Kid Friendly POTATOES and CIABATTA BREAD French Dip Sammies

We eat lots of potatoes at our house. (We do live in Idaho after all!) And so to get potatoes in our BB isn't too terribly exciting around our house. Until now. Check out the super fun way we ate our potatoes tonight!


 Have your six year old use an apple peeler/corer to curly-q the potatoes. 
Mine is from Pampered Chef.
 Boring Potato.
 FUN Potato!
 Spray with non-stick cooking oil and add your favorite seasoning.
Our favorite is Johnny's. YUM!
Bake at 400* for 25-30 minutes.
(While you eat these, I double dog dare you to try not to think about Ramona Quimby "boing-ing" the girl's hair who sits in front of her in class. Please tell me you know what I'm talking about!)

I wasn't going to post about our sandwiches tonight because the "recipe" seems so simple (though, that is the purpose of this blog; family friendly recipes that use BB items.) BUT...the CIABATTA BREAD from Bountiful Basket makes yummy French Dip style sandwiches even YUMMIER! Holy moly! So, I had to share the idea. If you like French Dip Sandwiches, then you must try it. You won't be sorry.

Here's how I do mine:

  • Use left over roast from the night before.
  • Slice thin.
  • Let meat marinate in Au Jus on the stove.
  • Butter Ciabatta Bread and broil until very light golden brown.
  • Layer on meat, sauteed onions, and mozzarella cheese.
  • Place back in broiler until cheese is melted.
  • Cut sandwich into individual servings.
  • Serve with a cup of au jus.
