Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • Loaf of French bread
  • Bacon, cooked to your liking
  • Tomatoes, sliced
  • Fresh mozzarella sliced
  • Lettuce or fresh spinach
  • Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • Optional: Italian seasoning, pepper
Instructions
  1. Broil the bacon in the oven until crispy. Set it aside to cool, and you either keep it in strips or crumble it if you prefer.
  2. Slice the French loaf along the long edge and fold open.
  3. Melt a tablespoon of butter and minced garlic together, and brush over the open French loaf.
  4. Spread a light layer of mayo on both sides.
  5. Lay a layer of fresh lettuce (I prefer using fresh spinach) on both sides.
  6. Add a layer of your cooked sliced bacon on both sides.
  7. Add a few sliced tomatoes to both sides.
  8. Sprinkle any last seasonings on before adding the sliced mozzarella. The thinner you slice it, the better. If you need to place your fresh mozzarella in the freezer for 5-10 minutes first, it is a little easier to slice that way.
  9. Broil your decorated loaf on high on the middle shelf for 2-3 minutes, until the cheese becomes melted, but before anything starts to get burned.
  10. Slice and enjoy!

    1. Looks great & simple – the tip for refrigerating the cheese for easy cutting is a time safer.Will have to try it.

  1. This looks so amazing! One of my sons wants to eat a bacon sandwich every day when he gets home from school…I’m going to have to try this recipe just for him!
