Chicken Salad BLT

This is my new favorite sandwich!  I've made it for me and my hubby for lunch after church the last couple of weeks.  It's inspired by a sandwich that I had at our local eating establishment, Hill Diner.

I love BLTS and I love chicken salad sandwiches, so why not combine them?  The chicken salad in this sandwich can be as simple or as gourmet as you feel like making.  I think it's the bacon that makes so yummy!

Sorry that there aren't really any exact amounts in the "recipe".  I guess I assume that if you can cook, and if you regularly check my blog, that you're like me and just add a scoop of this and a little of that according to your taste.

Chicken Salad BLT
recipe by me, Jenny

bread, toasted
mayo (or miracle whip if that's what you like to spread on your sandwiches)
turkey bacon, cooked crisp
chicken salad

Spread mayo on one piece of the toasted bread.  Spread chicken salad on the other toasted bread.  Top the chicken salad mixture with bacon, lettuce, tomatoes and the other piece of toast.

Chicken Salad:
These are the four essential ingredients to your chicken salad (it's yummy just like this):
shredded cooked chicken (I use this shredding method)
mayo (however much you'd like, just so your chicken is nice and moist)
salt and pepper

optional ingredients that I like to add:
minced garlic, or garlic powder
squirt of lemon juice
cucumber, chopped
celery, chopped
green onions, sliced thinly
toasted sugared almonds
you could even add sliced grapes or apple

(In the picture above, my chicken salad consisted of chicken, mayo, salt and pepper, cucumber and green onions.  Delicious!)

Be creative and enjoy!

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

Havreflarn (Swedish Oat Crisp Cookies)

We had some teenagers over for a Swedish themed dinner last night.  They were participating in a "missionary for a day" activity.  They were paired up into companionships, like the official missionaries for our church and were assigned to a family for dinner.  They ate with us and then taught us a lesson about Heavenly Father's plan for us.   My husband served a mission in Sweden.  He lived there for two years and loved it.  Swedish meatballs are a staple at our house.  (They're super easy to make and my pickiest eater's favorite!).  When we visit IKEA we usually stock up on the cream gravy packets and jars of Lingonberries.  We were out of lingonberry, but after a few phone calls, I found some at one of our local grocery stores. We ate meatballs, gravy, lingonberry, mashed potatoes (I ran out of time, other wise I would have steamed little red potatoes from our garden) and green beans (though my husband doesn't remember eating them in Sweden

The Best French Bread I've Ever Made

This is the best french bread I've ever made.  I got this recipe from my friend, Nikki, who gave us some of this bread as a thank you for my hubby helping them move a piano.  I remember it being delicious and we gobbled it up fast.  I was intimidated for some reason by the recipe and waited a few years before I made it. We needed some bread for to make some turkey, provolone, avocado sandwiches, so I made some of this bread and it was perfect!  We sliced one loaf like they do at Subway.  Then later I made normal shaped sandwiches with the rest of the bread.  Delicious... light and fluffy and yummy! Update 2/22/12: This is still my favorite bread after making it for a year! It turns out perfect every time and it's gone in a flash! printable recipe French Bread recipe from my friend, Nikki Yield: 2 loaves   Ingredients 2 c. warm water 1 pkg (or 1 heaping Tbsp.) yeast 1/4 c. granulated sugar 1 T. olive oil
