Alida says: “I love a good BLT and the addition of turkey makes it all the better. That jalapeno mayo is the real kicker here though. It’s sharp tang is what you want to jazz up the (some would say) boring turkey and this along with the slices of fresh tomato is what adds juiciness to this sandwich. I used slices of crushed wheat bread but regular ol’ white bread will do just as fine. It’s important though to toast the bread because if you don’t, this sandwich will just fall apart into a big pile of mush. I even let the toast cool slightly to make sure that it’s really crunchy. You kinda want that texture coming through. And that’s it really, this sandwich looks super impressive but it couldn’t be simpler and of course, you can make this a single layer sandwich but festive feasting is all about indulgence, no? So get excited for those leftovers, and for the love of Thanksgiving, tell me what you to plan to make with yours!”
Turkey BLT club sandwich with jalapeno mayo
Preparation time 5 minutes
Total time 5 minutes
for the jalapeno mayo
1 cup mayonnaise (I used Hellmanns)
2 tablespoons pickled jalapenos, finely chopped
1-2 teaspoons lemon juice
salt, to taste
for the sandwich
sliced bread of your choice, toasted
leftover turkey, sliced
crisp streaky bacon
fresh tomatoes, sliced
To make the mayo, combine the ingredients and mix well.
To assemble the sandwich, spread the jalapeno mayo on a slice of bread then top with lettuce, tomato, turkey and bacon.
Top with another slice of bread and repeat. Close the sandwich with another jalapeno mayo-slathered slice of toast.
Cut in half and serve immediately.
