Klutz in the Kitchen - Guitar4Today is Frappe Day!

Golden Orange & Lemon FrappéThe name may be French (from the word “frapper,” meaning “to ice”), but history says it’s the Greeks who popularized this icy and sweet concoction during a 1957 international fair.

The frappe is a chilled foam-covered coffee drink that originated in Greece in the 1950s. Today, there are many different variations of this refreshing beverage.

In the United States, frappes are usually made with coffee, milk, ice, vanilla ice cream, and sugar combined in a blender. In other parts of the world fruit frappes are popular.

Some people pronounce it “frap” while others say “frah-pay,” but everyone can agree on the satisfying taste of this cool, creamy coffee treat. Make your own frappe today to celebrate Frappe Day!

Preparation time: 10 min

Cooking time: 10 min

Ingredients

4 slices farm bread or home made bread

Gouda, buffalo mozzarella and soft goats cheese

Crispy bacon, fried and cut in small pieces

Butter

Salt and pepper to taste

Salsa: 


5
baby tomatoes

1 handful 
basil, finely chopped

A splash of balsamic vinegar

A splash of olive oil

1 tsp 
sugar

Salt and pepper to taste

Method

Heat a frying pan on a medium-high heat.

Place the cheeses and bacon on your bread, to make two separate sandwiches.

Butter the outside of the bread, then place in the frying pan. Press down slightly with a spatula. While this side is cooking, combine all the ingredients for the salsa and allow to stand in a bowl at room temperature. Check the sandwiches – the cheese should have started to melt and the bread turn a golden brown. Once browned to your liking, turn the sandwich over and allow the other side to brown.

Remove from the pan once the bread is evenly browned and the cheese has melted. Slice the sandwiches in half, spoon over the salsa and eat immediately.
