|Oh, it's a sandwich!|
A while ago, I did a blurb on the sandwich. It was a basic turkey sandwich with all the necessary fixin's. Lately, I've found a new sandwich inspiration that I simply must, must, share with you.
All right, fine. It's just a BLT. Now, before you click away in unhealthy horror, I know what you're feeling. This BLT is different.
A California BLT
Serves one. About 5 min. prep time.
When the toast is ready, it's sandwich time. On one slice of bread, squirt about 1 tbsp. mustard (optional—any spread will do; mustard is nice since it's low in calories. You can also put avocado on both slices instead). On the other slice, apply the mashed (or sliced) avocado. Atop the avocado, layer the bacon, the tomato, and a handful of greens (lettuce is OK, but I really like arugula, spinach, or a mixed green salad). Put the mustard-ed slice on top and apply a little pressure to complete the sandwich. Slice into halves (or quarters) and enjoy!
|Avocado > mayonnaise.|
* Always get fresh, local ingredients if possible.
* Bacon: Go for "natural" selections, read the labels, or get direct from butcher. Try for leaner cuts. (I recommend Boar's Head natural smoked bacon.)
* Calories: Go for quality calories with nutrients attached. Avocados have more value to a body than mayonnaise, and multigrain/whole-grain bread is always better than plain old white.
The Lady's Not for Burning is a romantic comedy in three acts by Christopher Fry, written entirely in verse. Premiered at the Arts Theatre in London in 1949.
