Lazy Lobster Rolls With Lightly Salted Baked Sweet Potato Chips

Every time we have lobster tails we seem to have a lot left, so I'm always looking for recipes. The new Bon Appetit has a wonderful recipe for Lobster Rolls, although I followed a slightly less complicated recipe path since I didn't want to go to the store. In lieu of that, we both agreed that no matter what, it's definitely our new favorite for *Sandwich Night*. So, here is my slightly lazy version of Lobster Rolls served with lightly salted baked Sweet Potato Chips:



2 split Kaiser rolls (hot dog buns can be used by slicing a thin piece off the outside of each bun)

1 tablespoon butter, softened

2 large lettuce leaves (to fit)

1-1/2 cups of leftover (or freshly cooked) lobster meat, chopped

4-5 heaping tablespoons of mayonnaise

1 teaspoon fresh squeezed lime juice

2-3 dashes of Tabasco sauce (or to taste)

2 green onions chopped (I used yellow onions I had on hand)

1-2 stalks of celery, chopped

salt and pepper, to taste

1 pinch of dried basil, parsley, or tarragon (I prefer tarragon)


1. Lightly butter the buns and saute in a pan, turning when browned to liking. Remove from pan to plates.

2. Line one side of sandwich with lettuce.

3. Mix all other ingredients together in a bowl.

4. Pile onto each sandwich, add baked sweet potato chips and ENJOY!
