And on the forth day of Christmas ….
ok, no calling birds, but one heck of a Turkey BLT with leftover Christmas dinner. Nom nom.
3 slices thick cut bacon, oven baked (see my method here)
1 thick slice of roasted turkey breast
1 heirloom tomato, sliced to 1/3 inch thick
1-2 leaves green leaf lettuce
2 slices hearty bread (I used sourdough), toasted
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste
To assemble your sandwich, I have found the best order of things is the following (in order for the sandwich to hold together whilst eating): On the bottom piece of toast, spread one tablespoon of the mayonnaise and then place on the bacon slices, followed by the tomatoes. Sprinkle the tomato slices with salt and pepper. Then place on the turkey. On the other piece of toast, spread another tablespoon of mayonnaise and the red leaf lettuce, “sticking” the lettuce onto the top bread. Just before serving join the top layer onto the rest of the sandwich. Cut in half and serve.
