Ladies Favorite Sandwich

I swear! That is what it is called. This recipe, contributed by a Mrs. F. M. Davison in Des Moines, Iowa is contained in the Sandwiches section of the Favorite Recipes of America Salads cookbook, 1966. It does contain all the vintage faves though: bacon, chili sauce, cheese. I bet it was the ladies favorite. Serve at your next luncheon to see if it still is a hit.

Ladies Favorite

½ lb. sharp cheese, grated
¼ lb. diced raw bacon
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp. chili sauce
Dash of pepper
8 slices of bread

Combine cheese, bacon, egg, chili sauce and pepper. Lay bread on cookie sheet. Spread cheese mixture on bread. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Yield: 8 servings.


  1. Well obviously, I’m no lady! Heh

  2. I’d eat those, although the chili sauce seems a little strange.

  3. Depends on whether the ladies are dressed up like ladies, of course. I remember the ladies of 1966 and they were all about the brocade sleeveless dresses and stockings and fancy shoes. I can’t see my dear ladylike mother in her uncomfortable fitted suit digging into one of these!

    Great to read though! This is just my fave sort of thing.

  4. Don’t forget the hats & gloves!
