Way back near the end of March, we attempted the grilled mushroom sub with smoky pancetta, melted cheese and pears. My father is one of those people who thinks sandwiches don’t constitute a proper meal, so I was a bit reluctant to make this ginormous sub. We decided to make it for lunch so he couldn’t kick up too much of a fuss.
This is a ciabbata based sub with a simple, refreshing salad. I was a bit weirded out by putting pears on a sandwich but whatever, I figured Jamie knows what he’s doing. And he does because it’s actually delicious. We have some amazing (and gigantic) pears on offer here in WA and this recipe really showcased them. I’m not generally a fan of walnuts (in the salad) or mushrooms (in the sandwich) either, but I had no problems with either in this combo. Overall, it was a very successful meal AND we got it done in 15 minutes. Didn’t think we’d ever actually manage that!
It got 4.3 Grumpy Dads out of 5 – yes, the father has decided to start working in decimal points because we’re giving him such variety to choose from. Apparently.
