Bacon, Avocado and Tomato

Not much of a sandwich eater.

Thanks, PF. I was wondering what to have this evening. I'll buy an avocado on the way to the stables and have bacon, avocado and tomato sandwich for supper when I get home.

Make some killer mayo by stirring in some minced garlic and a squirt or two of lime juice. Amounts depend on your garlic tolerance, and you don't want the juice to make the mayo too sour or milky. I like intense garlic, so I target 1-2 cloves per sandwich, and just a touch of lime juice (squeeze, say, a quarter lime for 2-3 large sandwiches). Spread that on both halves of your favorite crusty roll, then slap on some roasted red peppers, avocado slices, sprouts, cilantro, and thinly sliced red onions and cucumbers that have been marinated in rice wine vinegar and a bit of sugar.

I don't find meat necessary with this, but if you must use it, I'd suggest either chicken breast or pork, smashed thin, and skillet-fried with soy sauce, sriracha, lime juice, and salt/pepper. Tempeh is a great veg alternative for the meat, to get a bit of protein.

Nice!, I'm enjoying broccoli and radish sprouts on sandwiches lately, too...much more than lettuce.

Been looking for Butter lettuce to make wraps.

AWESOME, contributions guys and gals..

I was never crazy about lettuce on sandwiches, not sure why. I go through phases, I used to be all about relishes, chutney, chow chow... I used to make so many different ones, Pepper relish, sweet vidalia onion relish, sweet hot chow chow, paccalilli, berry chutney, etc, etc, etc... Now I have been doing the sweet pickle chips with banana peppers...

But I do a lot of sandwiches, the relishes are nice because lettuce, tomato and mayo gets sickening, every sandwich starts to taste the same, where if you take that normal turkey on white and add a sweet relish with a spicy cheese, you can get something different that you love...

I also love lettuce wraps, here are some cool ideas..

A favorite in our house is saved sirloin, cooked medium rare over charcoal, with mayo, or EVOO, fresh bean sprouts, and avacado slices. This could ealily be transformed into a finger sandwich.

1 slice good pepperoni, 1 slice good dry salami, 1 slice capicola, provolone cheese, extra-virgin olive oil, sliced black olives, crispy lettuce leaf cut to size, all served on potato bread dinner rolls.

Carnitas served in rolled mini flour tortilla with guacamole.

Thin sliced ham with American cheese, rolled and sliced into pinwheels, served with sliced green olives in a finger sandwich, with honey mustard.

Thin steak cut into squares to fit finger sandwiches, pan fried with S & P to rare, and put on a bun with steak sauce, and a sauted mushroom cap.

How can you have a sandwich trey without egg-salad sandwiches. Add powdered mustard to the egg salad mixture to add depth and complexity to the flavor.

Mini sloppy joes

Mini pig-in-the-blankets, made with yeast bread dough, and good hot dogs that have been cut into four pieces.

Hope that gives you some added ideas.

I spread mayo on the lettuce AFTER adding it to bread. I think the bread should not absorb the mayo sometimes.
