Jalapeno Bacon Wrapped Zucchini, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwiches

I wanted a BLT but I wanted to add something more to it too....Bacon Wrapped Zucchini sounded like the perfect touch....then I though of my Jalapeno Bacon and *drools* yummmmmm.

Amounts will be to your own number of sandwich needs

Slices of bread....I recommend a good Sour Dough
Slices of Zucchini(about 1-2 per sandwich depending on the size of the slices)
Slices of Bacon(1 per zucchini slice)
Slices of Tomato
Lettuce or Greens of your choice
Mayo(flavored if you like, I like chipotle mayo)

Cheese if you like, I added pepper jack.

1/4 cup jarred jalapenos(mince them up a bit) and liquid*

* If you don't want the kick, just omit the jalapenos from the mix!

First the zucchini...

Take you zucchini and slice it lengthwise into thin strips...If it is a large zuke, you can half those width-wise as well.

Wrap a slice of bacon tightly around each strip, make sure it overlaps a little so it doesn't slip off.

Then place the wrapped zucchini slices in and turn the heat to medium high, bring the liquid to a boil, then reduce temp to medium, continue to cook until the liquid burns off, turning the slices only once...
When the liquid is gone, reduce the temp once more to medium low and cook until the bacon has reached your desired crispiness, turning only one more time if possible, the more you play with them, the more likely the bacon is to slip off the zucchini.

Place on paper towels to drain...

Toast your bread and spread on some mayo, place on the zucchini slices, then tomatoes (I put on the cheese here, then broil it slightly to melt the cheese) then top with lettuce and remaining bread slice(also mayoed if you like) and slice and enjoy!
