Mofo Case # 12 Breaking News Press Conference and a Bread of Lies

We interrupt this blog with breaking LIVE news from a LIVE Press Conference and statement from the family of Missing Blogger, GiGi.
Then we will return  to your regularly scheduled recipe.

Food Chosen For a Press Conference 
Regularly Scheduled Recipe below
Pan Bagna is a very nice sandwich that originated in Nice. Pan Bagna means moist bread, or bathed bread. Crusty bread is often filled with a bunch of Nice fresh produce. After the sandwich is prepared it is a Nice thing to put several weighty objects atop the bread, much like a tofu press. A good weighty object to use would be something like Tolstoy's "War and Peace" or the vegan War and Peace equivalent, Isa Moskowitz's "Veganomicon".
Although we do have a copy of Veganomicon we did not have hours to weight down the sandwiches. We were pressed for time so came up with Cheater Pan Bagna.

Cheater Pan Bagna or Bread of Lies
4 crusty Italian breads or 2 packages TJ's bake it Italian Bread 
Tahini dressing of your choice with a squeeze of lime
1 16 ounce jar of hearts of palm drained and spears halved
4-5 heirloom tomatoes sliced
half a jar of 6.5 kalamata olives drained
3 avocados
enough arugula for each sandwich
TJ's vegan shreds or Daiya shreds

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment or foil. Cut each bread in half horizontally and then slice vertically. Line bottom of the breads next to each other.
Pour dressing evenly onto each bread. Add each ingredient to each bread. Top off with bread and cut in half. Here is the faker cheater part. Hold the top of the bread down, suffocating the bottom of the sandwich for about 40 seconds. Bake for 6 minutes until the cheez is drippy and as a cheezy as a lawyer.


  1. That bread and sammie sounds amazing. Cheating or lying, I would still indulge in it if I could! Larry had a simple, yet effective statement! LOL

  2. He could be innocent, he could be lying. Sammy could be made GF :)

  3. Wow that looks incredible! I want that right now!

    1. Thank you for stopping by to help find GiGi.

  4. It has occurred to me that GiGi went missing long before mofo. In fact, she hasn't been posting in a really long time. I think Larry knows something, but I don't think based on his innocent voice, that her disappearance is his fault. My jar of kalamata olives is from Costco and contains 59.91 oz. hahaha. That would be some sandwich.

    1. Your jar would cater a press conference for the pope.
      Sources have tried to edit the recipe to read 6.5 oz jar of kalamata olives, but Blogger is having none of it. You are a very good spy, you solved a lentil case as well, and perhaps a nutcase.

  5. Please note that the above recipe should read 6.5 oz jar of kalamatas, not a huge Cosco jar. Thank you.

  6. For Jerry's sake, I hope it wasn't Larry. With his mummy already gone, I don't think the poor tyke could take it!
