Caprese BLT Sandwich Recipe


Recently, I was sent a cast iron bacon press from Good Cook, it was to go with my Sweet Chili & Avocado Stuffed Chicken Burger, but since we didn’t use any bacon on our burger, my husband and I decided on grilling up a Caprese BLT Sandwich instead! It was a quick and easy sandwich that was PERFECT for lunch! You will love it!

  • 3 Roma tomatoes
  • 12 slices Italian bread
  • Baby spinach
  • 6 slices bacon or turkey bacon
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella or 6 oz sliced
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise

  4. Grill the bacon using a press to insure that it is flat, and set aside.
  5. Turn the heat down to the lowest setting or remove the grill from the heat to avoid burning the oil.
  6. Build the sandwiches by first spreading both sides of the bread with the pesto mayo.
  7. Place the tomato slices on the bread followed by the spinach.
  8. Place the bacon on the greens and cover with the cheese and bread.

  10. Continue grilling the sandwiches about 3 minutes each side while brushing oil between each sandwich.
  11. Enjoy.
