Newk's White BBQ sandwich
BATON ROUGE - With summer in full swing and the Fourth of July just around the corner, Tiffany from one of Baton Rouge's newest restaurants, Newk's Eatery, joined us in studio to demonstrate how to make a unique twist on the classic barbecue sandwich.
Tiffany says the key to this sandwich being so special lies in the sauce, which Newk's makes by hand in house. In fact, the recipe for the white BBQ sauce is a closely guarded secret of the company's CEO Chris Newcomb. If you really want to make this sandwich reach its full potential, you can stop by Newk's Eatery locations now located on Corporate and Lake Street.
-7 ½ in. loaf of French bread
-2 oz. White BBQ sauce (any brand or recipe)
-4 oz. sliced grilled chicken
-2 strips bacon
-2 pieces of Swiss cheese
1.) Cut the French bread and lay it open-faced.
2.) Put one scoop (or one ounce) of White BBQ Sauce directly on the bread.
3.) Layer your grilled chicken across the entire surface.
4.) Put another scoop (or remaining one ounce) of White BBQ sauce on the chicken.
5.) Layer Swiss cheese and bacon on top of the chicken.
6.) Bake in the oven at 450° for 3-7 minutes, or until cheese is melted. The sauce will darken, as well.
7.) Remove from the oven, fold the sandwich together and then cut it in half. Serve and enjoy alongside your favorite summer picnic items or Fourth of July barbecue staples!
