the ultimate turkey sandwich

It’s Black Friday.  No Shopping for me today. My family and I love to just hang out, take it easy and munch on all the yummy Thanksgiving leftovers. This year, the folks at Oroweat asked me to make my version of the ultimate turkey sandwich using their Oroweat Organic Sandwich Bread. Anyone who knows me knows I generally buy organic food and that I love all the Thanksgiving dinner menu items, so it seemed like the perfect challenge for me. Made with organic ingredients and whole grains, NEW Oroweat Organic breads are the delicious way to feel better about eating better.

Here’s how I created our family’s favorite sandwich, the Bacon Guacamole Turkey Sandwich, or the “BGT”, haha!

I started by lightly toasting the Organic

 Oroweat Grains and Seeds sandwich bread.

Found in my local grocery store.

I cooked my bacon and let it crisp up on a paper towel.

 I like using guacamole for this sandwich
because it has the creaminess of
the avocado with the added flavor of
the tomato, onion and cilantro.  

Recipe for “Martha’s Guacamole” is found below.

 I start with slathering the guacamole on the first piece of bread.

 Next I added the bacon

 Then I layered thick slices of our Thanksgiving turkey.

{White meat only for me!}

 Just a touch of mayo and black pepper. 

And that’s it! 

Martha Stewart’s Guacamole
·         2 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted, and lightly mashed
·         1/2 cup minced onion
·         1 jalapeno chile, minced (remove seeds and ribs for less heat)
·         1 plum tomato, seeded and diced
·         1/4 cup chopped cilantro
·         2 to 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
·         Coarse salt

In a bowl, combine avocados, onion, jalapeno, tomato, cilantro, and lime juice. Season with salt, and mix to combine.  (If you make the guacamole several hours ahead, keep it in the refrigerator. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, pressing the plastic directly onto the surface of the guacamole to prevent discoloration.)
