|Soup and sandwich lunches are always a great combination.
Here's a recipe for Home made cheddar and broccoli soup with a Ham sandwich.
This is not a health-oriented meal, its more like comfort food. The portions are American sized too.
Cheddar Cheese and Broccoli Soup
6 ozs. Cheddar cheese, shredded
2 ozs. cream cheese
3 cups milk
4 tbsp. generic dry coffee creamer
6 ozs. Broccoli stems
2 oz. Broccoli florets
salt & pepper
Place the broccoli stems and florets in a food processor and pulse-shred it.
Place 2 cups of the milk into a medium sized pot with burner on medium-high. When the milk has almost (but not quite) boiled, Stir in the dry coffee creamer. Add the cheeses. Stir until the cheeses have melted completely into the soup. With remaining cup of cold milk, stir in about 3/4 tbsp. cornstarch. Add to the soup. Stir well, add broccoli and heat through.
If it's still not thick enough, add more cornstarch that has first been added to a little bit of cold milk..Salt and pepper to taste. Serves 2
At my house, all of the bread we eat is home made. I use a Breadman Ultimate Plus.
(Read more about making your own bread in the forum) So recipes follows as such:
2 slices home made French Sandwich Bread
10 to 12 ozs. roughly cut Ham
2 sprigs watercress (can also use fresh cracked black pepper as substitute)
Home made Mayonnaise
1 medium tomato, sliced
1 or 2 slices Swiss Cheese
2 tbsp.olive or canola oil
In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp oil. When it's almost smoking, quickly dip one slice of bread into oil on both sides. Let it rest in pan until one side toasts, then toast the other. Repeat until all bread has been toasted in this fashion. Now place the ham into same skillet, trying to place evenly and level. Heat it through. Now lightly place the swiss on top, spreading evenly over all the ham. Cover tightly and turn off burner. Slice the tomato, lay out the bread and build your sandwiches. Watercress has a crisp, peppery flavor, so I like to add. If you don;t have, use black pepper for a near flavor. Divide the meat in half for each sandwich.
Cut in half and serve 1 half to each person with the soup.
*When using your own home made bread, the slices are a little thicker and the loaf is usually more weighty. Dividing a slice to each then, will still fill you up :)
