These days, we’ll be creating a dish from my eating place and meals truck, Clara B’s Kitchen Desk. It will pay homage to the vintage soup and sandwich mixture whilst additionally providing some dynamic flavors — from the buttery spice of the candy potato bisque to the creamy nuttiness of the ham and Gruyere sandwich.
To make the entirety just a little more straightforward, I like to recommend measuring out and slicing all your substances (but even so the apples and candy potatoes, as they have a tendency to oxidize) sooner than you start. If you happen to get ready the apples and candy potatoes prematurely, retailer them in water till they’re in a position to make use of.
Highly spiced Candy Potato Bisque
First, we’ll position a big pot over medium-high warmth at the range. Whilst the pot heats up, peel and chop the candy potatoes into cubes.

Subsequent upload the olive oil, candy potatoes and onion into the pot, stirring to coat the entirety in oil. Whilst it simmers, peel and cube your apple. I’d move with a sweeter, much less tart apple.
Subsequent, upload the garlic, habanero and inventory. Habaneros are highly spiced, so put on gloves in case you have them and you’ll want to take away the seeds and pith of the pepper, which dangle probably the most warmth. If you wish to use a much less highly spiced pepper, I like to recommend a Serrano.
Subsequent, we’ll upload our spices: coriander, ginger and smoked paprika. Practice with maple syrup and heavy cream, and provides the soup a excellent stir. For vegans and the ones with dairy intolerances, coconut milk works neatly right here.
Let the soup simmer over medium warmth for 25 mins.
Toasted Ham and Gruyere Sandwiches
Whilst the soup simmers, we’ll transfer directly to our sandwiches. I really like brioche for sandwiches — it’s eggy, wealthy and buttery. This sandwich balances melty, wealthy Gruyere and savory ham with the candy, fruity fringe of apricot jam — a jam we make in space, made with just a little of onion, bourbon and brown sugar. However be happy to make use of whichever jam you favor.
Set your griddle (or pan) over medium warmth. Whilst that heats, we’ll compile our sandwiches. Butter the bread, layer at the Gruyere and ham, and lather one aspect with jam. Position the sandwich at the griddle, butter aspect out, and let it prepare dinner till all sides are golden brown, flipping midway via.
End off the soup
Now we’ll go back to the soup, which has been simmering to the aspect for 25 mins. Upload a marginally of apple cider vinegar for brightness, and apply with recent floor black pepper and salt to style.
Fill the blender a bit over midway. Check out to not fill it the entire strategy to the highest or scorching soup will likely be compelled out of the blender. Mix till clean. The soup must be buttery, savory and candy, with simply the correct quantity of warmth.
And there you may have it — our Toasted Ham and Cheese with Highly spiced Candy Potato Bisque. Revel in!
