Every Sunday I suggest an easy picnic recipe – something light and portable, perfect for some outdoor family time.

Little Man’s Aunt Polly is in town this weekend, and he is smitten! Yesterday, we decided to go scope out Bonita Cove as a potential picnic location for Little Man’s first birthday. In theory the spot is ideal – it is on the bay, it has a playground, and it has big shade trees. And we had a great time (though parking was scarce). We practiced walking in the grass, and the Little Bunny started getting more adventurous, crawling off his mat to grab random leaves and acorns. We also read The Little Island while Little Man made goo goo eyes at Aunt Polly.

For lunch we packed these Sweet & Savory Clubwiches (recipe adapted from this Cooking Light recipe I found a few years ago). They are delicious!

Sweet & Savory Clubwiches

First, prepare the bacon. I use fully cooked turkey bacon, sprinkle it with brown sugar, and bake it at about 400 for 5-10 minutes. Just follow the directions on your package of bacon and cook until you achieve your desired texture. The brown sugar makes an awesome sweet glazed crispiness on the bacon. Cut bacon strips in half.

Next, assemble your sandwiches. For the bread, I use Hawaiian Sandwich Rolls. They have started coming out with these larger sized Hawaiian rolls, but even if you can’t find them, you can use smaller rolls for mini sandwiches. I have even seen Hawaiian sliced bread. Spread dijon mustard on bread. Layer sliced turkey or chicken, bacon, bread and butter pickles (these add more sweetness than dill), and swiss cheese.

Finally, press your sandwiches. If you have a sandwich press, that’s great. I just use a pan with some olive oil and press with a cast iron hand press. You could also use a heavy pan or plate on top of your sandwich. You could even use any heavy household item covered in aluminum foil. Cook on both sides until browned and cheese melts.

Cut sandwiches in half diagonally.
