The is right you can read, a lambwich is a lamb sandwich.  Anyways I had to use up the rest of the huge lamb leg that I received from a friend and to eat it all before it went bad was quite a challenge.  It was very large and luckily pre-roasted so it was just a matter of carving and creating many different dishes with lamb meat all week long.  On the last day of lamb I created these lovely gourmet lambwiches for my lovely friend Alaina and I (check out her blog, she is an amazing artist).  This was Friday night and we decided to stay in due to a long and tiring week, Alaina also brought over some wonderful goodies from the bakery she works at including the awesome ciabatta bread we used for the sandwiches.  Now I do understand that sandwiches are easy to make but sometimes recipes for them are nice so you can spice up your sandwich world.  While eating we watched the social network finally....what a weird movie.  Ok, on to the sandwich:

Serves 2

The Ingredients4 slices ciabatta bread
3 tablespoons mayonaise
1/3 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
1/2 large zucchini, sliced 1/2 inch thick, long way for slabs
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 large tomato, chopped
4 oz lamb leg, shredded (cooked)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
salt and pepper to salt

The Process
1.  In small container or bowl mix vinegar, oil, mustard, and garlic.  Add zucchini and let marinate at least 15 minutes.

2.  In mean time chop up tomatoes and shred lamb.  Turn on oven to 350 degrees.

3.  Put zucchini mix in roasting pan and roast about 7 minutes, or until mostly cooked.

4.  In the mean time take one two slices of ciabatta and put mayo on each then sprinkle each with cheese and toast until cheese is melted and golden brown.  With the other two slices, put mayo on them and put them in toaster as well.

5.  Also heat up lamb however you want to. 

6.  To assemble lambwich: take one slice of toasted ciabatta with cheese add several slices of roasted zucchini and garlic, 2oz lamb, top with tomatoes and salt and pepper, and then put toasted ciabatta with mayo on top. Done!

I would say that perhaps this is a fat kid recipe with the ciabatta, cheese, mayo, and fatty lamb but is was really good.  Also it would be nice with a bitter green salad.
