For the entire month of February myself and the Fandom Foodie community are celebrating Final FantaFeast by sharing recipes from the Final Fantasy franchise. I will be focusing all this month on the newest game, Final Fantasy XV.
This is one of the first meals I discovered that increases the experience gained while adventuring. Getting the recipe requires a little bit of work. First, a visit to the Wiz Chocobo Post to keep Prompto happy. There you are greeted by the friendly owner, Wiz. After a series of quests to help wild chocobo in the area, he needs some help increasing business at his cafe. Once the carboys find some Aegir Root, Wiz creates the most outstanding sandwich, the Fat Chocobo Triple-Decker.
Ignis is inspired and makes his own version of this recipe. He simply calls it a stacked ham sandwich. To recreate this towering pile of sandwich, I recommend making the four different sandwiches individually. After all four have been made, you can stack each of them with the use of bamboo sticks. Gravity in the real world will unfortunately make it hard for this delicious monstrosity to stand on its own. Unless you yourself are a fat chocobo, I’d suggest bringing along a few carboys to help eat this meal up.
1 eggplant, sliced
1 roast pepper
1 avocado, sliced
1 tomato, sliced
handful of sprouts
¼ lb ham
⅛ lb turkey
3 slices of prosciutto
4 slices of salami
4 slices of cheddar cheese
10-15 pieces of shrimp
1 green olive
Japanese mayo (can substitute with regular mayo)
4 slices of white bread
4 slices of multigrain bread
1 cup soy sauce
⅓ cup mirin (Japanese rice wine)
2 tsp rice vinegar
¼ cup sugar + 1 tbsp
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp ginger powder
In a ziplock bag combine ½ cup soy sauce, ⅓ cup mirin, 2 tsp rice vinegar, ¼ cup sugar, 1 tsp garlic powder, and ½ tsp ginger powder. Let it marinate for 30 minutes. Place a grill pan over medium-high heat. Cook the eggplant until each side has crisped up, about 4-6 minutes per side. Set aside.
In a bowl combine ½ cup soy sauce, 1 tbsp sugar, salt, and pepper. Toss the shrimp in and marinate for 30 minutes. Heat a pan over medium-high heat with 1 tbsp butter. Cook the shrimp until it turns pink, 2-3 minutes. Set aside.
It is time to work on building the four different sandwich layers. To make the bottom layer use 2 slices of multigrain bread. Add avocado, the eggplant and roasted red pepper. Top with balsamic vinegar and lettuce.
For the second sandwich, grab 2 slices of white bread. Add Japanese mayo, lettuce, ham, and prosciutto. Add another piece of lettuce and the cheddar cheese.
The third sandwich uses 2 slices of multigrain bread. Add Japanese mayo and the turkey. Top with lettuce, salami, and sprouts.
For the last sandwich grab the last 2 slices of white bread. Add Japanese mayo, tomato, and avocado. Top with shrimp and avocado.
Setting up the sandwich can be a bit tricky. I would recommend using bamboo sticks to have each of the sandwiches piled on one another.
