Cooking Thursday

At our house we have some routines when it comes to meals.  On Saturday night, we usually have pizza of some sort, and on Sunday night we have some type of a hot sandwich - BBQ, pulled pork, paninis...
So, I always enjoy finding a new recipe for a sandwich, and this is one we tried out last week and enjoyed!
For more recipes, visit Sandra at Diary of a SAHM.

Crock Pot Grinders

1 round loaf Artisan Italian bread
provolone cheese
sliced turkey
sliced ham
sliced beef
thinly sliced onions and peppers - optional
olive oil
oregano and basil

Slice bread, leaving 1 inch unsliced at bottom.  Layer cheese, top with meat and veggies and sprinkle with seasonings.  Fold each cheese and meat packet in half and tuck into every other slice of bread.
Wrap tightly with aluminum foil, and then wrap again.
Place a small aluminum pie plate in crock pot, or make several balls of foil and place on bottom of crock pot.
Pour about 1/2 cup water into crock pot and place wrapped sandwich on top of pie plate or foil balls.
Bake on low for about 2 hours.
When ready to serve, cut each sandwich apart and drizzle lightly with olive oil.

They look delicious. This would be a good Sunday night supper for my family as well.


I swear, each and every time you post something to cook/consume, I drool. And I'm doing it right now. These look mighty fittin'!!! I'm wondering if it would work with rye and pastrami?!! Sure it would. I'm gonna have to make these...sure 'nough.

That sounds perfectly incredible. I have used my crock pot for an oven before, by putting the foil balls on bottom. I love the sound of this recipe and I will be trying it for sure. Today I'm testing Pinterest like you often do, Mari. Into the crock pot I put three huge chicken breasts (boneless/skinless) along with one entire bottle of BBQ sauce, 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, and half a can of Cherry Coke. I set it on low and it's to cook for 5-6 hours, then I'll shred the meat and serve it on buns. It's already smelling pretty amazing. Took all of five minutes to make.

Sounds delicious, Mari. Thank you for sharing. We're always looking for something a little different.

Hope all is well with you.
