Cuban Sandwich or Hot Ham

I saw a recipe for a Cuban sandwich the other day and it looked

so good!  I thought I’ve just got to make one of those,

so one day while home on lunch I threw

this together.  It was quite tasty and I will be

making this again soon.


As usual, there is a twist.  My mom always laughed at me ’cause if

I don’t have it, I’ll substitute something for it!  🙂

This sandwich is made using my low carb biscuit for the bread

and unfortunately I had no pork roast, so maybe I should

just call this a Hot Ham Sandwich?!


I really didn’t use a recipe (but I will give you a link at the end)

and used more of a process, so I will overwhelm you

with pics and how I did made it.

I thought the sandwich photographed nicely and I couldn’t

chose just one picture to share, so that’s why I’ve posted

several different angles here.


I made up my biscuit dough and actually fried it up like a pancake.

It made 2 good size pancakes or fried bread.

I sliced one of the “pancakes”  into and flipped it over and spread

mayo on both “crusts” of the bread.  I then layered

sliced ham, cheese, and pickles, sprinkled with sea salt and

smokehouse pepper and assembled the sandwich.  I proceeded to

spread with butter and toast on both sides since I don’t own

a sandwich press.  Yummo!


It was great as a quick lunch.  Also, this sandwich would make a

great party appetizer when cut into smaller pieces

or served along with soup would be dinner!

Puffy eyes and feet means back to Low Carb!

I regret to say that I don’t work Weight Watchers very well. 

.

I was doing good at first, then Thanksgiving happened and a few days later I quit counting my points.

Weight Watchers is hard to do if you don’t count your points, or at least it is for me.

.

 

.

So I’m back to what I know will get rid of those puffy eyes, hands, and feet.  Low Carb it is!

While trying to decide what to have for lunch today, I came across some great low carb articles/sites.

.

 

I’ve decided to list a few here.   Enjoy…  and happy Low Carbing!

Grilled Burgers and Spicy Fries

My Grillmaster lights the grill once again! 

It was a weeknight and I was wanting a simple supper, something that didn’t involve messing up a bunch of mixing bowls, pots and pans, and dinner plates.  I didn’t feel like the clean-up. 

So I picked up some burgers, already pre-formed!  I was looking for easy, too.   I glanced at the prices of the french fries in the freezer section and remembered the half bag of whole potatoes I had at home just waiting to be turned into delicious homemade fries.

As I went through my mental list at the grocery, I picked up some buns, a Vidalia onion, some iceburg lettuce (I know), and some hamburger sliced dill pickles, our favorite. 

When we arrived home, my Grillmaster set about preparing the grill…charcoal only for him.   I prepared the condiments for the burgers and my youngest daughter scrubbed and helped slice the potatoes for the fries.

What a meal!  I took my mom (who is fighting cancer, on a bunch of meds, and nothing tastes good) a burger.  She ate half of it and declared it was the tenderest grilled burger she’d ever had.

I know the cheese is not melted.  Poor fellow, I forgot to give it to him and it never entered his mind to put some cheese on the burgers those last few seconds on the grill.  So when he brought them in, I took a few of the hottest ones and threw some cheese on them.

TIP: When we light the grill, we usually do enough meat and veggies for more than one meal.  This night we grilled a huge pack of barbequed chicken legs and some deer tenderloin wrapped with bacon to have another time.  Leftover grilled goodies make for a quick and easy lunch!
