The Southern Bird Dog Sandwich

This simple and tasty sandwich, which I spotted over at She Wears Many Hats, comes together quickly and is perfect for a quick week night dinner. Chicken, bacon, cheese and honey mustard – you can’t go wrong there. I recommend toasting the buns and using good quality ingredients. Since this sandwich is so simple, it’s important to use the best you can find. Enjoy!
