Yesterday's leftover biscuits made the perfect holding vessel for an AMAZING ham and grilled cheese sammie. What could be better then ham, sweet roasted tomatoes, and blue cheese sandwiched between a buttery, flaky biscuit filled with bacon and cheese?? NOTHING! I knew the biscuits had potential...I knew it!!! They just needed to be filled with the right ingredients.
Oven baked potato chips served along side were a delicious treat. Making your own potato chips serves as a great blank canvas to make whatever flavors your heart desires. We seasoned ours with garlic salt, Caribbean spices, black pepper and Cajun seasonings. They were nice, crunchy and spy-say! The sammies and potato chips made the perfect lunch. Now I must pay....off to the gym :(
...happy belly :)
Oven baked potato chips - 2 servings
3 Russet and/or sweet potatoes
Caribbean Spices (360 brand)
Cajun Spice Mix
Pre-heat oven to 450F. Place oven racks on top and bottom one third of oven. Using a mandoline slicer, hold potatoes at a 45 degree angle and slice potatoes 1/8". Try to make slices same size. Using two baking sheets Spray PAM on bottom of baking sheet and sprinkle with spices. Spread potatoes in one even layer, not overlapping and spray again with Pam and top with more spices. Place baking sheets on top and bottom rack in oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove sheets, flip potatoes over and move top baking sheet to bottom rack and vice versa and bake for ten more minutes. Watch potatoes very carefully towards end since cooking times may vary since they can burn very quickly. Potatoes are done when they feel hard and crispy. Pop under broiler for a minute or two if they do not crispy enough, but watch them VERY CLOSELY.
Using Cheddar, Chive and Bacon biscuits, split biscuits in half using a serrated knife. Using a grater shave Roquefort blue cheese or Gruyere on both sides of the sandwiches. Place a few slices of ham and tomatoes on one side of the sandwich and top with other half of biscuit. Place biscuits on a baking sheet in 375F oven and roast for 15 minutes till cheese melts and top of biscuits are nice and toasted. Half way through baking, push the tops of the biscuit down to squish the sammies down a bit. By double baking the biscuits it changes the texture and makes them a little crunchy which we liked better.
