Dagwood, Eat Your Heart Out; The World’s Greatest Sandwich!

As the More is More Mom®, I’m all about……..more mixing it up at dinnertime! While most nights we enjoy a great dish with all the fixings, sometimes it’s a real treat to simplify. The other night, I made a sandwich that was so delicious Dagwood would have been jealous!


Grilled Steak Sandwiches Smothered with Pesto-Mayo

Sweet Potato Steak Fries


Grilled Steak Sandwiches Smothered with Pesto-Mayo;


1 lb boneless beef sirloin steak

Course sea salt

Cracked black pepper

Garlic salt

Olive oil

4 Tbsp mayonnaise

4 Tbsp prepared pesto sauce

Large loaf of baguette bread (enough for 4 sandwiches)

2 heads of Romaine lettuce

Red onion, thinly sliced

2 tomatoes, thinly sliced


Pre-heat grill to medium-high


Sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper

Grill for approximately 5 minutes on each side, or until desired temperature

Allow to sit for 5 minutes, cut into thin slices

In a small bowl, combine the mayo and the pesto


Slice each head of Romaine lettuce in half lengthwise

Brush both sides with oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic salt

Place on the grill and cook until there are char marks on both sides

Remove from grill and allow to cool

Cut off the stem and discard

Chop the lettuce


Slice the baguette loaf (loaves) into 4 pieces

Slice horizontally and open

Brush with oil

Place on the grill, open side down until lightly charred


Place one serving of bread on a platter

Slather mayo-pesto mixture on both slices of baguette bread

Spread grilled lettuce on top of mayo-pesto picture (this is what makes the sandwich!)

Place tomato slices on one side and onion slices of the other

Top one slice of bread with steak and close the sandwich

Slice in half serve


Sweet Potato Steak Fries

We don’t really eat fried food, but life would not be worth living without French fries. As an alternative to that big fat greasy mess, I like to bake mine; either sweet potatoes or the classic Idaho.


Each potato yields approximately 16 matchstick fries


Scrub potato

Square off the potato by slicing off the ends

Cut each potato in half vertically

Slice into 4-5 wedges

Slice each wedge in half


Throw all potatoes in a large bowl

Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper

Toss and place on a foil lined baking sheet

Cook in the oven for 20-30 minutes, until soft


Place a sandwich, sliced in half, on a plate with a hearty helping of fries!


More mixing it up, more sweet, sweet potatoes, more delectable Dagwood sandwiches….
