  1. Made as written for ZWT6, it was really fun to find this recipe & make it for my lunch. Braudterta is the Icelandic word for this popular triple-decker sandwich, but your recipe is definitely a cut above the norm for the genre. IMO the zing the lemon zest creates that difference ~ not at all subtle, just pleasantly prominent. It was paired with Recipe #372527 by Deantini & made for a very filling & tasty lunch. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
  2. Excellent sandwich! What's not to love about up-scale egg salad and trout salad? I basically winged the amounts on ingredients because I wanted to scale down to 1 sandwich but couldn't as the yield on the recipe is for only 1 sandwich (although the recipe makes 4 sandwiches). That said, everything worked out just fine, and DS and I each enjoyed half for lunch today.


<p>Picture taken just for Zaar - mmmm milkshake...</p> <p>I'm a brand new single mommy to my tiny perfect human, so thank you to everyone who takes the time to make and review my recipes - I try to send a zmail to each of you, but baby girl has a different idea.</p> <p>I'm a good ol' prairie girl from Canada with one side of the family being Ukrainian/Slovakian and the other side is German/Russian. In other words, when we cook we take carbs, cover them in more carbs, fry'em and serve it smothered in onions and cream.&nbsp;<br />No pro chefs in my family, just grandmas and aunts and cousins and a mom that had me pinching perogies and stuffing strudel before I could form a complete sentence. <br />The most dreaded / laughed at phrase I say is, So last night, I invented this thing for supper... - I would probably publish more recipes if I actually remembered everything I put in or had an idea of how much I added!!</p>
