Caribbean Patacone sandwiches are a staple of the region, dating back to the early nineteenth century. They first gained popularity in England, where they were described as “pizza cutlets”. It was not until the nineteenth century that Caribbean Patacone sandwiches made their way over to North America. In fact, the recipe is so popular that it can be found in most standard American fast food hamburgers!
The basis of any Caribbean Patacone sandwich is the sandwich bread (which is made from an Italy bread mix), a tomato and cheese mixture, the filling of your choice, and of course the tomato sauce. Typically, this type of sandwich is served with the cheese stuffed in the middle and topped with the tomato sauce. While some diners prefer the fillings to be placed on top, others leave it to the cheese to do all of the work. For example, it may be easier to use mozzarella cheese than to scrape it off and place it in the middle of your burger.
The actual process of making this sandwich is rather simple, as long as you have a reliable recipe. You should start by mixing the yeast bread with water. If you live in an area where it snows, it would also be wise to stir the water. This will make sure that the ingredients are well-hydrated.
Once the yeast bread is ready, it is time to create the tomato and cheese mixture. In order to achieve a proper taste for this sandwich, the cheese has to be blended well with the tomato. This is done by breaking it into pieces (it should be rather small particles). Then, using a blender or a food processor (depending on how much food you want to put into the blender), it is important to blend the mixture until it becomes a paste. This helps make it easier to spread the creamy mixture on the bread.
Now, we need to make some holes on the bread. We do this to allow the cream mixture to seep into the bread. Once you have made all the necessary holes, spread melted butter over it. To prevent a mess, it is best to use a cookie cutter.
As an alternative to the tomato and cheese, you may also choose to include other items on your Caribbean Patacone sandwiches. These items may include; fresh vegetables, ham, lettuce, egg, or even ham, egg, and cheese. There are numerous combinations that you can try. But for the most part, it is advisable to stick with the traditional items such as ham, tomato, and cheese.
While making these sandwiches, it is important to remember that it is not necessary to cook them thoroughly. Most of these sandwiches are delicious on their own and can be eaten cold. However, if you want to make them better, you can always make them the way you like them. It is important to cut them properly, mix the ingredients together well, and serve them with freshly squeezed lemon or orange juice.
The Caribbean Patacone recipes may seem easy, but they require patience and practice. Patience, since it takes time to make a delicious sandwich, as well as practice because every guest will eventually end up eating one. And practicing makes perfect in this case because after a while, the secret to making a delicious Caribbean Patacone Sandwich will become evident to you.
