soprano sandwich

This sandwich is based off my favorite at High Rock Cafe, a restaurant in Wisconsin Dells. I think about this sandwich often, but since I can’t get to High Rock that often I finally decided to try it on my own. Let me preface this by saying that while this sandwich was wonderful, the boys at High Rock really know what they are doing and in a throwdown, my version wouldn’t have a chance.

Soprano Sandwich:

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1/2 lb. raw shrimp, thawed (or pre-cooked shrimp)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 slices swiss cheese
  • 4 slices bread of choice
  • tomato, lettuce, mayo

Pan fry bacon slices in large pan until crisp. Set aside. Pour off excess grease and add shrimp to pan. Season with minced garlic and cajun seasonings, sautéing until cooked through. Broil cheese and bread until cheese has melted. Layer sandwich with bacon, shrimp, lettuce and tomato.

This sandwich combines all the components you could ever want: crunchy bread, flavorful shrimp, gooey cheese and bacon. Oh, and don’t forget the vegetables to make it a “balanced meal”. 😉
