Kitchen Spells...Artisan BLT Sandwiches and Pan Grilled Garden Zucchini

Hello My Friends!!!!

I am here with another Kitchen Spells Post for you....Oh my, this is super yummy and really easy to concoct!

I know you will want to give it a try so here is the recipe...from my Kitchen to Yours!

~Artisan BLT Sandwiches and Pan Grilled Garden Zucchini~
A Kitchen Spell by Dena K. Miller

Ingredients as follows:

4 slices of Italian Bread
1/2 pound of Bacon
Sliced Garden Tomatos
Sliced Red Sweet Onion
Iceberg Lettuce
Cocktail Sauce
Course Sea Salt
Cracked Pepper 

For Zucchini:

One large Garden Zucchini
One Tablespoon of Garden Seasoning
Extra Virgin Olive Oil

How to:

Begin by cooking bacon.  I take the pound package and cut it in half.

Toast Bread Slices and set aside.

While the Bacon is cooking, prepare a mixture of mayonnaise and cocktail sauce.  I use about 1 tbs of each mix this together and set aside.

Slice about two small to medium garden tomato's.

Slice one small to medium Red Sweet onion.

Slice Iceberg Lettuce and use about a handful for each sandwich.

Meanwhile, cut and slice the Garden Zucchini...truth be told, it does not matter how you do this.  I happen to like mine cut in long chunks with the skin on.
Next, prepare pan with EVOO and allow to get really hot.

Once pan is hot, place Zucchini in pan, sprinkle generously with Garden Seasoning( I purchased mine at Sam's Club, but you could use any brand or kind that has a mixture of seasoned spices).

Pan grill until tender on one side then turn over.
Again, generously coat the other side with the Garden Seasoning and continue to pan grill until tender.
Remove from pan and place on a plate, cover to keep warm and set aside.

Getting back to the bacon, cook to your liking....I like mine nice and crispy! Ha...who else is with me?
drain and set aside.
Next toast the Italian Bread then smother each slice with the mayonnaise/cocktail Sauce...btw, this mixture tastes AMAZING!!!!!
Now assemble your Sandwich! 
Begin by layering with the bacon, onions,tomato's and finally the lettuce on one slice of bread then top with another.
Do the same with the other two pieces of bread.
Plate your Artisan Sandwiches and add to it a side of the Pan Grilled Garden Zucchini.

Pour your favorite drink...perhaps some Jasmine Infused Iced Tea
and enjoy your scrumptious meal that you stirred up in no time.  

This Kitchen Spell Recipe serves two♥

  1. This looooks soooooo amazing!!! The yellow tomato is interesting, I don't think I have ever tried it before! Does it taste like the red tomatoes?
    I also LOVE my bacon nice n crispy! This looks like the perfect lunch or even snack! I can't wait for your next kitchen spells post <3

    1. Oh and it was so tasty!!!!! Hope you will try it! The yellow tomato has a bit of a different taste, I think anyway but not too, too different. Yay for another crispy Bacon Lover!!! I think it is totally awesome that way...I really cook it till it is basically falling into bits..ooohhh getting hungry just thinking about it! My kitchen smelled so good for a couple of days after cooking it. Let me know if you try the recipe, I would love to hear what you think♥
