Sandwiches, seriously

The Emeril's Kicked-Up Sandwiches Getting Started Kit. Lucy Mercer/A Cook and Her Books

I am so thrilled to be selected as a blogger participating in Chef Emeril Lagasse’s #SeriousSandwich blogalong for his new cookbook, Emeril’sKicked-Up Sandwiches (Morrow, $24.99) . This soon-to-be-released cookbook is piled high with 100 recipes across the sandwich spectrum - from everyday egg salad kicked-up Emeril style to a luscious veggie muffuletta with eggplant instead of salami. Along the way, there will be burgers, lettuce wraps, panini and even dessert sandwiches (gingerbread ice cream sandwiches, anyone? is that a Heck Yea! I hear? Keep calm, they're on their way.)

Look for my first post October 1st and stay tuned for a giveaway and lots of great food! Meanwhile, I'm thinking of all the catch-phrases M. Lagasse is responsible for launching into pop culture ~ "Bam!" and "Kick it up a notch!" come to mind. What's your favorite Emeril-ism? and please let me know your favorite sandwiches, too!

Congratulations, Lucy! My favorite sandwiches were Duke sandwiches, which are still made in Greenville, S.C. Pimento cheese, the thinnest ham with delicate mustard, baked ham, pepper and onion--all on thin white bread. The sandwiches of my childhood there. There's no way to duplicate them--but I'll be eager to try whatever you come up with!

@Paulette Alden - how fascinating to hear of Duke sandwiches. I will definitely have to try one of those one of these days. Sounds delish!
