Extreme Cakes: Pink Sweet 16

This isn’t a sandwich, and I didn’t make it, but I think it qualifies as extreme. My friend Jennifer is a cake decorator and recently whipped up an amazing birthday cake. My favorite parts are the flowers and the key, Yes, it’s all edible.

Shredded Beef and Baked Beans Sandwich

After a brief sabbatical involving food poisoning, I’m back with a new sandwich. This isn’t as big as some I have made, but there is more to extreme sandwiches than just the size. This one had a good flavor, the cheese was very strong and the bread was tasty.

UPDATE: I didn’t give myself food poisoning with my cooking. It came from either a local ice cream parlor, a national fast food chain, or those spicy peanuts I got at the gas station.

Carne Asada Fry Bread Sandwich

Man, this sandwich was the most involved creation yet! Home made fry bread, home made guacamole, home made carne asada marinade, home made chili. It took me about a month to learn how to make all these things decently. The Fry Bread was very good, but I can’t give out the recipe quite yet, because it’s not mine to give. I guess you could call it Grand Coulee Fry Bread.

Jennifer’s Guacamole

I’m not a big guac person. Avocados always seemed like an alien life form to me, with their rubbery shells, giant pits, and greasy interiors. Guacamole does have it’s place though and I like to cut it with equal parts sour cream.

  • 2 medium avocados
  • juice from 1 half of a lime
  • 1 third cup of chopped cilantro
  • 1 quarter cup of finely chopped red onion
  • 1 and half teaspoons of salt
  • 1 half a clove of chopped garlic

Combine two avocado innards with lime juice and stir in onion, cilantro, salt, and garlic. Stir it up until fairly smooth with lumps of avocado still present.

Ugly Grilled Leftover Sandwich

I decided to clean out my fridge a bit today and found various meats and toppings. Not enough to make a full blown extreme sandwich, but if I combined them together I could make something interesting on the fly. The results was an ugly, mean sandwich that was very tasty.

The Ingredients:

  • Sliced turkey breast with pepper.
  • Two slices of deli roast beef loaf
  • Chunks of a breast from a rotisserie chicken with paprika
  • One slice of cheap deli ham loaf
  • A slice of onion grilled in a little butter with a clove of diced garlic
  • Some Tilamook shredded cheddar cheese
  • Two slices of whole wheat bread, buttered
  • A little mayo

Bacon Chili Cheese Quesadilla Burger

Another guest sandwich from a Nintendo World Report friend, BlackNMild2k1. I really need to cook this one for myself!

Updated with additional pictures:

  • Bacon crumbled into some Chili w/ beans
  • Burger seasoned* and wrapped in foil before cooking (it’s a steam broiled stove top cooked burger)
  • 2 cheeses (American or Cheddar & Mozzarella)
  • Giant tortilla with a thin layer of mayo (which helped hold the tortilla shut)

wrap everything in the toasted tortilla and grill in the skillet till browned and cheese is melted.

*burger seasonings: Grilled Steak Seasoning, Chili Powder, Salt, Pepper & minced onions.

Ham and Turkey Ciabatta

Spring is just around the corner here in Spokane (not like winter was ever really here this year) and I decided to a fresh new sandwich. No particular theme to this sandwich but the sum is definitely greater than the parts.I learned that cibatta is an excellent bread for big sloppy extreme sandwiches due to its tensile strength. I also learned that Muenster cheese is hard to slice evenly, but totally worth it due to its awesome melt factor and slightly pungent taste. The French Onion dip was inspired by instructions at The Turkey Sandwich Report

The Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf of ciabatta bread, lightly toasted with butter and fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 7.5 oz. container of Nalley French Onion Dip
  • 1 turkey breast, sliced. NOT TURKEY LOAF LUNCHMEAT
  • About 1 pound of Deli sliced ham made at Egger’s Meats (best ham in town)
  • A hunk of sliced Muenster cheese from Safeway melted over the top under a broiler
  • Spinach leaves

Chili Cheese Dog Burger

Chili may be second greatest condiment ever, second only to bacon. Combine it with lots of cheese and it is near perfection. I decided to make another sloppy sandwich, but it was delicious. Seriously, I had to go wash my hands twice while eating this thing.
