Need a quickie???

Need a fast and easy lunch or dinner idea??? Well I have got the perfect, yummiest, most mouth watering  sandwich for you!!! Warning..... may cause weight gain but honestly its worth it:)

Sandwich #1

Of course if your making this amazing sandwich it helps to have some amazing canned jalapenos and spicy pickles!!

In a bowl mix one cup mayo, one chopped jalapeno, 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard and 2 cloves finely chopped garlic.

I LOVE ciabatta bread so that's what I used. Spread spicy aoli generously over the bread.

For the first sandwich I fried some bacon and then cooked my shallot chicken burger( which I get at Costco) in the bacon fat. If you don't have these just use roasted chicken or turkey. 

Place bacon and sliced pickles on one half and then the chicken and shredded cheese on the other, bake in the oven at 350 until the cheese is melted and the bread is nice and toasty!! Then pull out of the oven and put on your cold and crispy iceburg lettuce. Hungry yet??


Time to need for chips.

This one starts with steak, any steak will do. I used sirloin. Olive oil, salt and pepper is all you need, sear 4 mins on med-high on each side or until the steak is done but on the rare side.

Let steak rest while you saute one green pepper and one medium onion sliced  in the same pan you seared the steak. Add a little more olive oil to your pan and season with salt and pepper. Saute about 4 mins or until onion has some good color too it. 

 I used the same spicy aoli I used on my other sandwich and smothered the ciabatta bread with it. I then sliced the steak against the grain and placed on one side of the sandwich. Top the other side with the sauteed onion's and a heaping pile of shredded cheddar cheese.... bake at 350 until cheese is melted and bread is toasty.

Words can't express how insanely good this sandwich was, and the best part it was so quick and easy to make!!

So I  couldn't just stop at one bite and was glad I made my hubby one because I didn't want to share.
You have to make these yum and quickie sandwiches, I promise your won't be disappointed.
