It's Stupid How Good This Sandwich Is


I promised my little brother I would use his words to title this post.  He even suggested that instead of a guest chef, I feature him as a guest eater so he could tell everyone just how good it is.  If that isn't a glowing recommendation, I don't know what is. 

I drew my inspiration from The Pioneer Woman's Second Favorite Sandwich.  Fry up four or five pieces of bacon.  Leave some of the bacon grease in the pan.  Season a couple of chicken breasts with lemon pepper and then cook them until done in the frying pan.  Let them cool and then thinly slice them. 

Get out your panini press (or a pan over the stove top and something heavy to put on top of the sandwich).  Brush one side of two slices of sourdough bread with olive oil.  Spread honeycup mustard on the first slice.  On top of that put as much chicken, bacon, avacado, tomato, and cheddar cheese as you like.  Cook it up on the panini press until the cheese is melted and voila: heaven.

I was given a blog award and asked to pass it on to 15 other blogs I enjoy. I chose yours as one of them. My favorite recipes are the lemon cake and ravioli bake. Thanks for the recipes. If you can, pass it on to 15 other bloggers. Thanks again.

Seriously you were right, I love it! I didn't have bacon, but I did drizzle a little balsamic dressing. YUM!

Ok, so what sort of heavy object would you suggest putting on top of the sandwhich if I don't have a press?

I am making your stacked enchiladas for two of my friends who just had babies tomorrow:)

A cast iron skillet would work.

Why you gotta make fun of Sandwiches. What did it do to you? Didn't you serve a mission?

It was in fact stupid how good that sandwich was, Garrett was right. I used a George Foreman and just manually pressed down on it until the cheese melted and it worked great. (I don't have a panini press OR a cast iron skillet) And I used munster cheese instead of cheddar. And where do you buy Honeycup mustard?
