BLC Sandwich on Olive Bread

Sometimes around the holiday's when everything is a little crazier than usual it's good to pull out the fancy sandwich recipes.  Eating a sandwich for dinner can sometimes feel unsatisfying, but not if it is a BLC on olive bread.  This is a great way to make a fun dinner yet save that extra hour for wrapping, cookie baking or even just relaxing in front of the DVR.

Makes 1 Sandwich

BLC on Olive Bread

1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon honey
2 slices (3/4 inch thick) olive bread
1 1/2 ounces sharp cheddar, thinly sliced
1 long piece roasted red peppers (or sundried tomatoes)
2 leaves Romaine lettuce
2 slices thick cut bacon

In a small ramekin, combine butter and honey; set aside.  Lightly toasts bread slices.  Remove one slice from toaster and reserve; on the other, add a layer of cheese.  Toast or broil briefly, until cheese begins to melt.

Spread the honey butter on the reserved slice of bread, then top with red pepper, lettuce and bacon.  Press down to secure the filling while cutting sandwich in half.
