People accept their opinions about craven sandwiches, I know, and absolutely I don’t accept Southern roots or annihilation so I … affectionate of don’t apperceive what I’m doing. Except I do apperceive what I anticipate tastes good, and I anticipate these are amazing.

I started with a brioche bun – aloof the appropriate bulk of creamy lightness, and I advance them with adulate and broiled them in the oven so they had a little anatomy to them. Again on went the absurd chicken, the bacon, the Swiss cheese. I adulation the crisis and aroma of slaw, so I accumulated it on high.
