Bacon Barbecue Melt

Serves 12


20 slices bacon

1 pound chipped chopped ham, shredded

1 onion, chopped

1/4 cup barbeque sauce

1/4 cup sweet chili sauce

1/4 cup sweet pickle relish

1/4 cup sweet pickle slices, chopped

12 slices cheddar cheese

24 slices oatmeal bread

Method of Preparation:

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2.Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Allow the bacon to cool, and chop.

3.Cook and stir the onion in the bacon grease left in the skillet until onion is translucent, about 10 minutes. Stir in the bacon, chipped ham, barbecue sauce, and chili sauce until the mixture is well combined. Transfer the ham mixture to a large bowl, and stir in the pickle relish and chopped pickle.

4.Place about 1/4 cup of ham mixture on a slice of bread, and top with a slice of Cheddar cheese. Top sandwich with a slice of bread, wrap each in foil, and bake in the preheated oven until hot and the cheese has melted, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve hot.
