To make your hot honey, heat a small pan with your honey and chiles. Let come to a simmer and turn off heat, set aside.

Next, heat a deep pan with vegetable oil and let it get hot. Take your chicken thighs and dredge them in your beaten eggs and then flour. Shake off the excess and fry in your hot oil until the chicken is cooked through and the outside is crispy, about 10-15 minutes.

Let cool and top with salt and drizzle on your hot honey.

Assemble your fried chicken sandwiches by placing on your mayo sauce, slice of tomato (optional), your slaw, fried chicken and cover with the top bun.

Steak BLT with Spicy Sesame Sauce

Steak BLT with Spicy Sesame Sauce

There is nothing I love more than the unison of ingredients and flavor of a BLT. Amp up your next sandwich by adding steak and a spicy sesame sauce with the recipe below. Crispy bacon from Jones Dairy Farm and a simple salt and pepper steak paired with a country loaf and a spicy sauce - score.

What I love about BLT’s is that they are simple but are so easy to make and equally delicious. The bacon kills it in a BLT because of the major crunch. See below for the full recipe!

Steak BLT with Spicy Sesame Sauce

Ingredients - For the BLT

  • 5-7 slices Jones Dairy Farm Bacon
  • 1 head Butter Lettuce
  • 3-4 beefsteak tomatoes, sliced
  • 2, 6oz flank steaks
  • Bread of your choice (we used a country French loaf), sliced

Spicy Sesame Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 1⁄2 tablespoons sesame oil 3 tablespoons mayo
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt

Directions

Heat large skillet on medium heat. Add in your bacon slices, flipping 5-6 minutes until the bacon is crispy and cooked through. Once the bacon is done, take it out of the pan and place on paper towels to drain.

Make your spicy sesame sauce by thoroughly mixing Sriracha, sesame oil, mayo, sugar and salt in a small bowl.

In the same pan as bacon, season flank steak with salt and pepper and grill 3-4 minutes on each side, depending on thickness and desired doneness, I prefer medium rare. Let rest for 15 minutes before thinly slicing.

Time to assemble the BLT! Slather spicy sauce on bread, add lettuce, tomatoes, steak and bacon, top with more spicy sesame sauce and dig in!
