~Crostini w/Bacon, Pickles, Chicken & Honey Mustard~

IMG_4970Write this list of five ingredients down.  Why?  Because together, they make for some stellar snack sandwiches.  Lightly-toasted French baguette slices, crisply-fried bacon, crunchy bread and butter pickles, roasted chicken breast, and, a drizzle of tangy honey-mustard salad dressing (which pulls it all together and complements each and every component perfectly).  Feel free to put a thin slice or two of soft, mellow French Brie underneath the bacon, but, no ooey-gooey melted cheese please.  These sandwiches are best with everything at room temperature.  That said, "you only get out of something what you put into", so, for the best experience possible:

IMG_4973Crostini w/Bacon, Pickles, Chicken & Honey Mustard:  Recipe yields instructions to make as many 3"-3 1/2" snack sandwiches as one wants or needs.  That said, because they're hearty, plan accordingly:  2 for me, possibly 3 for a hungrier person.

Special Equipment List:  cutting board; serrated bread knife; teaspoon

IMG_3586Cook's Note:  It's no secret that I love sandwiches, or that I put a lot of thought into what it put into my sandwiches.  For another one of my favorite sandwiches, which contains a few of the same ingredients as my crostini (bacon, chicken and honey-mustard dressing), plus a few classic Fall ingredients (apples, cheddar cheese, lettuce and a bit of onion too), try my recipe for Chicken Cheddar, Bacon & Apple Pita Sandwiches.  Yummy!
