Funke Koleosho schools us on sandwich and gives a full recipe on different types
What Makes a Good Sandwich?
Simple, its the filling! A sandwich is only as good as its filling….and because I have enjoyed eating bread with a variety of things like cooked beans, akara, moinnoin etc in the past, I wondered how these may be used in making sandwiches. Some worked and others didn’t in the taste department but some of those that worked, I am sharing with you today.
Enter Jollof Beans, Jollof Chicken Sandwiches. Try making some with a variety of fillings and serve them to your house guests or at your parties. They make a real change from the usual rice and pounded yam….
What you need
- A selection of brown and white bread (depending on your preference. Sliced hard dough bread can also be used)
- Roast chicken
- Hard Boiled eggs
- Canned tuna
- Pre cooked Aganyin beans (jollof beans can also be used)
- Black pepper (optional)
- Cooked prawns
- Premium Ata Dindin (get the recipe here)
- Some salad for garnishing
What to do
Remove all skin bones from the roast chicken and chop in to small pieces. Transfer chicken pieces into a bowl and add a generous amount of mayonnaise and ata din din. Also add a pinch of freshly milled black pepper. Mix all together then fill into sandwiches
Add some pre-cooked aganyin beans to a bowl and add some mayonnaise. Mashed/jollof beans can also be used as an alternative. Then add some mayonnaise and stir well. Add mayonnaise keeps the sandwich from drying out and moist. Fill into sandwiches
Shell the boiled eggs and chop into small pieces, add some mayonnaise, ata din din and/or freshly milled black pepper. Mix all together and fill into sandwiches
Cut the prawns (if they are too large, otherwise leave then whole). Place prawns into a large bowl and add mayonnaise, ata din din and/or freshly milled black pepper. Mix all together and fill into sandwiches
Cut the tuna can open and drain it of its water. Add the tuna meat into a bowl and add some mayonnaise, ata din din and/or freshly milled black pepper. Mix all together and fill into sandwiches.
