Bacon Double Cheese Sandwich
Active Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes • Serves: 4
8 slices Schnucks hardwood smoked bacon (about ½ pound)
Schnucks nonstick cooking spray
1 loaf (16 ounces) Schnucks Bakery 9-grain multi bread, cut into 8 3/4- to 1-inch slices
1/3 cup Schnucks real mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Schnucks Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons Schnucks hot sauce
8 slices Schnucks sliced pepper Jack cheese
1 cup Schnucks finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 avocado, pitted, peeled and cut into 12 wedges
1 medium tomato, cut into 8 slices
1. Preheat oven to 425°F. On microwave-safe large plate, lay bacon in single layer between double layers of paper towels. Cook in microwave oven on high 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown and crisp, checking every 30 seconds during last 2 minutes of cooking. Carefully transfer from paper and plate to wire rack to cool. Cut each slice crosswise in half.
2. Meanwhile, lightly spray both sides of bread slices with cooking spray. Place slices on large rimmed baking pan and bake 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown on both sides, turning once halfway through cooking.
3. In small bowl, stir mayonnaise, mustard and hot sauce until well combined. Leave bread on pan and spread about 2 teaspoons mayonnaise mixture on top of each slice of bread. Lay 1 slice of Jack cheese over mayonnaise mixture. Evenly divide Cheddar cheese over Jack cheese.
4. Bake sandwiches 4 to 5 minutes longer or until cheese melts. Evenly divide bacon slices, avocado wedges and tomato slices between 4 bottom halves of sandwiches. Place 4 top halves, cheese side down, over tomatoes to close sandwiches. With serrated knife, cut each sandwich diagonally in half to serve.
