This week's letter comes from Beth Davison of Maury County, TN.
Dear Celebrity Chef,
I'm doing a dinner party this weekend and I don't know what to serve. It's for 12 people, 3 of whom are vegetarians. I need some dishes large enough to feed a finicky crowd. Please HELP!
This Week's Celebrity Chef Is:
Hi, Beth. Dinner parties are tricky. You know what's not tricky? Sammiches. You heard me right, sammiches. Not to be confused with its cousin the sandwich, sammiches are a much maligned, overlooked, culinary gem. One that can serve both vegetarians and meatatarians alike. Here's a list of what you'll need:
Bologna (.99 at de Piggilty Wiggilty)
Cheese (American Singles)
White Bread (the cheapest, under-a-dollar, bleached, enriched, crumbly, White bread you can find)
Slap its ass together and cut it like it's hot.
Bologna Sammiches are the best, whether you're serving 5 or 20, vegetarians or octogenarians. And they are perfect for both an appetizer, and a main dish.
