Sandwiches are always amazing. But you know what makes them even better? When they are hot. With melty cheese. And something spicy. Kind of like this one.
- 1 large roll
- 4 slices bacon
- 1/4-1/2 lb ham
- 2 tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp sriracha
- 2 slices white American cheese
Step 1: Fry the bacon 5-7 minutes, until crisp, and place on a paper towel to drain. Wipe or pour most of the grease out, leaving a thin layer. Place the roll in the pan cut-side down to toast. Or, you could use a toaster. Or not toast the bread at all, your call.
Step 2: In a small bowl, or right on top of the bread, mix the sriracha and mayonnaise, and spread it around. Add cooked bacon on top. On the other slice of bread, layer on the ham and cheese.
Step 3: Smush the whole thing together, and toast in the frying pan another minute or two, until the cheese gets melty.
This sandwich would also work great with turkey or chicken, and you could use whatever type of cheese you prefer. I think softer breads are better for use here, because they have a chewy interior that contrasts so well with the crunchy toasted exterior while the white American cheese is creamy enough to tame the spicy sriracha.
