About Me

choosing food suppliers for a non-profit camp

I have spent endless hours searching for food suppliers to purchase the food for the non-profit campground that I help run through the summer. I have learned that all pricing is different from supplier to supplier and so is the quality of the food that they offer. It has taken a very long time for me to learn what to get from a big food supplier and when to purchase things from a smaller supplier. To learn my methods of ordering food on a very tight budget for hundreds of people, visit my website. There, you will find a breakdown of my supplies and the suppliers that I use to get what I need each summer.

Creative Corned Beef Sandwich Ideas

by Layla Watson

Traditionally eaten on St. Patrick's Day alongside boiled cabbage and red potatoes, corned beef is a salt-cured meat. The beef gets its unique, savory flavor from a mixture of pickling spices, such as coriander seeds, thyme, allspice berries, bay leaves, dill seeds, peppercorns, whole cloves and celery seeds.

If you have a lot of corned beef, like that available fromCity Foods Inc/Bea's Best, leftover from a meal,  transform it into a variety of creative sandwiches that are ideal for lunches or light dinners. Keep in mind that cooked corned beef will last in a refrigerator for three to four days, and in a freezer for approximately three months. Make sure the meat is tightly sealed in foil, plastic containers or freezer storage bags for the freshest taste.

Here are some tasty corned beef sandwich ideas:

1. Corned Beef Sliders

These mini sandwiches will work as either a light lunch or on a party appetizer tray. To make the sliders, slice mini hamburger buns, biscuits, kaiser rolls, or any other type of bread you'd like and spread a thin layer of spicy deli mustard on one side.

Cut the leftover corned beef into thin slices and place at least 2-to-3 of them on each slider, Top the meat with a slices of sharp cheddar cheese - you can either serve the sandwiches cold or toast them in your oven until the cheese is melted.

2. Corned Beef Hash Breakfast Muffins

For a hearty breakfast, turn the leftover corned beef into hash by cutting it into small cubes and mixing it with diced, boiled potatoes. Form the meat and potato mixture into hamburger-style patties and fry them in a frying pan until they're golden brown on each side.

Next, toast sliced English muffins and lightly butter each half. To assemble a sandwich, top one half of the muffin with a corned beef hash patty and follow it with a fried egg. You can also add any type of sliced cheese if you desire. Set the other half of the muffin on top of the egg to finish the sandwich. 

3. Corned Beef Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

For a delicious sandwich will that will please both kids and adults, butter one piece of rye bread and place it into a hot pan butter-side down. Top the bread with slices of corned beef and any type of cheese you prefer, such as sharp cheddar, havarti or provolone. Customize your grilled cheese by adding sauerkraut or sliced pickles, and top it with another piece of buttered rye bread.

Grill the sandwich on each side until its golden brown and the cheese is melted.
