Turkey Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich

Today's little burst of winter made me long for the days of summer...again!  In fact, I don't want to see SNOW for a VERY, VERY long time.  So... when it came to making dinner tonight I pretended it was a warm sunny day and made BLT's for the boys!  Of course, I made these a little healthier by using turkey bacon, instead of regular bacon and Lemonaise instead of mayonnaise.  They loved it and never mentioned that it tasted any different!  Yippee, I successfully tricked them again!

4 slices bread, I used wheat free but you pick what is good for your family
6 slices turkey bacon
4 romaine leaves, washed and dried
1 tomato, sliced
3 tablespoons lemonaise (or mayonnaise if you prefer)
Salt and Pepper to taste


1) Place the turkey bacon in a skillet and cook on the stove top until lightly browned on both sides. Remove and allow to sit on paper towels until bread is prepared.
2) Meanwhile, toast the bread in a toaster until lightly browned and place 1 1/2 tablespoons of the lemonaise on one slice of bread per sandwich.
3) Layer the lettuce, turkey bacon, tomato on the lemonaise lined bread and salt and pepper to your liking.  Top with another slice of toasted bread and serve at once.  Yummy!


  1. Is lemonaise something you make from scratch? Or, where do you find it in the stores? BTW, Joe bought me a large bag of lemons! So, I'm open for ideas on what to do with them!

  2. Lemonaise is purchased at Whole Foods or Lakewinds. It's a vegan mayo of sorts. It's really good you will have to try it. We can come up with something to do with those lemons. For starters, the tilapia recipe I posted last year was wonderful:)
