A yummy topping of BL to put on a T. Bacon and lettuce combined with some cheese and breadcrumbs make a plum tomato a yummy side dish! A recipe I found in Better Homes & Gardens. Magazine says this is 98 calories per serving with 8 grams of fat. You could reduce that by using turkey bacon and low fat mayo.

My sister-in-law Jean made these over the weekend...Fabulous! Tasted exactly like a BLT, but without the guilt of the bread. (the little bit in the stuffing doesn't count : }.) They are very satisfying when you need a little comfort food and pretty filling too...makes a nice light lunch. Highly recommend these as a meal starter or a light lunch!
