Bacon Bird Baguette

Bacon Bird Baguette

Posted on

It's fall, the weather is actually cooling down, and that means we like turning on our ovens for comfort food! This recipe, brought to us by the talented Cooking with Laurie Figone, was one of our favorite (and top-scoring!) recipes in our 2017 Recipe Contest. We love the simple ingredients, yet complex flavors this dish provides. Plus, who doesn't love a warm, crunchy baguette sandwich?! Yielding 8 servings, this is a great recipe to whip up for a tailgate party/football game or even when you're just having friends over for lunch. We think you'll love it! 

Bacon Bird Baguette

Makes 8 Servings


1 2 ft. long baguette
8 oz. hickory smoked sliced bacon
1/2 cup Saucy Mama Honey Barbeque Wing Sauce
4 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 cup Saucy Mama Creamy Horseradish
1/2 cup fresh celery leaves, minced
2 Tbsp. mayonnaise 
12 oz. ground turkey
2 Tbsp. Saucy Mama White Balsamic & Honey Dressing
1/2 tsp. salt
tomato slices


Slice off top 1/3 lengthwise of baguette. Tear out bread in bottom half, leaving a half inch shell. Save torn bread pieces for another use. Set aside.

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil. Coat bacon pieces with Saucy Mama Honey Barbeque Wing Sauce. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until deep dark brown. Remove bacon to paper towel lined dish. Set aside until assembly.

In a small mixing bowl blend together shredded cheddar cheese, Saucy Mama Creamy Horseradish, minced celery leaves, and mayonnaise. Spread 1/2 cup of this mixture into bottom of hollowed out baguette. Spread the other 1/2 cup onto the bottom side of the top piece of baguette. Set aside.

Mix together ground turkey, Saucy Mama White Balsamic & Honey Dressing, and salt. Put this mixture on top of cheddar-horsesradish filling in baguette bottom. Fold a double piece of heavy duty foil to cover the bottom and just to the edges of turkey filled baguette. Bake in for 25 minutes, or until cooked through. Set aside.

Adjust oven to broiler. Broil top of baguette, cheddar-horseradish side up, until bubbly and lightly browned.

Assembly: layer turkey filled baguette with honey bbq bacon, tomato slices, and toasted baguette top (cheese side down). Slice and serve.
