Now THAT's dinner! BBA Sourdough

My sourdough techniques have really come a long way. This weekend's loaf was far and away the best I've made. Delicious, sour, great crumb and texture, it had it all. I used about 25% whole wheat flour.

So what's for dinner? Turkey bacon lightly fried in a skillet then put on top of tangy Greek grilling cheese on my fresh sourdough. The whole sandwich goes back on the skillet and a hot cast iron skillet is put on top to press it down. Some green beans lightly sautee'd with garlic and extra virgin olive oil, and some garlic dill pickles to round it out.

Oh, and a pint of English ale. Who's got it better than me? :)

-Joe

I want that dinner for us. Everything about it from the beautiful toasted bread and bacon/cheese and the olive oil/beans, the ale....who could ask for more. Thanks for a great photo. I'm going to plan to reproduce it. Yum. Great job Joe.                                  weavershouse
