Stuffed Cob


Slashfood is packing a picnic and I'm bringing a plate! Well, not a plate per se, more of a loaf of bread, well, no... not that either. A salad perhaps, or a sandwich. Maybe I could call it a salabreadwich. That has a certain ring to it. Sala-bread-wich. No need for those fancy names like "panino premuto".

Although it is all of these things - a salad, a loaf of bread and a sandwich, in reality stuffed cob is a much nicer name. Although, if you're prone to more aggressive thoughts, it might conjure up images of beaten up friends, or in my case beaten up drunk people. Needless to say, over the past 4 or 5 years, this has become one of my favourite picnic plates. I can make it as elaborate as I wish, garnishing it with roasted sweet potato, semi-sun-dried tomatos and olive tepenade, or easy and plain with German salami, plump tomatoes and slices of cucumber. This is all I need on a small picnic, as it's sooo filling (not that I forget the sweets!) It's always a hit, easy to construct and is very portable.

I reckon that you could take one savoury stuffed cob and one sweet stuffed cob for an all round meal. I could just imagine the layers of peanut butter, jam, marshmallow, honey, nutella....

Ooops! This sweet daydream just melted and everything became a big gooey mess. I think I'll leave the sweet one at home.

And for proof that I've always enjoyed picnics...

Ok, Bonnie,

I have to stop looking at your blog at work. It makes me far too hungry!

What's the opposite of food porn, do you think?

Jen,
Yay for summer! Although I heard that this last year in Oz, it was a never ending summer! 5-6 months of 35 degrees! Can't say I miss it too much...

Bro,
Yours is better!

Keiko,
This is one of my favourites! :D

Search Daydream delicious...
