BBLT Sandwich

Basil Bacon Lettuce Tomato Sandwich

This sandwich is very addictive. As the queen of variety, you know when I eat the SAME thing for lunch and dinner that it must be one serious recipe. Umm, and I do have to confess that not only did I eat this sandwich yesterday for lunch AND dinner, I ate it again for lunch today too. As Tatiana's favorite Wonderpets would say, "!!"

          • 2 slices of your favorite bread (I've been using 100% WW, but I bet a nice sourdough or white country bread would be superb
      • Hellmann's Light Mayonnaise (been tested by Cook's Illustrated magazine and found to be superior in taste tests, but go on ahead and use your favorite)
  • 3 slices turkey bacon (or regular bacon, more sinful, but yummy)
  • vine ripened or other flavorful tomato, sliced
  • about 6 medium sized fresh basil leaves
  • green-leaf lettuce
  • kosher salt
Toast bread to your liking. Cook bacon until crispy. Spread both sides of bread with mayonnaise. Layer on lettuce, bacon, basil, and tomato, salting the lettuce and tomato. Yup, it's that easy. Eat, letting the tomato juices drip all over your chin.
