BOLM Sandwiches and Potato Skins
May 22 2014
I haven’t done much cooking out for the past two weeks. I have been busy with yard work and getting my garden in and flowers planted. My wife has been providing supper; carry ins mostly from my friend Sandman’s carry out. Last night I had a Ham & cheese sub and a potato skin. Sandman makes his potato skins with some good cheese and his home cured and smoked bacon. They are delicious.
It was a wonderful day to be out and working; a sunny 75 deg. with a nice breeze. After running some errands this am I cut some drip hose to use for my tomatoes in my raised garden and I got the last of my flowers planted. It was about 3:00 when I finished.
I was planning on carry ins again for supper but I had some of my butcher’s bacon and some buns left. A BOLM, bacon, onion, lettuce and mustard sandwich sounded good. I would rather have a BLT but can’t take the hot house tomatoes. So this is the best for me, a BOLM
I got the bacon on my Traeger a little after 3:00 and took just about an hour, half at 250 deg. and then 350 deg. to get the way we like it. I had 8 slices so we each got 4 long slices for our sandwich.
About 5:30 we each made our own sandwich. For mine the bacon equaled two half slices wide stacked 4 high just about right. I put the mustard on the bun first, the bacon, a slice of Vidalia onion, some Tatonka dust, and a couple pieces of Romaine lettuce. My wife had a BLM, bacon, lettuce and mayo on hers. We both warmed up one of Sandman’s potato skins to have too.
