Taste & Tell: Easy Sliders!
I'm sure you all are wondering if this blog is really a lifestlye blog or turning into a foodie blog with all my recent "Taste & Tell" posts, HOWEVER, I assure you it is not. Learning how foods make my inner being/mood/happiness/feelings in general has really taught me the importance of the matter. Observing over reading has always been the best learning strategy for me. SO that being said, toss me a thousand cook books..& while I do enjoy the inspiration and savory concoctions filling each page, I will rarely be able to create what they present. For me it is hands on, trying new recipes while adding different ingredients to older recipes..watching someone cook beside me as I take it all in...these tactics instill a better chef in myself. As Julia Child puts it in her book "My Life in France"
“...no one is born a great cook, one learns by doing.”
On to these sliders...they have a difficulty level for a 3 year old (minus the veggies sauteed). So I usually grab a pack of the king Hawaiian rolls, turkey/ham/chicken (whichever meat you prefer or better yet combo that sucker!), your cheese of choice and veggies including zucchini, tomatoes, squash...really anything will do! I prepare the sandwiches while sauteing the veggies in a little olive oil and some seasoning. Once prepared let veggies cool down just a minute or two and toss them on top of the ham and cheese. Genius right!? Okay maybe not, but at least it gives sliders a little more nutrition and flavor. The beauty of sliders too is that they are easy to make a larger batch and snag them throughout the day or week. For all the mamas out there these are great after school snacks to keep the hangry level down until din din (we all know the witching hour!).
--Lastly opt to add a toothpick or something to keep the sandwich nicely together and not falling all over the place ha! Enjoy!
