Today I am hanging out on the streets of Philly and nothing could be better than a Philly Cheesesteak! This recipe is my homage to the Philly Cheese Steak. Of course, steak is a luxurious sandwich meat, but sometimes a splurge is fun. The oregano and basil add a clean, fresh taste and the corn mayonnaise offers just a smidge of sweetness and crunch. Photo by Paul Brissman.


Fried Fish Baguette

February is Black History Month, and this Fried Fish Baguette is the perfect dish to have in celebration. This recipe is inspired by the markets of Zambia, where you can buy an entire fish already fried. I’ve taken the flavor of that market fish and put it in a sandwich, making it a simple and delicious meal that speaks to traditional Southern cuisine, too. I’ve added an additional twist by adding a chili mayonnaise that perfectly offsets the black bass that I use here, and harissa, a North African chili paste. You can buy harissa in stores, but I’ve also provided a recipe for harissa below.

This recipe is from The Soul of a New Cuisine.

Guest mentor Roy Choi came in for the fourth episode of The Taste and showed our teams a thing or two about creating great street food. To help #TeamMarcus get in the zone, I shared with them my Shrimp Faux-lafel Sandwich. It’s a twist on the classic chickpea falafel, packed in a pita alongside tabouleh and a refreshingly light lime yogurt sauce, making it a fantastic meal to-go.

La Mitraillette (Belgian Machine Gun) Sandwich Recipe

La Mitraillette

Powerful in name and taste, La Mitraillette (Belgian Machine Gun) Sandwich is one fully loaded burger topped with ketchup, caramelized onions and…French fries? Clearly this is something that hails from Belgium.

This recipe for La Mitraillette comes from Petit Abeille, the Yves Jadot-owned Belgian cafés in New York, and home to American classics with a decidedly French and Belgian twist such as Croque Monsieur (Belgian ham and cheese sandwich with béchamel) and Vol au Vent (chicken pot pie). And now La Mitraillette.

This open-faced sandwich is a great meal. Splurge on a great loaf of whole-grain bread and top each slice with a piece of grilled salmon. I love the creamy flavors of avocado in contrast with the crunchy romaine and grilled onion. Weekday tip: make a few extra hard-boiled eggs to keep for snacks during the rest of the week.

Grilled Goat Cheese Sandwiches Recipe

By Joanne Bruno | May 14, 2012

grilled goat cheese sandwich

Most of the time when a craving hits, it’s for two things: carbs and cheese. Usually together.

And while I generally try to convince myself that even though I may think I want mac and cheese all day every day, what I really want is an apple or a salad or both….sometimes I just have to give in. On those days, I make grilled cheese.

Not only is it a pretty portion controlled way to get your carb/cheese fix, but it can also be dolled-up to give it a bit more “oomph” factor.  These grilled goat cheese sandwiches are the perfect example of this. Read More
