I was supposed to get this recipe up a little while back, but got sidetracked and chose to put up some different recipes. So, sorry about that – but here it is!
I wanted to post this to give you some ideas on what you can do with leftovers. Leftovers doesn’t always mean throwing what you made in the microwave and eating it. You can always make a new combination of foods, tastes, and textures to give yourself a different meal even if you’re using almost the same ingredients.
Now, keep in mind that you don’t have to use the bacon explosion for this recipe. The bread after it’s been pan fried is delicious on its own. You can put cheese, ham, turkey, steak, or whatever you want inside!
Depending on how thick your slices are, the nutrition will change. I sliced about thick enough so I’d have 12 slices off of the whole cheddar bacon explosion. That’s how the macros were derived – so make sure that if you are doing something differently, you include that in your macros.
Yields 1 Serving of Fried Bacon Explosion Focaccia
1. Slice off the piece of focaccia bread that you want. My serving was 1/9 (1 serving) of the original recipe.
2. Slice this serving of focaccia bread in half.
3. Your cheddar bacon explosion is probably cooled by now, so it is easy to cut.
4. Slice off a relatively thick piece of your cheddar bacon explosion.
5. Put one of your slices of focaccia bread over the bacon explosion so you can use this as a guide on how much to cut.
6. Slice your cheddar bacon explosion so that one of the pieces fits on your bread. Try to cut it so that you will have an end piece that will fit on there also.
7. Heat a pan to medium-high and wait for it to get hot. Once it does, add your slices of bacon explosion to the pan.
8. Let the bacon explosion fry a little on one side, then flip it to get crisp on the second side.
9. Remove the bacon explosion slices from the pan to cool.
10. Butter the outside of your focaccia bread like you would a grilled cheese sandwich.
11. In the same pan, add your focaccia bread to fry on one side.
12. Once it’s browned, you can flip it over to toast on the other side for about 30-45 seconds.
13. Remove the bread from the pan and assemble your sandwich.
14. Add sauces of your choice, and serve! I used sugar free ketchup and brown mustard.
