Makes 4 servings

Honey Pepper Glazed Bacon

12 slices thick-sliced bacon
1 tablespoon Demitri’s Classic, Chipotle Habanero or Chilies & Peppers Bloody Mary Seasoning
1 tablespoon local honey

-------------------------------

Spicy Mayo

1 tablespoon Demitri’s Chilies & Peppers Bloody Mary Seasoning
1/4 cup mayonnaise

----------------------------

1 French baguette, cut into 4 pieces, or 8 rustic bread slices
2 vine ripe tomatoes
8 tender lettuce leaves
8 bamboo or fancy picks

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

To make the bacon: Spray a rimmed baking sheet with vegetable spray. Lay out bacon slices. Mix the Demitri’s seasoning and honey in a small bowl then drizzle evenly over bacon slices. Bake for about 15 minutes or until bacon is crispy. Drain on a baking rack.

To make the spicy mayo: Mix the Demitri’s seasoning and mayonnaise together in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.

To make the sandwich: If using a baguette, split sections horizontally. Spread each baguette piece or bread slice with 1 tablespoon of spicy mayo. Lay out bacon on sandwiches, then tomatoes, and then top with lettuce. Close sandwiches, pick each with 2 picks, and cut sandwiches in half. Serve immediately.
