A Parmesan-mustard crowned king among steak sandwiches…

Howdy folks and welcome to this absolute & undeniable love in to the humble steak sandwich. This is one those recipes that I didn’t even know I was missing until I found it, made it, loved it and now am planning all the future occasions for which it would be suitable – family birthdays, summer BBQ’s, Tuesday afternoons…know what I’m saying?

There was I, innocently flipping through the latest edition of Bon Appetit Magazine, turning over so many corners of so many pages I might as well have just folded down the entire damn issue, when the words ‘steak’, ‘sandwich’, ‘Parmesan’ and ‘mustard’ threw themselves off the page and into my eye-line and an instant obsession at the thought of making this for dinner was born. J & I do a lot of the cooking together which I love but this was something I fancied making for him; the thought of presenting him with something homemade, unexpected and delicious was all the incentive I needed to get acquainted with this dish.

Random day of holiday.

Sunny skies.

Holiday planning.

Out for breakfast when everyone else is in the office.

We like this. We liked this muchly.

Oh we also happen to like cinnamon french toast with ricotta, sour cherries and flaked almonds.

And we kinda don’t mind bubble and squeak cakes with pork and leek sausages, poached egg, wilted spinach, tomato relish and rocket.

Oh Jane, how you save me every time…
