I have a favorite sandwich at Perkins and I hardly ever get there so I decided to try to imitate one at home the other night. Honestly how hard could it be to make a sandwich? Not to hard thankfully! It wasn’t quite as good as there’s as they have the yummy chicken strips that are deep fried and totally unhealthy for you, but besides that I thought this sandwich was great.
The best thing is it’s totally adaptable to whatever you want. If someone doesn’t like something or wants to add another topping it’s easy to do and you don’t feel like a short hand cook when meal time comes along.
I used my Oven Baked Bacon on these sandwiches and it was great. I like my bacon nice and crispy and this definitely got it crispy!
