I didn't have the turkey bacon so I used regular, it was great! Thanks for this great version of BLT!
Yesterday, we had our first BLT of the tomato season. Alas, with turkey bacon, light mayo, & whole wheat my BLT did not resemble those of years gone by. This recipe made moving to turkey bacon much easier. While I have to say that I shall miss my old BLT with smoked pork bacon & mayonnaise on light bread, this did put a smile on my face! Eating healthier is not for wimps!!!
These were great! I used turkey bacon, and they came out just amazing. Boyfriend loved them too!
