Swedish Meatball Sandwich

Don’t know what it is about these addictive, little pieces of heaven, but like most folks, you can’t stop at eating just one. The texture is like meatloaf and the spices make it so flavorful. Then add silky gravy on top and throw in the towel. So good it makes any grown man’s knees buckle.

The Swedish meatball recipe is perfect for potluck or serve as appetizers. I can easily eat a dozen, but it’s also delicious over egg noodles or stuffed in between bread. Any leftovers can be frozen. However, I’m not shy to admit that this is never a problem at my home.

Chicken Satay Sandwich (with Indian spices)

Satay is marinated thin strips of meat, skewered and grilled over wood or charcoal. Often associated with Thai food, satay’s real origin is Indonesia. Skewered meat or shish kabob was introduced to Indonesia by the Arabs around the 19th century. Its popularity spread from Indonesia into other neighboring Southeast Asian countries. Beef and chicken were mainly used for satay. Nowadays, one can use just about anything that can be marinated and threaded onto skewers. If chicken is unavailable, substitute with pork, shrimp, or tofu. Satay gets its nice yellow tint from tumeric. Common spices used to make satay are turmeric, cumin, coriander, garlic, shallots, lemongrass, galanga, fish sauce, soy sauce, palm sugar, and lime juice. My recipe is Thai based satay infused with Indian spices.

The idea to serve chicken satay in a hotdog bun came from my friend Erik. While Erik was grilling the satay, I happened to glance over as he placed a hotdog bun on the grill and I blurted out, “You better put another bun on for me!” That’s how the chicken satay sandwich came about. I didn’t get a chance to garnish my sandwich because we were experimenting. Next time, I would add diced tomatoes, onions, cilantro and a squirt of Sriracha sauce. If satay is a dish you really like, then you’re not going to want to pass on trying this dish.

Chicken Tandoori Grilled Cheese Sandwich (by – Anoop and Kush)

Inspired by the wonderful grilled cheese sandwiches at Drink, Fort Point, Boston, MA and a couple of their fantastic cocktails, the Chicken Tandoori Grilled Cheese Sandwich was conceived. Bringing together great friends, refreshing drinks, and perfect weather, it was a no brainer to fire up the grill and bring a classic grilled cheese sandwich to life; a fusion of a traditional Indian chicken dish with the comfort of an American classic into an elegant balance of East meets West.
