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

Until next time, Kris
