Recipe of the day:
The Meltie (Melty?)
3 pieces sandwich bread, pref. sourdough
4 pieces sliced ham or turkey
2 pieces sliced cheese, pref. cheddar or monterey jack
1 TBSP mayo (optional)
1 slice tomato
Best made in a toaster oven. Conventional toaster/microwave combo yields similar but imperfect results.
If using a toaster oven, assemble sandwich as follows:
Bread,Mayo, Meat, Cheese, Bread, Meat, Cheese, Tomato, Mayo, Bread.
Pop the whole thing in the microwave for 15-20 seconds, until cheese is slightly melted.
Transfer to toaster oven and commence crisping.
When brown, slice and eat.
If no toaster oven, you must toast each piece of bread, assemble sandwich, and then microwave. Beware the mushinating abilities of the average microwave.
