A Day-After-Easter Sandwich

ChiliDude | Mar 28, 200502:13 PM

My wife and I had Easter dinner at the home of our daughter's mother-in-law in South Philly. It was an Italian affair with a primo course of pasta (stuffed shells and gnocchi) and meats (Italian sausage, pork, beef and braciole) cooked in tomato 'gravy' and a secondo course of spiral cut ham and sweet potatoes. Of course, there was a salad and lots of finger food. Both red and white wines freely flowed. Lots of desserts including two ricotta pies baked by two different people. There were lots of leftovers because there was enough food to feed a small army (I did say this was an Italian affair).

Here's the list of ingredients for the sandwich.

1) 2 slices of good rye bread with caraway seeds.
2) A slather of mayonnaise on one side of one slice of bread.
3) A spread of my homemade condiment consisting of finely diced onion and celery, chopped peperoncini, chopped pimento-stuffed green olives and chopped capers held in place by the mayo.
4) A layer of sliced hard-boiled Easter egg.
5) A layer of spiral-cut ham.
6) A layer of provolone cheese.

Goes down well with a beverage of your choice.

Buon Appetito!
