Mushroom Stew on Butterfried Toast / Soppstuing på Smørstekt Toast

A delicious snack recipe found in “Lær Mer om Sopp” (Learn More
About Mushrooms ) published by BAMA gruppen in 1982

Mushroom Stew on Butterfried Toast / Soppstuing på Smørstekt Toast

Edible mushrooms are the fleshy and edible fruit bodies of several species of macrofungi (fungi which bear fruiting structures that are large enough to be seen with the naked eye). They can appear either below ground (hypogeous) or above ground (epigeous) where they may be picked by hand. Edibility may be defined by criteria that include absence of poisonous effects on humans and desirable taste and aroma.

Edible mushrooms are consumed for their nutritional value and they are occasionally consumed for their supposed medicinal value. Mushrooms consumed by those practicing folk medicine are known as medicinal mushrooms. While hallucinogenic mushrooms (e.g. psilocybin mushrooms) are occasionally consumed for recreational or religious purposes, they can produce severe nausea and disorientation, and are therefore not commonly considered edible mushrooms.

Cambridge Market Sandwich / Sandwich Fra Cambridge Markedet

How many times have you eaten blue cheese and apples and in how many combinations and yet never thought of putting them together in a sandwich. In Cambridge you can get them  wrapped in brown paper, and eat them on a bench outside of King’s College while the choir practiced for an upcoming concert and the students rushed around in their robes.

Mediterranean Stuffed Layered Picnic Loaves / Søreuropeiske Fylte Lagdelte Piknikbrød

A great picnic recipe found on goodtoknow.co.uk
Mediterranean stuffed layered picnic loaves_goodtoknow_post

These Mediterranean stuffed layered loaves are perfect to bring along to a summer picnic – full of mozzarella and tasty, juicy veg, it’s a really great change from the usual cheese sandwiches. Not only does it taste delicious, it also looks really impressive too, as you can see all the colours from the different veg and mozzarella in all the layers when you cut through.

Make sure you take the time to chill the sandwiches in the fridge for a few hours, as the recipe recommends, because this way the juices from the grilled veg will have time to soak into the bread, not only keeping it extra moist but also adding a really fab flavour to it. This Mediterranean layered sandwich is a great grown-up choice for a picnic, and ideal for sharing with friends! Make the night before so all you need to do is grab them from the fridge before you leave!

Bacon Butty / Bacon Sandwich

A national treasure of a recipe found on picturebritain.com309_bacon butty_post

The girl who runs PictureBritain writes: As unappetizing as it might sound to the uninitiated, the bacon butty is truly a national treasure. In a 2012 survey of the 50 things Britons love most about Britain, this piece of culinary tradition ranked #1 (fish and chips and the Queen trailed behind 309_bacon butty3at #9 and #15, respectively). Clearly, this is something that every Britophile should pay attention to.

A bacon butty is technically a sandwich, but it is variously known as a bacon sarnie, rasher sandwich, bacon sanger, and piece ‘n bacon – it all depends on where you come from. Basically, a bacon butty is a slab of bacon, sometimes topped with a condiment, smashed between two pieces of bread. But that’s just the basic makeup, the details of this dish are liable to a thousand interpretations, and are the source of heated debate (nearly to church-schism proportions).

Remember: While the bacon butty may look like plebeian fare, it was supposedly part of Prince Harry’s late night breakfast after the Royal Wedding celebrations.

I find the bacon butties far from both unappetizing and plebeian fare. It is in my eyes superb comfort food and one of the British food traditions that has followed me ever since I went there for the first time as a young man. It is the perfect remedy for any of all the small misfortunes in life.

Got caught out in the rain: bacon butties. Got a cold: bacon butties. Had a row with your girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband: bacon butties. Forgot to watch your favourite TV show: bacon butties. Unexpected bills: bacon butties. The list goes on and on, never get caught without some rashes of bacon in the fridge, they will come in handy when life treat you unfair – Ted

The Monte Cristo Sandwich / Monte Cristo Sandwichen

A classic hot sandwich recipe from LostRecipesFound186_monte cristo sandwich_post

Ham, turkey and melted cheese on egg-dipped, butter-crisped white bread, the Monte Cristo sandwich made waitressing at the local Denny’s in that godawful brown polyester uniform, almost worth it. Perhaps because the fried bread’s a lot like French toast, “The Encyclopedia of Guilty Pleasures” puts the Monte Cristo in that “strange netherworld between breakfast and lunch,” making it perfect for Hobbit “elevensies.”

Most basically an Americanized Croque Monsieur, the Monte Cristo is purported to have first appeared under that menu moniker in 1950s 186_monte cristo sandwich2California. Disney started serving it in 1966 at its Blue Bayou and Tahitian Terrace restaurants on New Orleans Square in Disneyworld, and chain-restaurants popularized it ever after. Lost Recipes Found’s triple-decker version riffs on a Los Angeles recipe that Gourmet magazine ran in 1968, in response to a reader request.

Since The Monte Cristo Sandwich is mentioned in “The Encyclopedia of Guilty Pleasures” that was my book suggestion yesterday I found it just right for today’s second recipe post – Ted
