Today, it is easy to find bacon as the star of many dishes, including cupcakes and flavored beer. But this breakfast treat’s humble beginnings as a lunchtime staple was birthed through the BLT. Typically, this sandwich is constructed of bacon, lettuce, and tomato piled between two slices of bread and slathered in mayo. Sandwich connoisseurs took this small finger sandwich from delicate to decadent with additions like cheese and avocado. With decadence in mind, we liked this recipe from chef Gerard Strong of Denver’s Central Bistro, featuring a fried green tomato, avocado, and a garlic aioli.  Click here to see 10 Classic Summer Sandwich Recipes

This Avocado Egg Salad recipe is creamy, crunchy and full of color and great taste. It’s the perfect solution for leftover hard boiled eggs, or the perfect option for a great sandwich! The avocados are an awesome sub for much of the mayo typically found in many egg salad recipes. Plus they add delicious creaminess. The seasonal radishes add the crunch and color (speaking of color, keep in mind your egg salad will have more of a green tint than yellow, thanks to the avocados), and the lemon zest adds a touch of sunny citrus.

To turn a ham and cheese into a bistro-ready Croque Monsieur, bring 1 cup of whole milk to a simmer in a saucepot. Mix together 1 tablespoon softened unsalted butter and 1 tablespoon flour to create a paste, and then whisk into the hot milk. Continue whisking until thickened, about 10 minutes, over medium heat. Season with salt and nutmeg. Pour a little béchamel over each sandwich, and top with more grated Gruyère. Broil until the top is bubbly and browned.

For added moisture and flavor in our turkey burger, we’ve added lightly sautéed shallots and garlic — they were mixed into the ground turkey meat. We also stuffed the patties with cheddar cheese for a rich gooey-centered burger. The combination of oil-coated shallots and garlic makes the turkey patty stick less to the grill, and adds a nice flavor profile to the otherwise bland turkey meat.

I’m a big fan of making things ahead so they are ready to grab when we’re in a rush. "Sneak-wiches" are a good example of this method. Much like the packaged versions in the grocery store, this is a homemade, healthier version of the conveniently made-ahead sandwich that you keep in the freezer. The key is to remove the crusts of the bread and crimp together the edges to "seal" the sandwich together. I suggest making several sandwiches at a time, and freeze each individually in a plastic bag. There are several filling options below.

Grilled Beef Tenderloin Tips
These tender cubes of meat work well in stews or, during warmer months, can be easily grilled and served with seasonal vegetables. In this case, I sautéed zucchini and squash and, though it's not in the picture, a side of roasted asparagus with tomatoes and garlic. It was a little bit of a feast, but good times with friends and food.  Hope you enjoy the same! Click here to see Beef Recipes for Any Night of the Week

Artichokes used to make this spread help the liver metabolize fat, flush the gall bladder, and cleanse the palate of excess mucus. The lemon used in the recipe awakens the pungent flavor in the body, detoxifies the lymphatic system, and provides vitamin C. Lastly, the olive oil is an anti-inflammatory that is rich in vitamin E and monounsaturated fats, which enhance colon health.
