Yummy. I mean really, yummy! I actually made this sandwich a couple weeks ago, and thought it was so pretty I had to take some pictures. I am just getting around to looking at them though, and decided it was the perfect, simple recipe to share today.
After I made this I had a discussion on facebook with some friends. See my kids loved the sandwich, but they picked out all the tomatoes. I mean who does that to a perfectly good BLT? Turns out I have a lot of friends who can't stand tomatoes. I'm still baffled by that people. Just baffled!
I plan on at least 10 tomato plants this spring, and maybe more. I've even got my seeds started inside already. I feel for you that don't eat tomatoes. You are missing out, but I guess it just means more for me - huzzah!
Let's start with this bread recipe. I was browsing my "300 best Bread Machine recipes" book one day and came across one with both bacon and cheddar. Couldn't pass that up. I tweaked it a bit to what I had on hand, so here is my version of this Mock Spoon Bread (what by the way is Spoon Bread?)
Bacon Cheddar Bread Recipe
1/2 cup milk
1 package knor cream corn soup (I used the Japanese version my mother-in-law sent us.)
1/2 cup water
1 tsp salt
1 TBS honey
3 cups All purpose flour
1/2 cup bacon bits
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 tsp instant yeast
Put all the ingredients into your bread machine pan. Choose 2lb loaf, light crust, and then set for a Basic Cycle.
If you don't have a Bread Machine, good luck. ha ha, no just kidding, kind of. Mix the milk and corn soup together. In a small bowl combine the yeast and water; let sit. In a separate bowl mix the flour salt and cornmeal. Set aside.
Combine the yeast and milk mixtures. Knead in the dry ingredients. Let rise until double. I would bake at 350, and just keep an eye on it until lightly browned. Cool and Enjoy.
BLT and Swiss on Bacon Cheddar Bread
2 slices Bacon Cheddar Bread
3 slices Bacon, cooked
2 red leaf lettuce leafs
1 Roma tomato, sliced
2 slices Swiss Cheese
Salad Dressing (I interchange Mayo and Miracle Whip all the time. Choose what you like)
Spread a fair amount of the dressing on each slice of bread. Layer on the lettuce, bacon, tomato and cheese. Top with the 2nd slice of bread. Enjoy a classic!
Hamantashen - Chocolate filled almond cookies
These remind me of little chocolate filled cookies my mother in law sends us from Japan.
Overnight Blueberry French Toast
from Lemon Jelly Cake
Overnight french toast seems to be all the rage right now. This looks like a good starting recipe.
Chicken Tamale Bake
Princess C has been asking for Tamales for a month or so now. I think this take on it will be a simple solution for my 5 year old.
