Salsa Turkey Sandwich

Broiled Pear and Swiss Cheese Sandwich

6 sl sandwich bread
6 sl swiss cheese (1 oz. each)
2 md pears -- pared, cored &
1 tb sugar
1/2 t cinnamon

Toast bread. Place a cheese slice on each piece of toast. Arrange sliced
pears on cheese. Mix sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle on pears. Broil 10
minutes or until lightly browned. Serve hot.

Eggplant Sandwiches

2 (1 Lb.) eggplants, trimmed & cut into 1/4" slices
1 Tablespoon kosher salt
Marinara sauce:
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 Small garlic cloves, slightly flattened
2 Cans Plum tomatoes (35 oz. ea.)
1/4 Teaspoon salt
1/4 Teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup basil leaves, finely julienned
2 1/2 cups (+/-) olive oil
1 cup basil leaves, chopped
1/2 cup roasted red peppers, drained & chopped
10 anchovies, rinsed, dried & minced
2 tablespoons capers, drained & chopped
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
8 oz. mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
1/2 cup flour
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups Italian bread crumb, soft
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Sprinkle the eggplant with the coarse salt. Place the slices in a colander
set over a bowl or in the sink and let the eggplant drain for 1 hr.

Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. In a large skillet over med. heat, combine
the 1 T. olive oil & garlic and cook til the garlic is very aromatic but
not browned. Stir in the tomatoes, 1/4 t. of pepper, & 1/4 t. salt.
Reduce heat to med. low & cook about 20 min. til liquid is reduced and the
mixture is thickened. Remove the skillet from heat and let sauce cool to
room temp. Remove & discard the garlic. Just before serving, reheat the
sauce and stir in the julienned basil leaves.

Preheat the oven to 375. Pat eggplant slices dry. Brush both sides of
each slice with some olive oil. Place the eggplant slices in a single
layer on 2 large baking sheets. Bake about 18 min. or til the slices are
tender. Let the eggplant slices cool.

Meanwhile, prepare the filling. In a small bowl, combine the chopped
basil leaves, red peppers, anchovies, capers, and 1/2 t. black pepper.
Stir until well mixed. Spoon some of the filling onto half of the
eggplant slices and top with cheese, trimming cheese to fit. Place a
plain eggplant slice on top of each filled slice, trying to keep the
slices the same size.
Press slices together firmly to set the sandwich.

(You can refrigerate these at this point for later frying. Put your feet
up and have a cup of coffee.)

Place the flour in 1 pie plate and the eggs in another. In a med. bowl,
stir together the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese til well mixed.

In a large cast-iron skillet, heat 1/2" olive oil to 375. Preheat the
oven to 300. One at a time, dip the eggplant sandwiches in the flour
until completely coated, shaking off the excess flour. Then dip
sandwiches into the egg, letting excess drain off. Finally, dip
sandwiches in bread crumb mixture until completely coated, shaking off the
excess crumbs. Fry the sandwiches, a few at a time, in the hot olive oil,
about 1 1/2 - 2 min. on each side or until the sandwiches are golden. Add
more olive oil as needed. With tongs, transfer the cooded sandwiches to a
jelly-roll pan lined with paper towels. Keep the cooked sandwiches warm
in the oven while frying the remaining sandwiches. Serve the eggplant
sandwiches warm or at room temp. with the Marinara Sauce.

French Toasted Tuna Sandwiches

9 1/4 oz canned tuna
1/4 c celery -- finely chopped
1/4 c onion -- finely chopped
1/4 c sweet pickle relish
1/4 c salad dressing (mayonnaise)
12 sl bread -- dry
2 eggs -- beaten
1/3 c milk
1/2 t vanilla
2 tb oil or fat (approximately)

Drain and flake tuna. Mix with celery, onion, relish, and salad dressing.
Spread tuna mixture on 6 slices of bread; top with remaining slices. Mix
eggs, milk, and vanilla. Dip sandwiches into egg mixture to coat each
side. Brown in fat on a hot griddle or in a frypan, about 3 to 4 minutes
on each side.

Salsa Turkey Sandwich

2 pieces toast
1 piece lettuce
2 slices turkey (deli style)

While the bread is toasting, put the turkey, covered in salsa and
topped with cheese in the microwave until the cheese melts. Spread
the mayo on one slice, honey on the other, then add the lettuce.
Close the sandwich and cut on the diagonal.
