May 28: Turkey, Swiss & Kumato Sandwich; Pressure Cooker Soutzoukakia with Tabboleh and Dolmas

Although this is a fairly typical sandwich for us, it’s a little novel now that we’re not toasting the Dave’s Killer Bread.

  • The turkey is $3.49 and we shared ⅓ or 58c per serve
  • The Dave’s Killer Bread is 66c per serve
  • Five Kumato were $3.49 and we shared one, or 35c per serve
  • Swiss slices are 12 for $3.99 or 34c per serve
  • Add 20c for garlic spread.

A pretty decent sandwich for $2.13 per serve.


It was time to revisit Soutzoukakia.  Once again we used one can of fire roasted crushed tomato, and a can of Trader Joe’s Grecian Style Eggplant,Tomato and Onion. This is an excellent addition and it really elevated this dish. We cannot recommend it highly enough.

The recipe serves three people, and the leftover will surface in a roll tomorrow!

  • Ground lamb was $9.99 or $3.33 per serve
  • An egg is 51c or 17c per serve
  • 8 oz Panko breadcrumbs are $2.99 and we used half, or 25c per serve
  • Cotija cheese, substituting for Parmesan is $3.99 for 8oz and we shared 2 oz or 50c per serve
  • 1/4 cup and a tablespoon of red wine – halved – is 34c per serve
  • Canned crushed tomatoes were $1.25 for the can, or 42c per serve
  • The eggplant, tomato and onion is $2.49 or 83c per serve
  • Onions, shallot and garlic adds 25c per serve
  • Parsley was $1.49 for the bunch, but we only used 1/4 or 13c per serve
  • Fresh mint came from our garden
  • Tomato paste comes in a 90c can, but we used 1/8 or 5c per serve
  • Tabouli costs $2.69 for 8 oz and we had 2 oz each, or 67c per serve
  • The tin of dolma’s is $2.49 or 83c per serve.

The lamb version creates a much softer patty – almost a mousse texture – with more flavor than with beef, so we like this version better for  $7.77 per serve.
