Scrumptious Turkey BLT with Creamy Dijon Mustard Spread











Discover a delightful twist on the classic BLT. This Turkey BLT with a homemade Creamy Dijon Mustard spread combines savory turkey bacon with the freshness of tomatoes and lettuce, all held together by toasty bread. It's a symphony of flavors and textures, perfect for any meal.


Step 1: Preheat and Prep

Start by warming your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, a cozy temperature to perfectly toast your bread without burning it. Meanwhile, fry up that bacon until it's as crispy as autumn leaves underfoot. Imagine the sizzle as the room fills with that irresistible aroma. Isn't it just the best?
Pro Tip: Place your bacon on a paper towel to absorb extra grease.

Step 2: Mustard Mixture

In a small bowl, marry the robust Dijon mustard with the creamy salad dressing. This isn’t just any spread; it’s the heart of your sandwich, adding that moisture and tangy kick that will tie all your ingredients together beautifully. Mix until fully combined and smooth, dreaming of the flavor explosion to come.
Pro Tip: Whisk vigorously to get a smoother, more emulsified spread.

Step 3: Layer Your Sandwich

Now, let's get to the fun part: assembling your masterpiece. Spread a thin layer of your creamy Dijon dressing on each slice of bread. Layer on the slices of cheese, those crispy bacon strips, fresh romaine, juicy tomato, and thin slices of Vidalia onion on one slice of bread. Cap it with another slice, and you have built not just a sandwich, but a tower of texture and taste.
Pro Tip: For an even melt, place cheese slices directly on the Dijon spread.

Step 4: Baking to Perfection

Drizzle a bit of olive oil over your sandwich for that golden touch, then place it gently on a baking sheet. Let the oven do its magic, turning once, until the bread is toasted to perfection and the cheese melts into a gooey delight. This step not only warms your sandwich but also combines the flavors, making every bite a warm hug to your taste buds.
Pro Tip: Use parchment paper on your baking sheet for easy cleanup.

Step 5: Serving Your Creation

After about 8-10 minutes, your Turkey BLT has transformed into a crunchy, melty, aromatic delight. Slice it diagonally — because we all know that’s how the best sandwiches are cut — and serve. The first bite will be a testament to the love and care you’ve put into crafting this meal. Enjoy every moment, from prep to plate, because this, my dear, is not just food; it's an experience.
Pro Tip: Let the sandwich rest for a minute before slicing for cleaner cuts.
