An ongoing series: I’m paying homage to some of my favourite bloggers by creating a custom sandwich in each of their honour.
First up was The @Avitable Dog. Today we follow it up with a great sandwich for another great writer.
I’ve met some really awesome bloggers over the years – many of them via my wife Ali. Generally when her blogging friends get together there’s a lot of talk about the online drama du jour, or some other topic that I feign interest in. However, when I first met Katie and found out she had worked at IBM (as I had) and was an uber-techno geek (she may deny it, but don’t buy it) who loves all things LOTR, Star Trek and all points in between – I knew we would hit it off.
Katie’s daughter and my youngest Isabella are two peas from a pod. We recently got them together for a play date on a weekend where Ali and I were supposed to have been in New Orleans for a trip we had to cancel. For this reason I was really in the mood to whip together a NOLA classic.
This version of a Po’ Boy is super simple to make. I stuffed some sub rolls with pre-made coleslaw, sweet pickles, oven baked onion rings, creole sauce and grilled chicken. For the sauce I simply whipped together some mayonnaise, creole seasoning and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. I put a little of the creole spice on the chicken before grilling as well.
The crunch of the onion rings, coleslaw and pickles made the whole thing just pop. So, so, good.
