Generate New Recipes From Classic Combinations

A really easy way to generate new recipes is to take a classic flavor combination and make something new out them. On our last shopping trip Michael bought some sliced blue cheese for his roast beef sandwiches so I thought about elaborating on this and decided to add sliced apples and balsamic vinegar to this classic sandwich. Apples, blue cheese, and balsamic are classic flavor profiles and they pair really well with the roast beef and butter lettuce.



  • Roast Beef
  • Apples, sliced thinly
  • Sliced Blue Cheese
  • Butter Lettuce
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Ciabatta Rolls


Slice Ciabatta rolls in half and toast.  Drizzle each slice of bread with balsamic vinegar—just enough to coat the slice.  Add roast beef to bottom slice of bread.  Top with cheese, then apple slices, then lettuce.
