Open face veggie sandwiches with goat cheese (or fontina) and sundried tomato aioli

An open faced sandwich is a great way to avoid all that bread that we don't really need. So take the top off (not your top of coarse) and enjoy the more of the flavors within.

Ciabatta is an Italian white bread made from wheat flour, water, salt, olive oil and yeast. It was created in 1982 so it hasn't been around that long but it has quickly become a favorite. It has a slightly chewy texture that will hold up well for a sandwich with a lot of ingredients.

    Manchego, Membrillo and Chorizo Grilled Sandwiches


    These Spanish Tapas have 3 traditional Spanish ingredients,each delicious on their own but when paired together the result is 3 times as good. Manchego cheese, from sheep's milk is made in the La Mancha region of Spain. When aged for 3 months it's fruity with a slight tangy note, if aged longer it becomes more sweet. Membrillo is quince paste. Quince is a hard fruit that looks like a cross between an apple and a pear. They aren't eaten raw but cooked until wonderfully sweet. And last but not least is chorizo, a highly seasoned ground pork sausage flavored with garlic, chili powder and other spices. Use the fresh Mexican chorizo for this recipe. The Spanish version uses smoked pork so it doesn't grill as well.
