50 kids, a bus, a destination and a trophee to be won, That is my life for the next 4 days…..
Needless to say, padkos was a major part of all this. So if you are going on holiday, make padkos a little bit more interesting than just sandwiches and coffee!!
If you have time, stop next to the road, make a little fire and enjoy the journey!!
1 big olive ciabatta
1 big eggplant – sliced in 5mm slices lengthwise
2 big organic tomatoes or about 8 sun-dried tomatoes
4 tbsp Pesto Princess Basil Pesto
fresh herbs of your choice. 2 tbsp cream cheese
4-5 slices of mature cheddar cheese
Pre heat the oven, brush eggplant with some olive oil, season and roast in oven for 5-10 minutes or until the egg plant has browned. Alternatively, brown in a skillet on the stove. Slice ciabatta open lengthwise and start packing the fillings. You can basically use what ever fillings you have available! Close the ciabatta and place in a grid that can close. Grill on an open fire(very low heat), allowing the bread to brown and the cheese to melt and become all gooey. Serve with your favorite meat and a fresh salad.
