A BLT is quite perfect the way it is, but when you forget to pick up the lettuce and want to watch your saturated fat intake you can make amazingly delicious Turkey Bacon, Spinach + Basil and Tomato Sandwiches! We used Today's Temptations ( a Chicago bakery) Whole Wheat Italian bread, Turkey Bacon, sliced tomatoes from mom's garden and fresh basil from ours along with some crunchy baby spinach... and a shmear of light mayo. To make these, start by cooking your bacon, then toast the bread, spread on mayo on each side, then layer the tomato, spinach, basil topped with a couple slices of bacon. Slice it in half and serve with a cold brew of you choics... mmmmm summer juicy tomatoes never tasted better!
