Crispy bacon, creamy avocado and juicy tomatoes are combined in this scrumptious gruyere and avocado grilled cheese sandwich recipe!
It’s National Grilled Cheese Day y’all and I couldn’t be more excited, because, bread + butter + cheese, yes, please! Add in crispy bacon and creamy avocado and you’ve just combined everything I love into one epic grilled cheese sandwich!
Over the past week I’ve become completely obsessed with Roasted Bell Pepper and Chipotle Spread! Everything from putting it in wraps to spreading it on bagels to simply tossing it on a plain tortilla and digging in!
With the overwhelming popularity of my Chipotle Lime Chicken Skewers, I felt like a Chipotle Chicken Sandwich with the delicious chipotle spread would be a perfect match!
2 limes (juiced)
1 tbsp jalapeño liquid
1 tsp crushed garlic
1 tsp chipotle powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
2 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
3 slices cooked bacon
2 hamburger buns
2 tbsp Roasted Red Bell Pepper and Chipotle Spread
1/2 cup iceberg lettuce
1 small tomato (sliced)
1/4 cup deli sliced jalapeños
Whisk the lime juice, liquid from the jar of jalapeños, crushed garlic, chipotle powder and cumin together in a small bowl.
Pour the marinade over the chicken breasts.
Coat the chicken well, then place in the refrigerator to marinate for 15 minutes.
Turn the grill on to medium and place the chicken on the grill for 10 minutes per side.
The last 3-4 minutes of grill time, add the hamburger buns to the grill to toast.
Remove the chicken and buns from the grill. Spread 1/2 tbsp of the Red Pepper Chipotle Spread on each bun.
Next, top the bottom buns with the lettuce and tomato.
Add a piece of chicken (whole or sliced, your preference!) on top of the tomatoes, then place one and a half slices of bacon on to the chicken.
On the top bun, add the jalapeños.
Place the top bun on the sandwich and dig in!
Tons of flavor in this sandwich, great crunch from the bacon and a slight heat from the chipotle chicken and spread! Overall, a winning combination!
After discovering Boston Magazine’s article on the amazing Grillo’s Pickles, I went on past the article I originally attended to read on the best burgers in Boston and continued on to the best fries in Boston.
Just 2 blocks down from Grillo’s was one of Boston’s best french fry spots. This spot was the All Star Sandwich Bar where they’re serving up delicious fried potatoes known as Hell Fries.
These cayenne pepper, cilantro and hot sauce topped fries live up to their hellish name. Order an extra ice-cold beverage on the side, you’re gonna need it!
Although I am a glutton for delicious, spicy potatoes, I knew I shouldn’t lunch on them alone. I decided to take a peak over at the sandwich menu, I mean the name of the spot is All Star Sandwich Bar, they must make some pretty killer sandwiches. And do they ever.
I wanted to try one of each! Fried Poblano Cheeseburger, BBQ Fried Chicken Bacon Melt, American Fondue Cheeseburger, how would I pick just one?
Upon the recommendation from my excellent server Brad and my crazy obsessive love for Buffalo sauce I went with the Funky Daily Special Buffalo Cheesesteak BLT. Say what? A sandwich with multiple meats, blue cheese and buffalo sauce, I’m so in!
I really can not express the excitement and anticipation that overcame me when this sandwich arrived!
And the anticipation was met with overwhelming joy after just one bite. Crispy bacon, juicy burger, creamy blue cheese and spicy buffalo sauce, quite the perfect combination and balance of amazingness!
They have tons of daily specials that I wish I had more time in Boston to try each one!
If you’re in Boston, check out your favorite daily special and let me know which you think is the best!
I’m thinking Wednesday’s Pastrami-Nater sounds right up my alley! I do have a slight obsession with the almighty pastrami sandwich though!
The decor in this little sandwich shop is cool and casual and the service was excellent. See Brad, awesome server, hard at work!
If you want to break a little sweat with some Hell Fries or chow down on an amazing sandwich special check out All Star Sandwich Bar at 1245 Cambridge St. Cambridge, MA. To view their entire menu visit their website at: AllStarSandwichBar.
The traditional BLT sandwich gets a twist with kale replacing the lettuce and caesar dressing replacing the mayo for a simple, on the go BLT caesar wrap!
Every once in a while an unplanned “what’s in the fridge?” meal turns into a new favorite and last week that most definitely happened!
I turned a classic favorite, the BLT, into a new, fun wrap with kale instead of lettuce and caesar dressing instead of mayonnaise!
1 large flour tortilla
2 tbsp caesar dressing
2 cups kale
1 tbsp olive oil
3 slices cooked bacon
1/2 cup tomatoes (sliced)
2 tbsp parmesan cheese (shredded)
Start by cooking the kale in 1 tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes. Add 1/4 cup of water and cover the skillet to steam the kale for 4-5 minutes.
Meanwhile, spread the dressing into the middle of a tortilla.
Next add the cooked kale and bacon on top.
Top with the tomatoes and parmesan cheese.
Wrap it up and dig in!
Oh my gosh, the crispness of the bacon with the mild bitterness of the kale and the creaminess of the caesar dressing, this was such a great, random concoction and I’m not going to lie to you all, I ended up making it two other times last week!
