If your family is like mine, the appetites arrive at about the same time that we pull up to our camp location at the beginning of our camping escape weekends. I know how easy it is to pull out the lunchmeat and loaf of bread to slap together a quick sandwich so you can keep your setup progressing quickly—I say, ‘resist the urge’ and instead make this super-fast Bacon with Basil Mayo on Ciabatta camp recipe. The fresh herbs and couple of drops of hot sauce are the secrets to the flavor explosion of this sandwich—a little spicy with a whole lot of freshness. The bacon and tomato combination is a classic one worth keeping on your menu. And, who wouldn’t choose a hearty Ciabatta bread to bring it all together? This sandwich satisfies the palette and lets you get back to your setup in a snap. After all, there are more important things to do when you’re camping…mountains to climb, books to read and naps to take! Here’s how you make my Bacon with Basil Mayo on Ciabatta camp recipe. Serves 4 Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.
