Here’s a contender for your Super Bowl party. Greek Lamb Sliders! We make a lemon/herb feta spread, a Greek Salad Relish and char some lamb burgers and sandwich it a lllll together to make a cute little slider.  That means you can totally have two…or three…

Smoked Salmon Ramen

Smoked Salmon Ramen- a quick way to fancy up packaged ramen!  Check out more at Shutterbean.com

I find the most food inspiration when someone else cooks for me. That’s why I love going to my friend Leslie’s house.  She’s beyond confident in the kitchen and she always comes up with such amazing combinations out of the most modest ingredients. It feels like a real treat; she makes me always feel welcome.  She also introduced me to the hot smoked sockeye salmon from Trader Joe’s and I’m forever grateful.

She made me smoked salmon ramen back in December and I was instantly hooked. It takes a tiny bit of finesse to get the egg just right but on my second attempt, it was absolute perfection.

Just a few additions can really enhance a package of ramen. Spinach, smoked salmon, a little bit of sea kelp seasoning (or furikake if you have it) and a runny egg makes for a wonderfully quick meal– perfect for Mondays! You’re just three minutes away from deliciousness.  Promise me you’ll add sriracha?

Hard-Boiled Egg + Crispy Bacon Bits

Hard Boiled Egg + Crispy Bacon Bits //  shutterbean

I had a few leftovers when I was making that epic Cobb Salad Sandwich recipe, so I turned them into a snack! Hard-boiled Egg with Crispy Bacon Bits makes a really great breakfast or afternoon pick-me-up. I don’t know about you, but if I don’t get enough protein during the day I’m not pleasant to be around. This little combination comes in handy. You could add some hot sauce for flare or maybe a little flavored salts?

Sometimes you want a salad…and sometimes you want a sandwich and sometimes you WANT them both.


Cobb Salad Sandwich // shutterbean

I bought blue cheese dressing recently. It’s been awhile since I had it. I stopped eating it when I was pregnant with Cooper and it took me years to start liking it again. The mind is such a weird thing, isn’t it?  It’s back in my world again and I had to figure out what to do with a jar besides eat salad every night. So, I put it on a sandwich. This here is the sandwich!

Cobb Salad Sandwich // shutterbean

We take the main ingredients of a Cobb salad (bacon, chicken, blue cheese, egg, tomato, lettuce, onion & avocado) and we consolidate and sandwich them between two beautiful crunchy/doughy pieces of toast.  It’s a sandwich, it’s a salad it’s a sandwich salad of my dreams!  I’ll have you know that we demolished ours in record timing.
