TBLT Sandwich

Turkey Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich – A classic, made with Turkey Bacon.

TBLT Sandwich

Ingredients:
2 slices of bread
2 slices of cheese
mayonnaise
lettuce leafs
4 slices of tomato
3 slices of turkey bacon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a shallow rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place turkey bacon on foil and bake in preheated oven until desired crispiness ( I baked mine for about 15 minutes, I like it crispy). Drain on a paper towel.
  2. Meanwhile toast slices of bread, once toasted place slices of cheese of each slice of bread (melt cheese on bread if desired, that’s what I did).
  3. Spread each slice of bread with desired amount of mayonnaise (I spread the mayonnaise on top of the cheese because I melted the cheese on the bread). On one slice of bread (bottom slice), start your layers. Start with lettuce, tomato and then the turkey bacon. Place top slice of bread on turkey bacon and serve.

This sandwich is delicious, I don’t eat pork so that is why I use turkey bacon, I have also used beef bacon but I prefer to eat turkey over beef. I have added turkey slices and avocado to this sandwich as well, which is an equally delicious way to change the sandwich up a bit.

This great summer sandwich is so delicious, it is a great sandwich to eat alongside a soup. I used Ezekial bread and Organic Mayonnaise, you could also use an eggless mayo and some soy cheese and make this a vegan sandwich. This sandwich is quick, simple, light and refreshing and loaded with flavor, Give it a try!

I have also included a little bonus for you all…My 4 year old son has jumped on the bandwagon of taking pictures of his food, hey maybe he will have HIS own food blog soon:) Whatcha think?

TAT Sandwich

Turkey Avocado & Tomato (TAT)…a little messy but worth it!

Turkey Avocado & Tomato (TAT) Sandwich

Ingredients:
2 slices of bread
mayonnaise
2 slices of cheese
2 slices of turkey
tomato slices
avocado slices
dill weed

Directions:

I slightly toasted two slices of Alvarado Street Bakery’s Sprouted Rye Seed bread and lightly spread organic mayonnaise on each slice. I then topped each slice of bread with one slice of Colby Jack cheese and one slice of smoked turkey breast. I added sliced tomatoes and avocado. Then sprinkled dill weed and Herbamare on top. You could put both slices together for the sandwich or eat open-faced.

I put together some of my favorites for sandwiches and made this sandwich, it is so good and refreshing, it is messy but I love the flavor of the dill on the sandwich. Try it and you may just love it, I say:)
