Summer Time Garden, Bacon & Beef Grill

Diane Atherton


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!
