Spartichoke Sandwich

You know that silly ice breaker question-- If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be? My answer HANDS DOWN would be Blue Bakers Spartichoke Sandwich.  Blue Baker is a bakery in my college town that I ate at 569337 times in the course of my 4 years at A&M. Sometimes I legitimately consider driving the 1.5 hours to College Station just to get this sandwich, but then my common sense kicks in. So I decided to crack the code and figure out how to make my own Spartichoke sandwich (Reese calls this my dinosaur sandwich--because it is a vegetarian sandwich, possibly? I really don't know why he calls it that actually).




Ingredients: 
2 slices sourdough bread
1 handful of baby spinach leafs 
1 oz of goat cheese
3 artichoke hearts separated
5 strips of roasted red pepper 
1 tablespoon of Balsamic Vinegar reduction**

** Reduce 1c balsamic vinegar and 1 tablespoon of sugar until liquid is 1/2 its volume to create reduction. 

Assemble ingredients, slice and enjoy!! 


 Doesn't this look magically delicious (err sorry a Lucky Charms commercial just came on), but really this is a magical sandwich! 

Linking up with Charlotte and Whitney!!!

Hello yum! I have a huge obsession with Blue Baker and the in laws takes us there for lunch every time we visit just knowing that I'm going to ask for it. I'm a huge fan of the Powder Blue! I've never seen the sandwich that you just recreated, but I think I need to get it next time!!!
