Why I Love This Recipe

A twist on an old favorite...

Ingredients You'll Need

4 pieces wheat or white bread – cut ½ inch thick
6 pieces bacon
4-6 pieces bibb leaf lettuce
1 tomato
1 avocado
juice of one lemon
¼ lb. sliced turkey breast
4 oz fresh mozzarella – sliced
mayonnaise (optional)
salt and pepper to taste


Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Place a baking wire rack on a sheet pan and arrange the bacon on the rack in a single layer. Bake for 15 to 25 minutes, until the bacon is browned and crisp. Drain on paper towels and set aside. (If you prefer, fry the bacon slices in a skillet and drain as usual).

Place the 4 bread slices on a sheet pan. Divide the turkey slices and mozzarella evenly on two of the pieces of bread. Toast the bread for 5 minutes or until evenly browned and the cheese is melted.

Place the 2 plain toasted slices on a cutting board. Spread each slice with mayonnaise, if desired. Cover the slices with a layer of lettuce. Peel the avocado and slice it 1/2-inch thick. Toss the avocado slices gently with the lemon juice, and arrange on top of the lettuce leaves.

Place 3 slices of bacon on top of each sandwich and then add a layer of tomato slices on top of the bacon. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Place the other toasted half (with the turkey and melted mozzarella) on top.
