This simple sandwich can be found in several episodes of “Boys Over Flowers” as part of the fancy lunch buffet in the Shinwa High School Cafeteria.
Shinwa High School Open-faced Sandwiches
- 1 Baguette
- Mayonnaise, or your favorite spread
- Cheddar Cheese AND/OR Yellow & Orange Sweet Peppers
- Leafy Green
- Genoa Salami OR Pepperoni
Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Slice the baguette at a slight diagonal into 1/2″ thick pieces. Arrange the pieces on a baking tray & spread the tops with mayo. If you’re using cheddar, place thin slices of the cheese on top of the bread. Bake for about 5-6 minutes or until lightly crispy. Remove from the oven & let cool just a little.
If you’re using sweet peppers (which I highly recommend) slice off the tops & cut down the middle. Remove the seeds & flatten the pepper halves. Place 1 half on top of each slice of bread & then top that with a piece of leafy green. Place a folded over pepperoni or genoa salami on top of each sandwich, securing it all with little wooden picks.
