Ayvalık Sandwich

  1. Combine the tomato paste and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Then add the sausage in tomato sauce.
  3. Place the sucuk on a panini toaster and grill.
  4. When it’s cooked, place them inside the bread with kashar cheese.
  5. Turn occasionally and add more kashar and salami.
  6. Butter the sides of the bread and place on the panini toaster.
  7. Toast until both sides are crispy and brown.
  8. If you don’t have a toaster you can use cast iron skillets on top of each other instead.
  9. After toasting your bread, open and place the pickled cucumber, tomato, and sausage into your sandwich.
  10. At last, add some mayonnaise and ketchup into your sandwich, then it is ready to dig in.

Dirty Spring Sandwich

  1. To make the Russian salad, combine mayonnaise, canned garnishes, pickled cucumber, pickle juice, salt, and black pepper in a bowl.
  2. Halve the baguette bread and spread the salad to the bottom. The salad will be an insulator and a good dressing for your bread.
  3. Place the lettuce leaves.
  4. To grill the halloumi, heat a large pan on high heat and add some olive oil.
  5. When oil is hot, place the halloumis on the pan. To have gorgeous golden-brown halloumis you shouldn’t flip them until one side is completely cooked and crunchy.
  6. Place the aged cheese, grilled haloumis, pickled cucumbers on lettuce leaves, and top with chips.
  7. Make sure you add the chips just before you eat to keep it crunchy.
