Gourmet Cafe Style Lunch Ideas

February 4th, 2007 at 09:38 am

As it's hot here, I will have cold salads & meze kind of lunches most days. While having coffee the other week in the city, I had a look at kind of lunches are being served in other food outlets. Here are some of my findings and my versions on them. Because you wouldn't go out to buy some of these ingredients if you on a strict budget like I am. I have put in some other alternatives, as you would use what you have got and not buy fancy stuff because it's in the ingredient list. I buy Focaccia & Turkish bread in single serves when they are marked down, so I bag them up and freeze them in single serves. Most times they are packed in bags of 4 so if I can I will buy 2 bags at a time. Using about 2 per week gives me month worth of them. Seeing that I can buy the rolls for around 50c each or less. I can make these recipes from home for under $2.00 each using what's in my fridge at the time. Seeing that I do make my own Hummus, Marinated Peppers, Marinated Feta & Pesto and bulk buy Sweet Chilli Sauce in a large bottle and decant into a smaller bottle, all saving money on the overall cost.

You can use any kind of rolls or bread but original ones were Focaccia rolls. These Fancy bread rolls sell for $5.95 each or more. As I have never bought them, I don't know if the chicken is cold or hot but it's grilled. They could have slice cheese on them, as they were call melts.

Chilli Chicken Tenderloin Melts
Garlic Focaccia Bread or Turkish bread buttered, put lettuce or rocket leaves, then with Chicken Tenderloins, Marinated Peppers, top with 2 avocado slices, sweet chilli sauce and sour cream and snow peas sprouts garnish.

Pesto Chicken Tenderloin Melts
Garlic Focaccia Bread or Turkish bread spread with Hummus or pesto, then rocket or lettuce, Chicken Tenderloins Marinated Peppers or few fresh pepper slices topped with 3 avocado slices or Marinated Feta and Mayo or pesto over the top.

Gourmet Salad Rolls
Focaccia Bread or Turkish Bread with Hummus Lettuce or Rocket, Tuna or Ham or Chicken slices, Marinated Feta with Marinated Peppers topped with Sweet Chilli Sauce.

BREAKFAST Baked Beans on Toast Coffee
LUNCH Macaroni & Cheese Fruit Coffee
DINNER Curry Ground Beef & Rice with Sambals
