Blazing Buffalo Chicken Melt

Sooooo this sandwich happened yesterday during my first lunch at home in Florida . . .

and it tasted fantastic thanks to Boar’s Head’s Blazing Buffalo Style Roasted Chicken Breast.

This chicken is one of my favorite deli meats, and I just so happened to find the perfect toppings to complement the smoky, spicy chicken. Turkey bacon, pepper jack cheese, and Kurtz’s Southwest Chipotle mustard hit the spot.

You should have seen me trying to fit this monster sandwich in my mouth. Onions and peppers started shooting out of the toasted Nature’s Own thin-sliced bagel while hot cheese burned my fingers. The scene wasn’t pretty, but I was having one of those I’m-so-hungry-I-could-eat-a-horse moments. You know – those times when you inhale your food so fast that you don’t even realize your stomach is full.

My appetite was raging yesterday. I seemed to eat anything and everything in sight, which probably explains why I loaded my sandwich with so many ingredients. I didn’t even mention the black-bean salsa, baby carrots and FOUR different types of hummus I snacked on in addition to the melt.

I must say that ALDI is now my go-to place for hummus when I’m home. The quartet is cheap, delicious and keeps my taste buds guessing.

Anyway, I’m sure you want to know how to make this sandwich for yourself, so I won’t keep you waiting!
