Sophisticated BLT


Tonight, we wanted a quick and light dinner. I chose to make BLT’s, but wanted to fancy them up a bit.

I made a spread for my BLT that would be more than just mayo. I mixed a couple tablespoons reduced fat mayonnaise with 1 tablespoon dijon mustard, minced garlic, kosher salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.

Once I toasted my cracked wheat sourdough bread, I spread each slice with the dijon/mayo mixture.


Once my spread was on each slice of bread, I layered my sandwich with heirloom tomatoes and arugula.

After the arugula was placed on top of the tomatoes, I placed two wedges of brie cheese and turkey bacon. I then introduced the top half of my sandwich to the bottom, cut it in half and enjoyed a healthy dinner that didn’t take long at all to make.


  • 2 slices cracked wheat sourdough, or bread of your choice
  • 3 slices turkey bacon
  • heirloom tomato slices
  • 2 wedges of brie cheese
  • arugula
  • 2 tablespoons reduced fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon dijon
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Mix together mayonnaise, dijon, minced garlic, Italian seasoning, kosher salt, and pepper.
  2. Cook turkey bacon.
  3. Toast bread.
  4. Spread mayo mixture on each slice of bread.
  5. Layer with tomato, arugula, brie cheese, and turkey bacon.
  6. Slice in half and enjoy.

Until next time, Kris

I love when my house is filled with people, having friends and family over for a meal feeds my soul. There is nothing I enjoy more than preparing for a dinner party, a holiday dinner, or a book club meeting when it's my turn to host ... If I could, I would own a Bed and Breakfast! This would ensure I'd always have someone to prepare a meal for. Being with others and sharing my table is what I look forward to most. I was born in Wisconsin and after I got married in 1987, my husband and I moved west for his job. He had just graduated college and we were married a couple months later. An interesting tidbit about me is that I never cooked a meal before I got married. I taught myself how to cook and found that I really enjoyed it. One of the first meals I made after we were married was a shrimp pasta dish. I made this for myself when my husband was on business travel and I had so much fun inventing this meal - this was the start of my love of cooking. I probably won't be posting much on shrimp dishes, since I am now allergic. Big bummer! I was allergic to lobster, and then had an issue with scallops, so just never had a shrimp after the scallop incident. Why couldn't I be allergic to something less enjoyable?! My favorite celebrity chefs are Ina Garten and The Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!
