Ever since I discovered them as a child at school, I have loved a good crisp sandwich! I can recall the memory well. I used to take a packed lunch to school which sometimes got a bit boring. It was generally some sort of fish paste but I would always liven things up a bit using some crisps. It wasn’t just about the taste – whether this was cheesy, bacony or just plain salted – it was also about the texture. The added crunch that the crisps put into the bite of the sandwich.
Seabrooks are currently running a competition over on Tots 100 to come up with a tasty and inventive sandwich (a competition that is right up my street seeing I also competed in the Ultimate Cheese Toasty a couple of months ago!).
So what was my choice? Well, for me, I really love a good BLT but I also love bacon, lettuce and avocado salad which usually includes a bit of cheese and some croutons so I wanted to choose some crisps that helped to combine the two and make it more of a meal!
Meet my entry, the Bacon Salad Extraordinaire.
This combines the following ingredients:
- Bacon (cooked until just off crispy
- Sliced Avocado
- Seabrook Cheese and Onion crisps
I used a granary ciabatta and, rather than spread it with butter, I used Olive Oil and some balsamic to add to the salad effect. I then spread on a thin covering of mayonnaise then layered it with lettuce, bacon, avocado, tomato and then the cheese and onion crisps. A real doorstep of a sandwich but my goodness, it’s tasty!
