HERB ROLL [ Came up with this one on 111208 as a top way to use up some aging Gruyere from a fondue party that never happened ]
( Note: Find whatever herbs you can in the garden ~ I'd suggest the French Tarragon & Gruyere combination is what makes this sandwich unique but oily Olives and other herbs are the icing on this cake! )

Take a fresh crusty roll ~ preferably warm.

Fill with thinly sliced Gruyere (you don't need much), Fresh: Chives or Spring Onions, Endives, French Tarragon, Sweet Marjoram, and Kalamata Olives (Pitted & chopped)

HOT ICE CREAM ROLL [ Came up with this one on 040409 as I had a stale bread roll that needed using and no garlic in the house ~ guess it works on a similar principle to deep fried ice-cream ] Heat stale roll in the oven ~ remove when crusty then cut in half and spread with a decent layer of Raspberry jam then vanilla ice cream ~ surprisingly tasty! [ NB use decent Raspberry jam ]
