Here we share a fun spin on a traditional BLT sandwich by using slow-roasted tomatoes and a fresh basil mayonnaise. Topped off with fresh greens, this sandwich is not lacking in the flavor department.
Roasting fresh tomatoes brings out their natural sweetness and adds a nice depth of flavor especially on sandwiches. Here we piled these slow-roasted tomatoes high on delicious bread and added crunchy nitrate-free turkey bacon and a simple mayonnaise spread with added freshly chopped basil.
