Turkey BLT on Rye

turkey BLT sandwich

Is it humid as all heck where you live? Do you have tomatoes growing out of your ears? Do you live with a man who loves bacon? No? That's just me? Well, you still might like this sandwich. 

Last summer the tomato plants the husband and I bought, which I swore were going to produce regular ol' tomatoes grew cherry tomatoes and that was it. The husband wasn't such a fan and insisted we grow tomatoes this year. 

Well, he's getting his way. My garden is filled with tomatoes and I mean tomatoes. We have HUGE tomatoes. But I'm not complaining. Without 'em I wouldn't be able to put them in my morning omelette or throw them into the salad I sometimes have to twist the husband's arm to eat before dinner or make a great BLT.

Even when it's almost 100 degrees outside I insist on eating a warm dinner. I know, it's strange. While the husband wants to eat Popsicles and skip dinner all togeher I just need something warm. So, even if I talk him into eating something light for dinner, like a sandwich, I prefer it be at least a little warm. 

The husband cooked up four slices of bacon and toasted four slices of rye bread. I cut up a large tomato and got the lettuce and light mayo out. When our bread was toasted I topped each slice with a little mayo (about 1/2 tablespoon per sandwich 'cause neither of us likes a ton of the stuff), some tomato slices, bacon, lettuce and turkey. I even put a little basil on mine. 

This turkey BLT was a win-win-win: We used up a big tomato from the garden, the husband ate vegetables and it was a great light yet warm meal. I think we'll definitely be eating this one again before our tomato supply runs out.
