As I mentioned last week, my apparent obsession with bacon and tomatoes continues. No, I’m once again not providing the healthiest of recipes. But, boy, this is a yummy sandwich. And it’s got olives in it, which is another ingredient that I’ve been eating tons of lately.
This blend is on my heavy rotation list for sandwich fillers. I love the combination of the green onions with the olives. Add bacon and tomatoes to the mix, and what could be better?
Cheesy Bacon and Tomato Sandwich
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar
3 oz softened cream cheese
3-5 T sliced green onions
1 small can sliced black olives, drained
1 T mayonnaise
2 t mustard
10 chopped Roma tomatoes (or scoop out several regular tomatoes)
10 slices of cooked and crumbled bacon
Preheat oven to 350. Combine the ingredients and spread them on the bread. Place on a baking sheet in oven for 5-10 minutes (depending on the thickness of your bread) or until heated through.
It’s also great as an open-faced sandwich on a thick bread like French bread or sliced sourdough.
If y’all are lucky, maybe I’ll have gotten over my bacon obsession by next week and move on to something healthy. :) Of course, you can always substitute turkey bacon, exchange the mayo for low fat mayo, and use American Neufchâtel instead of cream cheese to make it a little bit healthier.
