To make the ultimate sandwich, the devil is in the detail – and this one is sinfully good! Crispy bacon with a sweet chilli coating, golden toasted bread and crisp, perfectly seasoned salad and herbs to top it off… lunchtime never looked so good.
10 slices thinly cut bacon
1 large tomato, sliced
4 slices sourdough bread (or your preferred bread)
½ cup mixed salad leaves
¼ cup sliced iceberg lettuce
2 tbsp finely sliced spring onion (scallions)
2 tbsp finely sliced coriander (cilantro)
4 slices Swiss cheese
Preheat oven to 180°C/360°F.
Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place strips of bacon on the lined tray. Brush both sides with Coconut Sweet Chilli sauce. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until crispy at the edges.
In the meantime, season the tomato slices with salt and set aside for 10 minutes.
Butter the bread on one side and panfry that side in a frying pan over medium heat until golden and just starting to char at the edges.
Mix the salad leaves with the iceberg lettuce, spring onion and coriander.
Spread one piece of bread liberally with Coconut Sweet Chilli sauce. Top with the salad mixture. Then top with tomato slices. Top with hot bacon and place the cheese slices on the warm bacon. Spread the remaining piece of bread with Coconut Sweet Chilli sauce and place on top.
