Thought I'd share a recipe with you guys that Ben & I have really enjoyed recently.
The idea started with some leftover Christmas ham that I wanted to get creative with--and ended with this recipe that I found in Better Homes & Gardens. It combines an unusual combination of flavors, but surprisingly, was really tasty!
These yummy little bites are called
Banh Mi Bruschetta
Here's what you'll need:
24 -1/2 in. thick slices from baguette-style French bread
1/3 cup garlic-herb, reduced-fat mayonnaise (my revision)
2 TBSP. soy sauce
6 oz. thinly sliced ham
1 English cucumber, sliced
2 carrots, shredded
1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
thin jalapeño slices
Preheat broiler. Spread mayonnaise on one side of each bread slice and arrange, spread side up, on a baking sheet. Broil 4-5 inches from the heat for 1 minute or just until starting to toast. Remove from oven; gently brush with soy sauce. Return to oven & broil 1 minute more. Top bread slices with ham, cucumber, carrots, cilantro & jalapeño slices. Enjoy!
