Aug 28: Ham & Coleslaw on a Ciabatta Roll; Smoked Salmon Pizza


We tested out some par-baked Ciabatta Rolls (from Aldi) by filling with Sliced Ham & Coleslaw from Mr Fish & Chips.

  • The Ciabatta par-bake was $2.69 or 45c per serve
  • Coleslaw adds 58c per serve
  • Ham is $2.69 or 54c per serve.

While we followed the instructions, the rolls had not developed a good crust in the recommended time. We will do better next time as the rolls are worth a repeat. Overall, a decent sandwich for $1.57 per serve.


One of our favorite ‘Fishy Friday’ meals is the Smoked Salmon Pizza, tonight with extra Shallot.

  • The Smoked Salmon Pieces where $5.49 for 8oz, and we only served six, or $2.58 per serve
  • The Pizza Dough was $1.29, or 65c per serve
  • We used semi dried Cherry Tomatoes for 60c per serve
  • About two ounces of Neufchatel went on each Pizza, or 25c per serve
  • Add 30c for Capers and Shallot.

While we still haven’t been successful getting our pizzas to stay round, they are tasting very good. Budget extravagance for $4.38 per serve.
