Gypsy Salami and Goat Cheese Sandwich

Start your week off right: make Monday family night!

The Kids Cook Monday is a weekly opportunity for families to take health into their own hands. The Kids Cook Monday provides examples of kid friendly recipes and picture and/or video demonstrations along with nutrition and safety tips – making it easy for families to cook and eat together every Monday.

When kids pitch in making meals, they’re empowered to consider the portions, the vitamins and the nutrients of what they’re eating. And since the family that cooks together eats together, parents can check in with their children during dinner.” ~ The Kids Cook Monday ~ Take the Challenge!

If you are saying “Goat Cheese? Yuck!”, the flavour burst combination of this sandwich might just win you over.  Not only is this sandwich delicious, it’s very quick and easy to make and a change to the regular sandwich options out there.


Salsa (whichever is your favorite, I chose medium chunky salsa)
Gypsy Salami Deli Meat(You can use other salami meat but the gypsy salami is my favourite)
Cheddar Cheese
Cranberry Goat Cheese (usually find in the deli, speciality cheese section)
Ciabatta Bun


On the bottom half of the ciabatta bun cover the bun with salsa.  Place 2 to 3 slices of gypsy salami on top of the salsa.  Next, slice some cranberry goat cheese in thick slices and place on top of the gypsy salami (about 3 or enough to cover the salami).

Place both halves of the bun onto a grill pan. Sprinkle grated cheddar cheese onto the top half of the ciabatta bun and place into the oven, or in my case a toaster oven, on broil for 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and slightly browned.  Remove from the oven, place the top onto the bottom half, garnish the plate with 2 tablespoons of cottage cheese sprinkled with dill, salt and pepper (or whichever garnish you like) and enjoy!
