FFWD ~ Tartine de Viande des Grisons


Tartine deViande des Grisons

This week, for French Fridays I was gifted with a non-recipe! It took no time to put together, and didn’t even interfere with my walks on the beach! After two weeks in Florida, we will be heading north tomorrow.  First to Atlanta, to say good-by to my son and his family, and then on to New Jersey to get ready for Christmas! The weather has been unseasonably warm here for the beginning of December.  We are sure to miss the warmth and sunshine, once we get home to face the cold of winter! Now, on to the recipe…or non-recipe!

Whether you call it a Tartine or a sandwich…call it tasty!

Our FF pick for this week is for a Tartine, French for sandwich. The Tartine de Viande des Grisons is an open faced sandwich, calling for a nice rustic bread, toasted on one side, in a fry pan with a little olive oil. The bread is then smeared with some butter, and a layer of prosciutto is placed on top. It is then drizzled with a bit more olive oil, and scattered with chopped nuts. This was really easy, and definitely a non-recipe! In spite of that, it was quite enjoyable as an afternoon snack!  That’s it folks!  
While you are reading this post, I will be in the car driving north! I plan on catching up with everyone over the weekend! Happy Friday! 
This non-recipe can be found in Dorie Greenspans cookbook, “Around My French Table”. To see what the other Doristas thought of this one, check it out here.


A lovely afternoon snack
 Sunrise at Seaside beach…I will miss you!

  2. I'm enjoying some family time in Denver...but since my brain is stuck in the Eastern time zone, I have a little time to visit my Dorista friends! I, too, was thrilled with an easy recipe. Safe travels, my friend!

  6. Oh, yes, you will miss that lovely sunset. I am glad you had wonderful weather for your all-too-short visit to the beach. Although we received serious snow prior to Thanksgiving, we are woefully short on the stuff right now. It's time to do a snow dance here in the mountains but I suspect you still have snow cover in NJ. This was a non-recipe, for sure although it took me some time to source the air-dried beef. Yours looks lovely. You'll be home in time for the tagine. Safe journey.

  12. Santa was generous with his selections this month! I think he knew that everyone could use a non-recipe after last week's feasting. Glad you enjoyed it. I wish you safe travels on your journey home. Have a great weekend.

  14. Lovely sunset. I was also grateful for an easy one this week after all the Thanksgiving cooking. Such an easy and tasty idea. I love these recipes which are more ideas for flavor combinations than anything else. In fact, I'm sitting here munching on a tartine with parma and walnuts this morning for breakfast, so tasty!

  17. Nothing more divine than those french tartines! Your version is easy and delicious, Kathy. Loved Dorie's cranberry crackle pie too...copied it for next year! I don't have her new book.
    Pleased you had such great weather here...I do love Florida. After 40 some years here, I love to visit my home state of Michigan, but am a Floridian at heart now.
