You know that little site known as Pioneer Woman – you know the one that totally dominated the Bloggies Nominations this year.. the one with a nearly religious following. Yeah, I totally took her Marlboro Man’s Favorite Sandwich and Metro Man’d it.
I know I know, the internet is going to hate me. The Pioneer Woman fateful might show up at my door and scalp me alive. I have tampered with cowboy perfection.
But see … Her husband has tight jeans and rides a horse.
Mine has hair product and plays golf. It just needed a bit a refinement as far as we were concerned.
Her sandwich is made of this (Photo credit Pioneer Woman) …
All fine ingredients but …. it just seemed to missing a little panache (photo credit me)..
We glammed the plain ol’ sandwich up with some:
- EverGlades Seasoning (actually this was a substitute for the Lowry’s)
- Some Baby Bella Mushrooms
- Honey Mustard (not pictured)
- Provolone Cheese
- oh and Asiago Bread (also not pictured)
I substituted the seasoning for a local product that we just like better. I’m sure that would sit well with most of you but here’s where I’m going to start pissing the hard core off.. I added some lovely Baby Bellas and threw in some Honey Mustard to balance all the Tabasco a bit. When we plated them up on the Asiago Rolls slathered in Dijonnaise, rather than butter, we also threw on some warmed provolone slices just to add a finishing touch. And I served it with a Chinese Cole Slaw. It was sublime. Simply sublime.
So there you have it.. the Metro Man Sandwich. Our suburban super-bowl dudes loved it.
Don’t hate me because it’s beautiful.
