Diane Hopson Smith Recipe

For our sammie challenge we were given 2 ingredients to use: squash and bacon, two of my favorite foods!

What a perfect time to make this sammie with all the fresh veggies coming in. We have fresh summer squash growing in the garden and we always have bacon on hand. We had just grilled a chuck roast yesterday using Lynn Socko's wonderful recipe for "Grilled Chuck Roast".

I had never put summer squash on a sandwich before but then I thought, why not?

This turned out to be one of the tastiest sammies I've ever eat if I have to say so myself!

Hope you enjoy!


2 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
1 clove
garlic, minced
1/2 medium
onions, vidalia, sliced
green and red bell pepper, sliced
fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 large
yellow summer squash
4 slice
fried bacon
1 tsp
italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
6 oz
sliced roast (i used left over grilled chuck roast - lynn socko's recipe)
4 slice
texas toast grill and gridle bread
butter, room temperature
marble jack cheese, sliced

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat EVOO in skillet; add onions, garlic, peppers and mushrooms. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Saute just until vegetables start to get tender.
Begin heating stove top grill over a medium heat.
Once veggies start to get tender, add a layer of sliced of squash on top of the veggies; add additional seasonings and reduce heat.
Top squash with slices of beef; season. Cover pan and steam until squash just starts to get tender and beef is heated; remove skillet from heat.
Slather butter on the outsides of bread; place 2 sliced of bread (buttered sides down) in grill skillet. Top with veggies and beef. Top with bacon and cheese. Place bread (buttered side up) on top. Grill until browned and flip sammie. Grill other side until browned and cheese has melted. Remove from heat, slice and serve. Enjoy!

Great sammie Diane you are always on the ball. I have my little Reagan this week and she is keeping me rolling with her but I hope to have mine made tomarrow and I already know the ingredients and the rest of the contents to go along with it. Mine will be featuring left overs from tonight too along with my fresh squash idea and bacon.
