Ideas for soft pretzel sandwiches
- Tonyjlive Jul 30, 2007 04:33 PM
Back in the day our neighborhood pool sold "ultimate pretzels". They were a sandwich made up of ham and cheese with some mustard in between a soft pretzel that had been split in half to act as the bread. In Philly, the pretzels are delicious and fresh, most are ladder shaped, or like a skinny 8. I was trying to come up with some ideas of how to re-create this treat for a fantasy football party I'm having soon. One of my first ideas was to substitute the ham for prosciutto and the regular old cheese for some sharp provolone with some spicy mustard. I was curious what other combinations people could come up with. Any thoughts?
Tonyjlive are you able to take a photo of these sandwiches? Please I am really wanting to try these.
Are you making the pretzels/ and would you share your recipe please?
We are also talking of a similar party, and I love this idea and see how it would appeal to the group of guests. I found a wonderful site that sells picks for sandwiches and other things and I see this as really good use for them.
Please post a photo?
Don't forget the vegetarians! I think one with roasted red peppers, provolone, grilled portabello, or eggplant with augula would be lovely. And the roast beef with horseradish another winner.
I think of great imported German beers with these as well and some warm German potato salad.Thanks for starting this thread, great ideas!
Black Forest ham and sharp cheddar cheese, freshly sliced red plump tomatoes and crisp lettuce, hot hearty mustard... serve w/ german fried potatoes.
Crab Filling... like a Crab Po' Boy
Turkey, Swiss, Honey Dijon
Turkey, Roast Beef, Provolone, Tomato, Lettuce, Onion, Spiced Aioli
Kielbasa or Andouille, Sliced Harboiled Egg or Cooked/Scrambled Egg, Cajun Seasoning, Mozzarella (you might even panini press this one)
Cream cheese with chives, smoked salmon, capers, tomato, red onion and lemon slice....
Poppy seeds on the pretzels. little egg white sprinkle seeds, reheat.
One can go a little wild with these things!
Now those are some ideas we've compiled...I expect to have the party the 18th of August, I'll try to post a picture then and if I do some "practicing" I'll do it before then. In the mean time, the more ideas the merrier.
Smoked polish sausage with mustard and caramelized onions...I've made this before with pretzel bread and I'm drooling just thinking of it!
