Ham and Swiss Ciabatta


Thanks Kat for the suggestion!


Deli Ham
Sliced Swiss Cheese
Ciabatta Bread
Horseradish Sauce (find it in the deli)
Dijon Mustard


Take your bread and open them up. Place ham and cheese on the bottom slice of the bread. Wrap with aluminum foil. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and aluminum foil. Top with 1-2 slices bacon, lettuce and tomato. Take horseradish sauce and mix in mustard in equal parts. Spread on roll. Very yummy!

Antipasto Submarine Sandwich

Hogie, Sub, Submarine whatever you call it – this is amazing! A friend told me about this, so it’s not an original recipe from me or my family, but I am making an exception and am going to share it because you won’t believe it!


Sub rolls
Anitpasto salad


Go to your deli at the grocery. Buy antipasto salad. You know, it has meats, cheeses, olives and pickled veggies. Where I live Publix does not carry it with meats and cheeses. But Win-dixie does. So look around. Now go to the bakery in the grocery store and buy sub rolls. Slice the sub rolls in 1/2 with the middle still attached. Put on the antipasto salad and broil until the cheese is melted and the roll toasty! That’s it! WOW you are going to love me when you are done eating! Enjoy!

  • 2 Boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 8 Slices precooked bacon
  • 2 C Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Barbeque sauce
  • Lettuce – I like romaine
  • 4 Kaiser rolls
  • Butter
  • Oil – I like coconut oil to pan fry with – it’s so good for you. Makes it a healthier meal.
  • Panko crumbs or bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs


Take 2 breasts and slice them in half so that they are thinner. Place in a one gallon zip lock bag. Make sure to get out the air and seal the bag. Pound flat with a meat tenderizer. Use the smooth side so you don’t puncture the bag.
Pour oil into frying pan to cover the bottom. Have heat on medium. Take eggs and mix them up in a bowl. Take panko crumbs and pour onto a plate. Take chicken and dip into egg mixture and then into the crumbs. Stick the crumbs onto both sides. Place into hot frying pan and oil. Brown on both sides. Put cheese onto top of each breast, put 1/4 tsp of water into frying pan cover with lid to melt cheese.
Remove from frying pan onto a plate covered with paper towels. Take kaiser rolls, cut in half, butter both cut sides. Place butter side down into frying pan. Do not put into the oil. Grill the rolls until toasty.
Assemble sandwich. Kaiser roll on bottom, chicken, cheese, bacon, barbeque sauce, lettuce and kaiser roll on top.

For those that prefer to avoid carbs, put the chicken and toppings on a bed of lettuce – still yummy!


Cheesy Chili with Pasta

  • My Chili Recipe
  • Spaghetti Noodles (or any noodle you have on hand)
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese


Try this sometime. It’s so easy and really makes such a nice meal. Use my chili recipe or chili from a can. Make spaghetti noodles. Put them on a plate, Put chili on top of noodles and add shredded cheese. This is also a great way to serve any leftover chili in a different way for a later night. Chili is also great to freeze the extras and then just thaw them out whenever you need an easy dinner!
