wrapper, after all?Look for the biggest tortillas you can find for this recipe. The bigger, the better. We also prefer flour tortillas as they tend to stay a little softer and not crack as easily.
Jan 29, 2020
Snack Recipe: Turkey Wraps with Honey Mustard Dip
There’s something so simplistic about a plain old turkey wrap dunked in homemade honey mustard. Still, these lowly sandwiches got me through college, and they even made an appearance at my recent engagement party. (What can I say, I know what I like.) For some reason, they never get old. I always have the ingredients for turkey wraps on hand when I need a quick lunch, but that’s not saying they haven’t pulled their weight as dinner.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Pork Belly Lettuce Wraps
A trip to the Korean market is always fun when I’m getting ready to entertain or simply preparing a weeknight meal. We love Korean food at our house, and pork belly lettuce wraps are always a fun and active way to serve delicious, flavorful food, no matter the occasion. These lettuce wraps celebrate the popular Korean dish Samgyeopsal Gui, which simply means grilled pork belly. Koreans traditionally eat Samgyeopsal while grilling the meat themselves at the table.

Recipe: Freezer-Friendly Spinach Feta Breakfast Wraps
Ah, autumn, when crisp mornings make me forget about chilled overnight oats and smoothies, and instead push hot breakfasts to the front of my mind. The only challenge is finding warm breakfasts that are still quick enough to make on busy fall mornings. Enter these freezer-friendly breakfast wraps. Following these tips for freezing burritos, I made vegetarian wraps filled with eggs, tomatoes, spinach, and feta that are ready to microwave in the morning.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: The Wrapped Breakfast Quesadilla
Don’t get me wrong — I’m a big fan of breakfast burritos, but I like the harder-to-find breakfast quesadilla even more. It just has that perfect ratio of crispy, browned tortilla, melty cheese, and eggs. Here’s one that you can have pre-made in the freezer, so any weekday morning can start with a quesadilla. While quesadillas are great hand-held foods, you do have to watch for dripping cheese and escaping filling when they’re cut into wedges.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Chicken Guacamole Burgers
This is unimaginably better than a burger merely topped with guacamole. In this love child of a burger and guacamole, the guac is mixed right in with the ground chicken, making its presence felt in every bite. Serve the burgers with shredded lettuce for a little crunch, a thin slice of ripe summer tomato, and a little smear of canola mayonnaise on the roll. Want to take it to the next level? Gild the lily by topping the burger with extra avocado slices.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Buffalo Cauliflower Lettuce Wraps
You’ve probably heard of cauliflower as a stand-in for steak or rice by now, but what about chicken? In this recipe, roasted cauliflower florets are doused in buffalo wing sauce and wrapped up in crunchy lettuce leaves for a vegetarian take on buffalo wings. After small cauliflower florets are roasted in a hot oven until crisp, they’re tossed with the traditional hot sauce-butter mixture.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers
Ditch the pre-made, frozen veggie burgers in favor of these smoky, spicy homemade ones — you won’t regret it. They’re a snap to make (even if you don’t have a food processor) and are absolutely packed with flavor. I’ve never been a meat fiend,so regular burgers just don’t provoke that much excitement from me. But since I started making bean burgers at university,they’ve become a staple.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Egg Wraps with Ham and Greens
I have a thing for pinwheel sandwiches; they’re just so pretty and such perfect finger foods. What if you could skip the tortilla or traditional wrap and use protein-loaded eggs instead? These wraps take the trifecta of breakfast foods — ham, eggs, and cheese — and turn them into portable bites that can work as breakfast or lunch.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Ranch Chicken Wraps
Need a dinner recipe that’s sure to get everyone to the table? We’re calling on a homemade ranch to get the job done. In 15 minutes you’ll have a fresh home-cooked meal so good you might even call it a miracle. What makes this recipe stand out from the crowd is that it bypasses the bottles of store-bought ranch dressing for a super-quick homemade version.

Recipe: Teriyaki Beef Burger
It only takes a few ingredients to give a classic burger a flavorful makeover, and this recipe proves just that. It relies on a simple slaw, store-bought teriyaki sauce, and thinly sliced jalapeño for a tangy twist on the all-American hamburger. A few smart steps take this from an average burger into a crave-worthy one. First, you’ll toss the cabbage with just a bit of mayonnaise — enough to coat the leaves and add a bit of richness, while keeping the slaw fresh and crisp.

Recipe: Tempeh Parmesan Sandwich
I have a soft spot for warm, toasty sandwiches. Just the simple act of heating something up suddenly makes lunch that much more exciting and satisfying, which is why one of my favorite hearty lunches is a classic chicken Parmesan sandwich. In this meat-free twist on the Italian-American favorite, a seasoned tempeh patty stands in for the usual breaded piece of chicken. Tempeh really is a blank canvas that you can season to your liking.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Freezer-Friendly Frittata Breakfast Sandwiches
What makes a perfect breakfast sandwich in my book? The right ratio of warm bread to tender egg, and always plenty of cheese. Bonus points if vegetables find their way inside too! Well, to make the perfect sandwich even more perfect, how about one that can be frozen so that a portable breakfast is ready to eat after just a few minutes in the microwave? Say good morning to the frittata breakfast sandwich.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Breakfast Burrito Egg Casserole
A good breakfast burrito is just as much about the fluffy eggs as it is the assortment of hearty fillings — I’m talking shredded potatoes, black beans, cheddar cheese, creamy avocado, and spicy salsa. This super-simple casserole combines all those components into a make-ahead egg dish that’s perfect for feeding the whole table. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: The best egg casseroles always start with a strong foundation.

Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Baked Black Bean and Avocado Burritos
Lean ground beef or turkey can stand in for the beans in these burritos — season it with salt and pepper and brown it in a skillet, and drain and cool slightly on a plate lined with paper towel before combining it with the chipotle sour cream. Also, pump up the nutrient power by adding sautéed chopped bell peppers, zucchini, or leftover cooked vegetables such as cauliflower. Make your own salsa in just minutes, if you prefer.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Freezer-Friendly Potato, Chorizo, and Cheesy Egg Burritos
These breakfast burritos were created with busy weekday mornings in mind, fulfilling the egg, cheese, meat, and carb foursome that’s guaranteed to deliver a hearty morning meal. Gone are the days when breakfast burritos were reserved for weekends. Most of us surely don’t have time to cook breakfast during the week, but reheating a frozen burrito in the oven while we shower and get ready for the day is a different story.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Ham, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Quesadilla
This is your classic ham, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich reimagined into a freezer-friendly quesadilla. Creamy scrambled eggs are piled between slices of deli ham, along with a layer of mild, nutty Gruyère and a swipe of Dijon, for a hot, make-ahead breakfast that will get you excited for the morning meal. To make these breakfast quesadillas freezer-friendly, we ditched the classic wedge cut for a technique that keeps all the ingredients nestled in a fully closed tortilla.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Scrambled Chickpea and Spinach Pitas
For a vegan breakfast sandwich that will power you through the morning, look to this pita pocket stuffed with a blend of spiced chickpeas and sautéed veggies. It’s prepared in advance, then stashed in the freezer, ready to be reheated in the oven while you buzz through your morning routine.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Bread Boats
Egg boats are the breakfast sandwich you wish you’ve been eating all along. This new take on the classic sausage, egg, and cheese mixes the trio into a custardy filling that’s baked together in a hollowed-out mini-baguette. Think of these boats as breakfast sandwich meets quiche. It’s a combination that delivers the best of both worlds: the convenience and portability of a sandwich, plus the creamy egg filling that makes quiche such a treat.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Egg, Sausage, and Cheese Bundt Breakfast Sandwich
To make a breakfast sandwich fit to feed a crowd, you’re going to need your Bundt cake pan. That’s right — the dome-shaped cake pan is the key to baking the bread, which gets cut in half to sandwich a sausage and cheese frittata. Better yet, this whole sandwich requires just five ingredients. Here’s how to do it. If you have a bundt cake pan hidden in the depths of your baking cabinet, now is the time to dig it out.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Ham, Brie, Marmalade and Arugula Pressed Sandwich
Although we’ve been in our current house here in Seattle over a year now, I’m still unpacking a few stray boxes from the basement. Last weekend, I unpacked an old, beloved friend: my panini press. And I got right to work preparing this heavenly new sandwich that marries tart marmalade, spicy arugula, creamy brie and little-bit-salty ham. I am not a big appliance gal.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Cuban Grilled Cheese Sandwich
With its combination of tender roasted pork, smoked ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard, a Cuban sandwich is pretty close to the ideal sandwich. It checks all the right boxes of salty, smoky, meaty, melty, and tangy. But what if you were to take a classic Cubano and cross it with a grilled cheese? We thought it sounded like a good idea, too, when we spotted it on the menu at chef Richard Hales’ Bird & Bone (the fact that it was served with waffle-cut fries didn’t hurt either).

Recipe: Crisp Tuna-Cabbage Salad
I love a little crunch in my tuna salad. I also am not the biggest fan of mayonnaise; I like a dab, but no more. Here’s a tuna salad in that spirit — fresh, crisp, and light, with more vegetables than tuna in the mix. I used Wild Planet light skipjack tuna for this salad. We’re big fans of Wild Planet’s responsibly sourced canned tuna around here. (Sara Kate mentioned them in her roundup of a past Fancy Food Show.

Recipe: Farmer’s Lunch Sandwich
We first became addicted to this sandwich when it appeared on the deli menu at City Feed and Supply, and quickly adapted it to our own kitchen! With grainy mustard, sharp cheese, and some crunchy apples, this is the perfect sandwich for a light summer meal outdoors. With a simple sandwich like this, using the best ingredients possible is key. Get yourself a really good cheddar – one that’s a bit crumbly and so sharp that you might not think of eating it on its own.

That’s when I turn to those classic cured meats like prosciutto and salami. Seriously yum.All deli meats are cured in the sense that they are cooked and can be eaten cold. But meats that have been cured using classic methods of drying, brining, and salting will win in any taste test.

No-Knead Bread Hack: Making a Sandwich Loaf Instead

Recipe: Slow Cooker Vegetarian Split Pea Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons
I grew up eating my grandmother’s split pea soup, and it’s one of the first things I learned to cook when I moved away from home. For this version, I omitted one harder-to-find ingredient so I can make it without a trip to a specialty store! To me, split pea soup tastes like home. However, when I tried to replicate our family recipe on my own, I always had trouble finding a ham bone. My local grocery store just wouldn’t sell me ham hocks or a ham bone.

5 Ways to Make a Hot, Crispy Sandwich Without a Panini Press
I used to have a little countertop grill, the jawed sort with removable plates (always thought of them as dentures) for waffles, sandwiches, and grilling. But it took up too much space, and I used it precisely never, finally purging it during a move. I still love hot sandwiches, though, and I’ve found that a panini press is fairly unnecessary. Here are 5 ways to get the sandwich without the gadget. Pan on the stove, with a lid for a press.
