Chef Meg's Greek-aletta Stuffed Sandwich
NOTE; missing bread, not found in data base
I love a good sandwich, one that you have to smashed it to fit into your mouth. The traditional Muffaletta is packed with high fat cured and smoked meats, cheeses, and salty tapenade. This version gives you all the big flavor without the added fat.
If you want a vegeterian version of the recipe just omit the tuna.

Chef Meg's Slow Cooker Provencal Chicken with beans (AKA's edits)
This is Chef Meg's recipe, with a few changes. Also, I wanted to see the nutrition info for 7 servings, Chef Meg's was calculated for 6.
I would like to spice it up or etc next time. Stay tuned for a revision. I served mine with hot sauce over brown rice the first time.
I used a 3.5qt slow cooker. Chef Meg used less chicken. I had 2lbs (32oz.) on hand v.s. 24 oz.

Just a little bite but so much flavor. If you don't like heats of palm sub it out for artichokes. Use 3 whole canned artichokes and quarter.

Chef Meg's Eggplant Napoleon or Moussaka
This traditional Greek dish was one of my mothers favorites to order out. I think she always felt it was too much effort to make at home. I never order the heavy dish becuase it add to many calories to my day. Well, I solved both of the issues with this quick and healthy taste of a classic.
To soak in salt water or not. I say not! If you purchase small fresh eggplants there is no need to add this extra step.

Chef Meg's Pan Grilled Fish with Persillade
Persillade is a mixture that might look familiar to you- are you thinking Pesto or Pistou? A Persillade is used somewhat the same way as the two look alikes but what seperates it is the additon of bread crumbs and use of parsley. This is a great recipe that brings in a note of "fresh' to a dish. Try it over the fish but it works just as well over slices of toasted whole wheat breat, steamed vegetables or chicken. I used orange roughy for this recipe becasue it's mild almost sweet taste.
