A good friend, Angie, posted a week or so ago that they made Marv n Joe's for dinner the other night. She was very mean...she posted pictures of them. MADE ME SO HUNGRY!!!
I kept that picture up on my computer for a week and it kept making me hungry.
Let me give you a little background for those of you unfortunate to have never had a Marv n Joe. I attended Utah State University in Logan, Utah. I loved it. The food court (HUB) in the student center (TSC) has a bakery named Hazel's Bakery. Delicious thick fresh baked bread. (I'm getting hungry again).
As an engineering student I knew who Dr. Halling and Dr. Joe were and they were really funny guys. They had experimented with different open face sandwiches and found a combination that they liked. It caught on and became a regular menu item. They even wrote an article in the student newspaper about it which I’ll share here.
Since it’s specific to USU you can’t get it anywhere else…unless you make it yourself. SO I DID! Yesterday my husband came home for lunch and I made us some Marv n Joe’s. And they were FABULOUS!!!!!
Bread, garlic butter, tomatoes, salt and pepper, provolone, parmesan. Then toast it. (I’ll admit I don’t know how to do oil and vinegar at home!)
My husband ate 2, I ate 3. Definitely a success. I’m pretty sure I’ll make more of them again and again.
So let me ask a question. Is an open face sandwich really a sandwich? Does there have to be meat for YOU to like a sandwich? If you did have to have meat, which meat do you think would go best with this? Ham? Bacon? What do you think?
