Two more weeks until school starts! What?!? Where has the summer gone? It seems like the summer just started and now I’m days away from breaking out the kids’ lunch boxes. I always think summer is going to go by slowly as I try to fill our days with activities. But, this year between camps and the pool, it went by in the blink of an eye.
Lately my husband, Jay, has been traveling for work. Many nights, I’m exhausted and I want to get the kids in bed so I can enjoy a quick, simple dinner in peace. I admit, dinner ends up being cereal more often than it should, but lately I have been on a sandwich kick. They make a quick and easy meal with minimal ingredients and constant variety.
One day I was at the store day dreaming about my nightly sandwich. I was perusing the jelly section when my eyes landed upon something new — Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Jalapeno Fruit Spread . ‘What is this?’ I thought as my mouth started to water. I could already taste the sandwich, all I needed was some cheese and bacon. A little sweet, a little heat, a little salty and CHEESE, perfection!
This recipe only has five ingredients and cooks up in under 10 minutes. First spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Place the bread butter side down in a large skillet. On one piece of bread spread a generous amount of the Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Jalapeno Fruit Spread and on the other slice, place the bacon and cheese. Put the pieces of bread together and then cook each side until golden brown, about four minutes on each side.
Caution: This sandwich will disappear quickly, it is just so. darn. good. I wrote the recipe with a serving size of two sandwiches because believe me, you will need it.
