French Bread Pizza

Another fast week night meal!  Can you tell that fast meals have sort of been my thing lately?  This is a new go to for me.  I know that I say that a lot but this is true.  These are new to Kyle and I both and we really enjoyed them.  There are so many different combination's, just like any pizza and that is what makes this meal even better.


French rolls (sliced in half)
Pizza sauce (I keep a bottle of pizza sauce in the fridge now just in case I don't have time to make homemade sauce, don't judge!)
Cheese (any kind would do but I always use my Mexican bleed which is American and Jack)
Toppings (pepperoni was used this time, obviously)


1.  Slice the french roll in 1/2.
2.  Spread pizza sauce over each side of the french roll.
3.  Sprinkle with cheese.
4.  Add toppings.
5.  Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees  for 10(ish) minutes. 

We don't have kiddos but I can only imagine how much they would love these little gems.

Smoked Turkey, Havarti and Dijon Panini

A good panini is hard to pass up, especially when it is being served with pipping hot soup.  YUM!  Panini's and soup are one of my go to meals on the week nights.  They can be fancy yet simple all at the same time. The other great thing is that there are so many wonderful combination's of panini's to make.  I am not a fancy panini maker by any means.  I bust out the ol' George Foreman and let that bad boy go to work. Does the trick every time! =)

Kyle is NOT a fan of cold sandwiches at all so when I make sandwiches for him they are always panini's.  I on the other hand LOVE cold sandwiches.  In fact, I ate two just today. 



Bread (In this actual picture it is Asiago bread from Panera.)
Dijon Mustard
Smoked Turkey
Havarti Cheese

There is no need for directions, or at least I don't think there is.  Slap everything together and grill! Easy enough. 

(Sorry for the steam in the picture.)

Here are some other amazing combination's that are definitely worth trying...

Sun dried tomato spread, fresh mozzarella , basil leaves
Smoked turkey, Gouda, crisp apples
Nutella and strawberries (Dessert)
Prosciutto, lemon-mayonnaise, arugula, and fresh tomatoes on ciabatta. (Giada's recipe)
Cheese (any), bacon, tomato

I could go on and on.  Happy Panini Making!!

Welcome to Nashville!

Sorry for the long hiatus!  Between the holidays and moving poor blogging just got pushed to the side.  This next coming week we will be busy busy unpacking and making Nashville home.  So if anyone knows of any amazing places that I must try in Nashville...let me know!  When it comes to food, we love trying new things!
