4 strips of bacon
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 chipotle pepper in
adobo, finely minced, plus 1 tsp of adobo sauce from the can
country white or wheat bread
A few leaves of crunchy lettuce (I like
1 large, ripe tomato, sliced into at least 4 slices
large slices roast turkey breast
Fresh black pepper to taste
In a nonstick frying pan set over medium-low heat, cook the bacon
until it's browned but not overly crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove to a
plate covered with paper towels, and blot the bacon dry.
While the bacon is cooking, stir together the mayonnaise and chipotle
pepper with the adobo sauce. Set aside.
When the bacon is done, assemble your sandwiches. Toast the bread (or
not, as you prefer). Place two slices of bread on each plate. Slather
the inside of each piece with the spicy mayonnaise. Add the lettuce,
then turkey, then bacon, and finally the tomato slices. Season with a
bit of fresh black pepper. Close the sandwich, slice in half, and serve.
