It is never too late in the year to grill. There are always those minor warm fronts that come through that make grilling delightful. It is going to be in the fifties for highs all week here so it was absolutely doable to make these Grilled Chicken Bacon Pepper Jack Ciabatta sandwiches for lunch today. I love a good sandwich. I mean honestly who doesn’t? My favorite bread or roll for a great sandwich is ciabatta. Ciabatta is an Italian white bread made from wheat flour, water, salt, and yeast and is extraordinarily delicious when toasted to perfection.
This delectable Grilled Chicken Bacon Pepper Jack Ciabatta layers grilled chicken, pepper jack cheese, smoked bacon, grilled red onion and red peppers on fresh Ciabatta bread. It can all be prepared on the grill or you can cook the bacon, grilled red onions and red peppers in the oven. You can add mayo, mustard, lettuce, tomatoes or avocado. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
Have you tried any of my other great sandwiches? Italian Pressed Sandwich, Grilled Meatloaf Sandwich with Chipotle Ketchup, and Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich with Spicy Chipotle Cilantro Slaw are just a few of hubby’s favorites but there are a lot more. This California Club Sandwich from my blogging friend Baking Beauty is one of our favorites!
So waste no more time my food loving friends. Put the ingredients for this phenomenal Grilled Chicken Bacon Pepper Jack Ciabatta on your grocery list today. Shake the cold off and go out to the grill and make yourself an outstanding sandwich or as they say down in Southern Florida where my sister resides sammich.
