Preparation Time:
8 portions
Metric Imperial

Ingredients

  • 4 large slices of white or whole wheat bread, crustless (tramezzini-style), sliced lengthwise*
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened

CHICKEN FILLING

  • 1 1/2 cup cooked chicken, cut into pieces
  • 3 tbsp plain Greek yogourt
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp pesto
  • 1/2 tbsp maple syrup (preferably golden syrup for its delicate flavour)

HAM FILLING

  • 1 1/2 cup cooked ham, Black Forest or old-fashioned
  • 3 tbsp plain Greek yogourt
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp pickles, chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp maple syrup (preferably golden syrup for its delicate flavour)
  • Pepper, to taste

TOFU FILLING

  • 1 2/3 cup extra-firm tofu, blotted dry and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogourt
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp chives, minced
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tbsp maple syrup (preferably golden syrup for its delicate flavour)
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • Pepper, to taste

CHEESE TOPPING

  • 1/2 brick cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 log creamy goat cheese, softened
  • 1/2 tbsp maple syrup (preferably golden syrup for its delicate flavour)
  • 1 tbsp hot water
  • Your choice of garnishes: parsley or mesclun, thin slices of radish, shoots of radish or other vegetables, spirals of beet or carrot, cherry tomatoes, rosettes of smoked salmon.

Method

  1. Prepare the three first fillings. For the chicken and ham, blend all ingredients in a food processor for a few seconds (more or less, depending on desired texture). You can do the tofu in the food processor or simply crumble it by hand and use a spoon to mix with the other ingredients. Set fillings aside.
  2. Mix all cheese topping ingredients with a spoon until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Butter all 4 slices of bread on one side.
  4. Assembly: Place first slice of bread (butter side up) on a serving plate and spread the chicken filling evenly all over it. Place second slice of bread on top and spread with ham filling. Position third slice of bread and spread with tofu filling. Cover with fourth slice of bread and spread with cheese topping.
  5. Garnish as desired.
  6. Refrigerate until time to serve.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

* Instead of tramezzini-style bread, you can use 8 slices of square (sandwich) bread with the crusts removed. Use two slices per layer.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
