Stove-Press Sandwich for B'fast
About 30 years ago my dad brought home a sandwich stove-press. It’s the kind of thing that you might use on a camping trip or at home for a novel grilled cheese pocket-type thang.
This morning I woke up and wasn’t sure what I wanted for breakfast, I had the day off and my default move was to have eggs, but I wasn’t feeling it today. So I gave my fridge the once-over and came up with these ingredients:
Half an onion
Leftover tube of pesto from a Hello Fresh meal
a Campari tomato
Yes!!! A stove-press sandwich! It’ll have stuff that I’d put into an omelette but without the eggs. Calorie-wise I had some whole wheat bread that was only 80 cal a slice so I was ready to go.
In a nutshell, here’s a video of what I did:
A Stove-Press Sandwich in 24 seconds!
Here’s a breakdown of the calories:
2 slices whole wheat bread: 160
.5 ounce salami (fine dice): 47
1 slice American Cheese: 104
1/2 Campari Tomato: 3
3 Tbsp chopped yellow onion: 4
1 Tbsp salted butter: 102 (oops!)
1 Tbsp Pesto: 84
IMO, not horrible for a meal that will probably last me through lunch to dinner (I got up at 9:30) AND I’m doing a lot of manual labor today working around the house.
Also, with a quick look around Amazon, I found this bad boy which would accommodate larger slices of bread (now my mind is wandering over to Reubens…not the painter, silly, the sandwich!). NOTE: I cannot attest to the quality of this device, but it looks real nice, shucks!
My friends, give this type a thing a shot, I love it and my kids loved them too (when I didn’t burn them) and it cool making your own hot pocket sandwich.
