Hi Everyone and Happy Saturday,
Today I have for you sandwich #6 from Emeril Lagasse’s Kicked-Up Sandwiches Cookbook. This was the first sandwich that I actually made from him and I thought it would be my favorite, but now I can’t decide. You know from my personal past recipes, how much I love Caprese sandwiches, so I had to create Emerils and you know what? I love it!! Yah, yah, I know your not surprised!!
This sandwich is made on Ciabatta bread, and to keep the calories low I took out the center of the bread and stuffed it with fresh tomatoes from my garden. Yum!! Emeril’s sandwich had a basil pesto type spread on it, but I kept it fresh by adding fresh basil from the garden. This sandwich is simply amazing! One of my all time favorites. I know why but I can’t get enough of tomato and basil together!
Hey, I forgot to mention, do you like my green plate? Little Jenny bought it for me for Mother’s Day and she has been waiting for me to use it. I thought this sandwich was perfect on it!! It’s one of my favorite shades of green!
Now, I can’t post the recipe to this sandwich, but I was googling on Emeril’s site and I found a fabulous recipe for Individual Baked Tomato Mozzarella Cheese and Fresh Basil Pies, and that recipe is very similar to this recipe. I love that for the pies he used puff pastry! I so have to make that!! It sounds wonderful!!

Emeril answered your question. You may post this on your blog.
QUESTION: What gives you the inspiration to come up with new and creative recipes? Jennifer http://www.peanutbutterandpeppers.com/
EMERIL: I take inspiration from just day to day life – many times it comes from what I see in farmer’s markets and grocery stores while shopping for dinner. I also get to travel a lot for work these days, and I always return from a trip with new ideas and inspirations.
