“This sandwich originally came from a resaurant in Bellevue, Wa called "Benjamins's" which eventually quit serving it. Probably too much work, but not if you do it the way I described.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. This is for a terrific serve it yourself meal.
  2. I cook bacon and/or grill veggies and wrap in foil.
  3. Then prepare all fresh, raw veggies and grated cheese.
  4. To keep avocado slices fresh, sprinkle lightly with lemon juice in a plastic bowl and shake gently; then refrigerate till serving time.
  5. Toast the bread and let everyone pile on their favorites.
  6. I use all of them.
  7. For two, you can prepare the entire sandwiches yourself and serve with a nice dill pickle and your favorite potato dish or corn on the cob.
  8. I do all ahead and then just place bacon and/or veggies in on low heat to warm before assembling sandwiches.
  9. To minimize grease, layer bacon in white paper towels, then roll together and wrap in foil.
  10. As long as you don't turn the heat too high, the paper is fine in the oven or just remove foil and nuke.
