For as long as I have known my husband, he has talked about a Bird’s Nest Sandwich that he used to get at The Oasis when he lived in Portland.
He remembered how good the sandwich was and how great the fly fishing was.
Unfortunately, I could not send him to Oregon to fish last week, but I could send him the store for the ingredients for the sandwich.
I will be honest.
I was skeptical.
But Wednesday he made these Bird’s Nest Sandwiches for dinner.
And I loved them.
This is not a sandwich for the birds (pun intended).
Refreshing, light, full of texture.
I made another batch of them today for lunch, but I made them 2 hours ahead and then wrapped them up and put them in the frig.
I liked them even better after that way.
Next time I serve a luncheon or have a little party these will be on the menu.
