Recommended Posts

Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, and Tuna Sandwich

4 (4- to 6-ounce) tuna fillets

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 loaf unsliced French bread

Vegetable cooking spray

Basil Mayonnaise

Bibb lettuce

2 large tomatoes, sliced

8 slices bacon, cooked

Brush tuna fillets with olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Grill, without grill lid, over medium heat (300° to 350°) 10 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork, turning once.

Cut bread on the diagonal into 8 3/4-inch slices, reserving remaining bread for other uses. Coat slices with cooking spray. Grill or toast each side until golden.

Spread Basil Mayonnaise evenly on one side of each bread slice. Layer 4 bread slices with tuna, lettuce, tomato, and bacon; top with remaining bread slices.

Yield: 4 sandwiches


Memorial Day Barbecued Shrimp

5 pounds unpeeled, large fresh shrimp

1 celery bunch with leaves

4 garlic cloves, chopped

1 (2-ounce) jar cracked black pepper

2 to 3 teaspoons salt

1 to 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon hot sauce

6 lemons, cut into wedges

2 cups butter or margarine, cut into pieces

Place shrimp in a large roasting pan.

Cut celery into 4- to 6-inch lengths. Add celery and next 5 ingredients to shrimp. Squeeze lemon wedges over top, reserving wedges, and toss. Place reserved lemon wedges on top, and dot with butter.

Broil mixture 5 inches from heat (with electric door partially open), stirring often, 5 minutes or until shrimp just begin to turn pink. Reduce temperature to 350°, and bake, stirring often, 20 to 25 minutes or until shrimp turn pink. (Do not overcook.) Serve with French bread.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings


Memorial Day Grilled Hamburger Steak with Bacon 1 pound extra-lean ground hamburger

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 cloves garlic minced

2 tablespoons minced onion

1 tablespoon A-1 Steak Sauce

4 slices bacon

Either preheat broiler or preheat barbecue grill (oil hot grill to help prevent sticking). In a medium bowl, mix together (using your hands) hamburger, salt, pepper, garlic, onion, and A-1 Steak Sauce.

Form into two 2-inch thick patties. Wrap 2 bacon slices around each patty; secure with toothpicks and grill or broil approximately 7 minutes. Turn and grill or broil other side 5 minutes or until until a meat thermometer registers an internal temperature of 155&degF. Remove from oven or grill and enjoy!

Makes 2 servings.
