The other day I had a nap – supposed to be a usual 1-2 hour nap. Anyway, hubby left me sleeping from 11 am and I only woke up after 4 pm ! Gulp ! Really ..

Therefore, dinner had to be a quick one and I came up with this Heart Attack Sandwich. I was almost done as my son walked in and asked “what is this called”.

Normally I would have thrown a tantrum at a question like that. However, after I started blogging, especially about food, it is a normal question asked in our house.

Without thinking I answered him with ” It’s a Heart Attack Sandwich ” to which he looked intrigued, but not really surprised ! And then the name stuck ..

I would not advise anyone to eat something like this on a regular basis. Especially people with high blood cholesterol.

Have I ever mentioned my daughter and I have this irritating condition? No? Okay, we do, but she wasn’t home and well, I am not really watching what I eat as I should.

Right, enough, this is anyway a real.to.die.for. ultimate sandwich !

  • 2 TB Butter
  • 1 Large Onion, sliced

Instructions

    1. Slice the Buns in half – place the bottom halves on a baking paper lined baking sheet – top each with a slice of Gouda Cheese – place under the grill until just starting to melt – remove and keep aside
    2. Saute the Onion and Bell Pepper in the Butter until soft and golden in a medium saucepan – spoon mixture over the Gouda Cheese
    3. Cook the Bacon as per your preference – place two slices, per sandwich, over the Onion/Pepper and top with a few pieces of Mozzarella – under the grill again for a minute or two – remove – place two slices of Salami over the Mozzarella
    4. Using the same saucepan as used for the Onion/Pepper – stir-fry the Ground Beef until done – season to taste and stir in the BBQ Sauce
    5. Spoon the Beef over the Mozzarella and add another few pieces of Mozzarella over the Beef – back to the oven – grill a minute or so and remove
    6. Place two slices of Ham over the previous layer of Mozzarella and top with a final layer of Mozzarella – under the grill again – remove and close with the top piece of Bun

I love what you come up with in a pinch Linda! A restaurant would pay an ad company millions to create a sandwich like that. :)
