The Ultimate Bacon-Leftovers Sandwich

Ingredients for one sandwich:

  • 1 baguette
  • 2 slices of bacon, fried and diced
  • 1-2 slices of cooked chicken leftovers, cut small
  • 1-2 slices of ham, diced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • paprika

Fry the bacon over high heat until it gets really crispy, then dice it. It’s much better to fry the whole bacon slices rather than dice them prior to frying, because you’ll end up with much less oil in your food.

In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise with parsley, chicken bits, ham and bacon. Add a teaspoon of mustard. Mix it very well, until it looks like a creamy sauce with bits of meat in it.

Slice a pocket in the baguette, spoon the mayonnaise mix inside and sprinkle some paprika on top.

I love this sandwich recipe because it helps me “clean” the fridge after Christmas and other holidays, when we usually end up with lots of chicken, turkey or ham leftovers. Occasionally, I like to chop a small red onion and mix it into the mayonnaise dressing.
