Cajun Bob's Jambalaya Panini: Not Your Average Sandwich

Pin It

While I was making my famous Jambalaya the other night, I had another crazy idea for a sandwich (these are becoming quite common). Today, I made that crazy idea for a sandwich a reality by firing up my panini press and throwing my leftover but still very delicious Jambalaya on a Ciabatta roll. I made sure to put some of the juice from the Jambalaya on the sandwich and pressed it on the hot panini grill for about 10 minutes. What was the result?

The sandwich was very meaty to say the least. It also made it seem that I just broke out a piece of crunchy bread and just started dipping it in a Jambalaya. The only difference obiviously was that Jambalaya was into between two pieces of that bread. Kind of makes me think of Quizno's roast beef sandwich, the one that comes with the dipping sauce for extra taste. Needless to say, it was a very interesting taste.

If your brave enough to make this panini, I would suggest a Ciabatta roll over any other type of bread because the Ciabatta bread is thick enough to hold the Jambalaya juices without the sandwich becoming a soggy mess. Also, I know what your thinking, Cajun Bob? Where did he get that name? I thought it sounded kind of fun so there you have it Cajun Bob's Jambalaya Panini.

You didn't think I'd leave you without the Jambalaya recipe did you? No, my awesome readers get all my recipes so if you click on over to one of my many food blogs at: Off The Menu's Famous Jambalaya it will take you straight to it... and yes, it's so mouth watering good that it deserves to be called famous so it's highly recommended that you try it but please see the verdict for this sandwich creation.

Verdict: Jambalaya by itself without being sandwiched by 2 pieces of bread should be standard and not this. Not recommended!

Smoked Sausage Wraps

Pin It

Maybe you're a fan of hot dogs, maybe you aren't but it doesn't matter what you tell me they are made of and how bad they are for you, I'll love them because they taste good. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm very picky about my particular dog because I'm not a fan of the ones that have one taste and that's of pure fat... which is most hot dogs. Now give me a smoked sausage instead and I'm sold.

Sold is exactly what I am on smoked sausage wrapped in a tortilla. I'm not sure, how well known this idea is or not.. I know I'm not the only one that's thought of it. In the case that you don't know about this little trick for eating smoked sausage, I'm glad I'm here to steer you in the right direction.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup S'mores

Pin It

Call me crazy but I'm not a big s'mores fan. However while shopping at the store the other day some marshmallows caught my eye that are specially made for that forever summer time favorite of s'more making. As soon as I saw them, an idea occurred to me, why not do a variation of a s'more using different ingredients. That's how I found myself in the candy aisle looking for something that was chocolate but maybe a little different than a typical Hershey's bar which is the typical s'mores choice. Then I saw them, those delicious and addicting Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and I knew I had what I was looking for.

Southwestern Brisket Taquitos

Pin It

Brisket Taco's have always been a favorite of mine at the finer end Mexican food restaurants. Today, I decided that instead of going out and spending money, I would try them at home but with something that would make them more special and ultimately make them original. The slight detour I took was well worth it in the end because these were a huge hit in my household. Please read on and see what I did to make these delicious to the last bite.
