KBLT - Kalua Chicken, Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich
One of my son and his friend's favorite meal is when I make them a Kalua chicken sandwich. A short cut to making Kalua Chicken can be found here or here via the slow cook method as opposed to the buried in a hot pit method.
The following is my simple recipe for this ono sandwich. But if you have hungry young men and his friend, you may want to make two for each.
Kalua Chicken or pork (cooled)
1 Italian submarine sandwich bread for each (see picture)
1 large ripened garden tomato, thinly sliced or a bunch of ripe grape tomatoes (cut in half)
1 or 2 heads of Manoa lettuce (washed and thoroughly dried...no moisture)
1 slice of crispy bacon for each sandwich
Your favorite cheese slice such as provolone and avocado slices are optional.
Lightly toast the buns. Lightly spread mayonnaise on each side of the inside of the bread. Add a layer of lettuce leaves, then the kalua chicken, tomatoes and top with a bacon slice and a dash of freshly ground pepper.
