I do love sandwiches, and these ones are pretty neat. I used This Recipe from craftykin.blogspot.com for a very quick bread, but I halved it. The recipe said to bake at 200 degrees Celcius, so I think I ended up heating the oven to 380. It’s an odd number, but just go with it. Preheat.
1 1/4 C warm water, 3 Tbsp sugar, 1 1/2 Tbsp yeast, 1 Tbsp oil
Whisk. Let rest for about 5 minutes, or until…
it becomes frothy on top.
Then add 3 C flour, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp baking powder.
Mix. But really just use your hands, or a stand mixer. This hand mixer really wasn’t big enough to handle even a half batch – it did okay, but the dough ended up getting stuck in the beaters.
And you have to knead it anyway, so you might as well just stick your hands in there.
Since I was making this just for myself, I put two balls of dough in a muffin tin and the rest of the dough is in the fridge for some other meal.
Press the dough up around the muffin tin to make a well in the center,
then start filling it with sandwich stuff. Such as tomato,
onion. I added a little olive oil to help the onions soften as they bake.
And of course, ketchup and mustard.
And a tahini “cheese” sauce. More about that below.
Pinch it shut. Bake 12 to 15 minutes.
Remove from oven, wait until they’re cool enough to handle but still nice and warm.
They might be oozing a little, that’s okay.
Mine stuck just a tiny bit, nothing that couldn’t be helped by going around the popovers gently with a butter knife.
This was wonderful, and so simple. I might make a batch to take to work for lunches and see how they are cold or at room temp. Now about the tahini sauce:
It started it out like most of my tahini sauce recipes: tahini, lemon juice, salt, water, garlic. I added lots of onion powder, a bit of turmeric for color and just a little smoked paprika (also mostly for color). And I added a heaping Tbsp of nutritional yeast. It came out a great bright yellow.
But I wanted it more cheese-like, so I added a cube of fermented tofu.
Just mash it into the tahini sauce with a fork and stir and mash and stir with the fork until it’s smooth. I used the leftover sauce for nachos, but I didn’t like it so well for that. In these sandwich popover things, though, it is perfect.
Also…today for my summer writing project I sent out one package and one letter.
