Jag's Hot Rump Sandwich
by SuSu, Iella
The key to any girl's heart? Good food! That's what Jag's mother had told her son about how Soontir Fel had managed to catch her, the famous holostar. The senior Fel didn't have much to offer, other than his fame as the Empire's ace, and his deep devotion; in fact, Syal Antilles didn't want to marry him, for her brother was the Alliance ace, and she knew she may find herself hating her brother for killing her husband, or the other way 'round. But she finally relented, and Jag's mother spoke affectionately of the Corellian farmboy's affection for food and his ability to raise anything. Now that Jag was "of age," he started to understand how powerful the draw of good food was for his formerly famous glamor-queen mother.
He re-created this very masculine meat and gravy sandwich for Jaina, but made it lighter by using turkey instead of the traditional male rump roast of his upbringing. He also used half the bread, so Jaina wouldn't get too full, too fast. He decided to use a gravy perfumed with bacon, mushrooms and milk to draw her to the table. Finally, he made it messy to eat, so that she'd be forced to sit and linger with him. And the longer she sat and shared a meal with him, the better his chances to win her!
So, when Jaina admired his "rump" when she made her choice of paramours, it wasn't necessarily the one behind Jag she was talking about it was likely the sandwich he created, just for her!
Into the hot bacon fat, add the butter, then cook the mushrooms till they are soft and limp. Remove the mushrooms to a bowl, but leave the fat in the pan. Sprinkle it all over with the flour. You'll need to stir with a whisk to avoid lumps, and don't burn the flour as you cook it. When it smells "nutty" and browns slightly, carefully whisk in the milk a quarter-cup at a time. You'll get a smooth, thick gravy. Add grated cheese and stir to melt it into the sauce. Add the mushrooms back into the sauce and stir. Set the gravy aside.
If you wish, you can garnish with a slice or scattering of grated cheese. Put the whole dish under the broiler and cook till the top is speckly-browned and starting to get crusty and bubbly. Serve immediately with a knife and fork, and maybe extra bread for sopping up the extra gravy.
Makes 4 open-faced sandwiches.
VARIATION: For big eaters (or maybe to force your paramour to share a plate with you), put two slices of bread on a big plate or small platter, and assemble the sandwich with twice the ingredients, and serve.
