I wanted to present to you today a simple and quick toastie sandwich that is perhaps a bit lower in fat than your usually toastie sandwich. Not only is is quick and easy but it's quite delicious as well, but then you probably already know that because if you have been reading me for a while, you will know I never show you anything that I don't think is delicious!
This is a little bit different than your usual BLT sandwich. I use grilled back bacon, which is very lean. I like the dry cured oak smoked, but you can use whatever you want. In North America, I would use back bacon.
Along with the grilled bacon, I have grilled sliced tomatoes. They cook quickly and the grilling makes otherwise not so tasty tomatoes, delicious . . . helping to release some of their natural sweetness and juices. You can tuck some slivers of garlic in them as well if you want.
I used whole wheat whole grain bread, for extra goodness and nuttiness. The bread is also grilled.
I dress the sandwich with a fabulous basil mayonnaise, which is as simple as chopping fresh basil and stirring it into regular or low fat mayonnaise. A grinding of black pepper and Bob's your uncle! Everybody is happy!
