Easter Leftovers – Banh Mi Sandwiches
Yea. You read that title correctly. So what’s the connection between Easter leftovers and Bahn Mi sandwiches? Ham and hard boiled eggs, my friends! Because, let’s be honest. Raise your hand if, like me, you have Easter leftovers in your fridge. And keep that hand up if you hate wasting food. We could totally be friends. If you can’t stand another dinner of leftover ham and potatoes, this recipe is for you. Your family will never know that you’re simply repurposing Easter dinner into a new, totally different meal.
Bahn Mi newbie? You’re in luck. Bahn Mis are essentially the sub sandwich of Vietnam. Except, that description doesn’t do them justice. I mean, how much better can it get than meat, pickled veggies, cilantro, and a spicy sauce – all on a french bread roll? Pure perfection.
Now, my Bahn Mi recipe clearly isn’t very traditional. But who knew transferring Easter leftovers to a Vietnamese sandwich would taste this good?! Yea. This girl. So go on and give it a whirl. Your family will thank you.
