Turkey day is coming, and I usually celebrate along with family friends. I've been charged with deep frying the turkey the past couple years, but in addition I like to prep some appetizers to bring along while everyone waits. Last year I did some basic meat and cheese rolls, but I used great product like boars head port roast beef, with sharp provolone.
So to extend that idea this year, I wanted to create little open sandwiches using a similar meat roll but put them on a grilled baguette with a somewhat exotic spread.
The other day in the supermarket I saw a jar of fire roasted red peppers in a garlic oregano oil. I thought.. hmm.. if I mixed that with a good helping of feta cheese and puree it, with a little cracked pepper, could be a great spread for this sandwich idea. So today I gave it a shot. After dipping a cracker in it, the taste was so very familiar... a quick google and I realized my exotic spread is for all intents and purposes good ol' pimento cheese! dang! so much for original.
