Hey everyone, I hope you are having a great day. Today, I am off from work and I finally have time to make my own lunch. Lately, I’ve been a regular at the local Japanese restaurant. Actually, that may be an understatement because when I call they answer by saying “Hi Travis, what would you like today?” So, as you can see I need to give calling their number a break. It’s bad when a restaurant knows you that well or doesn’t need to ask for your address for delivery. Anyway after breakfast this morning I began to plan for my lunch. I have to plan and entice the hungry monkeys in my tummy, or else I would be dialing “Tomo” again.
I decided to make a sandwich with: asparagus, mushrooms, and Applewood Smoked Sausage.
It was very easy and delicious. I started with 3 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan, then I added chopped asparagus and mushrooms. I sautéed the veggies with 1 teaspoon of black pepper, 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper and a dash of sea salt. After 2 mins I added the sausage. While the sausage cooked I toasted 2 slices of sourdough bread. Once the mushrooms were browned, and asparagus was tender, I spooned the mixture over each slice of bread.
In the future I will try adding some parmesean cheese, or smoked gouda. I think sweet corn would taste great too. Let me know what you think.
