GRILLED BACON, TOMATO, AVOCADO AND CHEESE SANDWICHES
Sensational flavor in every bite!

Ingredients: (Makes 3 to 4 sandwiches)

1 – 10oz. package Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon
4 – Oroweat, Thin Sandwich Buns (or other bread of choice)
2 – tomatoes, sliced thin and seasoned with salt and pepper

Olive Oil
Basil Pesto

Preparation:

1) In a large, heavy skillet, heat about two tablespoons olive oil, over a medium high, gas grill burner. Add bacon and pan fry until crispy. This process may need to be done in two or more batches based on pan size.
2) Transfer cooked bacon to a paper lined platter and let rest for a minute. Place the bacon on a cutting board and chop coarsely (this makes it easier to eat).
3) Preheat gas grill to medium heat, around 350*.
4) While the grill is heating, generously brush the outside of the sandwich buns with olive oil and place the oiled side on a cookie sheet. Spread the inside of the buns with the basil pesto, and then layer each side with cheese. Divide and place the chopped bacon on one side of the buns and layer the other side with the sliced tomatoes and then the avocado.
5) Place the cookie sheet on the pre-heated grill and close the lid. Grill for about 6 minutes, or until the bottom of the buns are browned and crispy.
6) Remove the cookie sheet from the grill. Place the bacon side on top of the tomato avocado side and gently press together. Cut in half and serve.
So good!

Peach-Mango Salsa
Scoop this easy and healthy peach-mango salsa up with tortilla chips, serve it with grilled chicken, salmon or pork chops, or use it as a taco topper. It’s a versatile and vibrant addition to all sorts of meals………………………………

Green Tomato, Tomatillo and Lime Salsa Verde
Packed with tomatillo and tart lime flavor, this salsa is a great way to try out (or use up) any green tomatoes you have lying around. A versatile salsa, it’s perfect for dipping with tortillas or adding to a grilled fish taco. You might even want to try stirring it into sour cream for an enchilada sauce. For less of a spicy kick, omit the jalapeños……………………..

Roasted Three-Chile Salsa
This hot salsa recipe is typically made in a large molcajete (lava-rock mortar and pestle), but this recipe calls for a food processor or blender to make it easier. If you have a molcajete, feel free to use it instead. If you can’t find the bright orange manzano chiles, sold at Mexican grocery stores, double the amount of jalapeño (or for a hotter salsa, double the habanero)………………………..

Recipe Ingredients:
1/2 cup and 1/4 cup, extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon granulated garlic
1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon basil
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon thyme
1 (16-ounce) package baby bella mushrooms, washed and drained

Cooking Directions:
1 – To a measuring cup add a 1/2 cup of the extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, granulated garlic, cracked black pepper, oregano, basil, sea salt, and thyme. Whisk to combine all the ingredients.
