I often profess my love for sandwiches. There are so many sandwich combinations you can make that it would really be hard to tire of them. Summer is also a great time to have sandwich fixings on hand for quick lunches or dinners in between trips to the lake or pool.

“Too few people understand a really good sandwich.”

— James Beard
A hand holding a sandwich and a craft beer off to the side.

What craft beer pairs well with BBQ Chicken & Bacon Sandwiches:

The beer: Floridian Hefeweizen from Funky Buddha.

I fell in LOVE with this one while we were down in Florida on vacation. It’s a light drinkable beer that’s full of citrus notes and is similar to the blonde styles that I love so much.

What should I watch on TV while eating a sandwich?

Of course, this Mitten Movie Night HAS to be all about binging Stranger Things. While I didn’t make an Indiana Themed menu as I did for Season One, this chicken sandwich is tasty no matter where you live.

How to make BBQ Chicken & Bacon Sandwiches:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

This recipe uses already cooked chicken breasts. Cooking up a few in the crock-pot then shredding is a quick meal must!

On a sheet pan split 6 brioche hamburger buns in half. Butter the tops and place face down on one half of the pan. Place the bottom half on the plan and spread the shredded cheese evenly between the 6 bottom sides.

How to prepare chicken sandwiches for baking.

Top with the precooked shredded chicken, splitting the chicken evenly over the bottoms.

Place in the oven and bake 12 minutes.

Cook the bacon to the desired doneness then remove and drain on a paper towel covered plate.

Quick Coleslaw Recipe:

In a small bowl combine the coleslaw mixture, mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard and sugar.

Making it up to a half hour early and placing in the refrigerator makes sure all the flavors meld together beautifully.

Coleslaw makes for a great BBQ chicken sandwich topping. It’s creamy and crunchy and best of all, easy to make. Placing homemade coleslaw on top of a sandwich takes you to pinnacle sandwich Nirvana.

How to assemble BBQ chicken sandwiches

Now it’s time to assemble these BBQ Chicken Sandwich with coleslaw.

Top the baked bottom half of the sandwich with BBQ sauce of your choice. Add the coleslaw. Now the bacon. Finally, more BBQ Sauce.

Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad #SundaySupper

Pecan Crusted Salad is full of flavor! Chicken, romaine lettuce, crunchy apples, dried cranberries, and an apple cider vinaigrette.

Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Next week is Thanksgiving already! Can you believe it?  Time to hit the ground running with the shopping, baking, school activities, and family gatherings wouldn’t it be nice to sit back and relax and still have a filling and satisfying meal that won’t weigh you down?  This salad is very easy and perfect to make between all the hustle and bustle.

Coating the chicken breasts in a pecan and cheddar mixture just adds an almost buttery crunch to it.  Then you get a sweet bite of apple and cranberries.  Add the creamy zing of the vinaigrette.  It just hits all the right notes.  Did I also mention that it’s really quite easy to make?  Yes, yes I did.

Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad | Bottom Left of the Mitten

How to make Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad:

Start by heating your oven to 375 degrees.  Taking the 2 chicken breasts split them down the center so you have 4 total thinner pieces.

In a food, processor chop add the nuts and the cheddar cheese.  Pulse until it has been finely chopped together.  Take a plate and add the flour.  Whisk one egg in a bowl.   Then on the final plate add the pecan & cheddar mixture.

On a baking sheet add parchment paper or tin foil, spray with cooking spray then get ready to assemble the chicken.

Dredge the chicken in the flour on both sides.  Now dip into the egg.  Finally, cover the whole chicken piece with the pecan/cheddar mix.  Place on a baking sheet.  Repeat with the last 3 pieces.

Place in the oven for 35 minutes.  Make sure to check and make sure chicken is cooked completely through before serving.

Chop the lettuce and apple and add them to a large salad bowl.  Sprinkle with dried cranberries and sunflower seeds.  Slice or chop the chicken and add to the salad.

Serve the dressing on the side or drizzle over as much as you or your guests like.

Memphis Hot Dogs #SundaySupper

Let’s agree that bacon is amazing.  And bacon wrapped anything is again, pretty amazing.  What about all beef hot dog wrapped in bacon then drizzled with a vinegary BBQ sauce?  CAN ANYTHING GET MORE AMAZING?  Try these Memphis Hot Dog and see.

Memphis Hot Dogs ready to eat!

For another Sunday Supper I actually made Michigan Hot Dogs and as I mentioned, they are not really from Michigan! I also realized there are so many different types of hot dogs! One that looks especially good are these Memphis hot dogs.  Not only is it wrapped in bacon it’s also a specialty of a place that I really enjoy visiting.

My husband and I visited the Memphis/Tunica area this March for a small trip before we moved into our new house.  While traveling my husband loves to visit area Costco’s.  I keep joking that he needs to get a punch card of locations so that he can mark them off his bucket list.  What was really exciting though was right next to the Costco was….a Brand New IKEA!  It was kismet considering that in just a few weeks were moving.  Of course, I also needed to pick up a few jars of lingonberries too!

Memphis Hot Dogs ready to eat!

Since we do not have a grill I made these Memphis hot dogs in the oven.  The bacon came out nice and crisp!

How to make Memphis Hot Dogs:

Take the hot dogs, I use Nathan’s because they are the best, and wrap a piece of bacon around each one.

Place on a greased pan then cook in a preheated 375-degree oven for 12 minutes.

Now put the hot dogs under the broiler of your oven for 1 minute, turn them then broil for one minute more.

Bacon wrapped hot dogs in buns with BBQ sauce, cheese and green onions off to the side.

Once they are done add them to the buns.

Top off these Memphis hot dogs with chopped green onions, cheddar cheese, and some Memphis Style BBQ Sauce.  I used my sauce recipe since it is on the vinegary side, which is what Memphis Style BBQ sauces are based on.

And here you are…..
