I have really been into anything slider sized lately. I love making sandwiches in this size, because my husband and I always eat less. And did you know how much little kids love slider size sandwiches? They are perfect for little hands. For last night’s dinner, I wanted to try and re-create another one of my favorite meals we had on vacation last month. For these little sandwiches, I baked lobster tails, removed the meat and combined it with roasted red peppers, cucumbers and a little mayonnaise. I put the lobster salad on the roll and topped it with sliced tomato, avocado, bacon and provolone. Then I melted everything under the broiler . I forgot to add the lettuce for the picture, but you can add it on after you broil them.
In the video, I just made 2 tails, or 2 servings, but the recipe written below is for four servings, or 8 little sandwiches.
Lobster “BLT” Melts
4 lobster tails
salt and pepper
8 teaspoons melted butter
1 clove grated garlic
3 tablespoons roasted red pepper, chopped
1/2 cup cucumber, diced
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
thinly sliced provolone cheese
slider size rolls
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut lobster tails in half. Place on a baking sheet. Melt butter and add grated garlic. Salt and pepper tails, and spoon 1 teaspoon butter and garlic mixture on each tail halve. Bake tails for 12 – 15 minutes, until they change in color.
2. When tails are done, remove meat from shells and flake or chop meat. Preheat broiler to high. Add lobster meat to a large bowl with chopped roasted red pepper, cucumber and mayonnaise. Combine well. Place slider rolls on baking sheet. Top with lobster salad, sliced tomato, avocado, crisp bacon and provolone cheese. Melt cheese under the broiler. This will only take a minute or two.
3. Add lettuce and serve.
