Amighetti's is a well known Italian restaurant in St. Louis, where I grew up. They have a great deli sandwich that I still crave to this day (even out here in CA). It has a really delicious spread that makes it different from other sandwiches. The true key is their famous bread, but in a pinch, you can make this sandwich at home with your own bread.
From my Family Recipe Box, Mom loves this sandwich! "This sandwich is a 'smashing success'... in more ways than one. It's a great traveler." You must admit, it is pretty amusing. :) From the Family Recipe Box, dated 3/1/85. The sandwich keeps well, chilled, and is good for taking along on picnics and camping trips.
This juicy chicken and tangy cream sauce are wonderful for lunch or supper. On the go? These are great warm or cold and make great lunch, picnic or beach fare! They are very portable when wrapped in foil. Perfect with fresh island fruit and a cold tropical drink!

This recipe came from the USA cookbook. A friend emailed this to me, and it is a nice meal to have on a hot night. I usually serve it up with a nice crisp salad, and fresh fruit for desssert. Hope all enjoy.
Chef Fred K. Schmidt at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky, created The Hot Brown sandwich in 1926. In the 1920s, the Brown Hotel drew over 1,200 guests each evening for its dinner dance. The band would play until late, and when the band took bread, around midnight; people would retire to the restaurant for a bite to eat. Bored with the traditional ham and eggs, Chef Schmidt, delighted his guests by creating the Hot Brown.
The mayonnaise in place of the butter makes the bread toast evenly and gives a similar yet different crispiness. This is how they made it on the grill at a diner I used to frequent, the kind where the grill is behind the counter and you can watch. CAUTION: using low fat or no fat mayo or even miracle whip will change the outcome of the final product, the first 2 contain water and the second sugar that does not act in the same manor as an oil or fat sub.
Delicious garlicky, lemony creamed mushrooms for those lazy weekend breakfasts when you are not constrained by the need to be out the front door as soon as possible. These creamed mushrooms could also be used as a topping for meatloaves, steaks, chops or steamed vegetables, or as a sauce for pasta. It also makes a tasty supper on nights when you get home too late to really feel like making or eating a full meal. I have no idea now where I got this recipe from originally. It’s been in my recipe files for years. My mother used to cook mushrooms like this when we'd been mushrooming, and she tells me that her English grandmother, who was from Kent, used to make something similar.
Fatty and gooey--just like any good pizza;) When my husband and I stay in on Saturday nights (curled up on the sofa with pillows, blankets, Blockbusters, Ben&Jerry's, and candy!) he makes a batch of these to scarf down too:) Fortunately, we redeem ourselves by jogging together 3 times a week; I think myself "model-thin" by means of yoga and Tae-Bo. Chris shapes up by kick-boxing and lifting. Then we ruin it all by eating--but what a way to go!!!
