Makes three triple deckers

1-2 tablespoon of oil, olive or vegetable

9 slices whole grain bread, lightly toasted

1 package (15 slices) Deli Style Tofurky Oven Roasted Turkey

1 package (14 slices) Litelife Smart Bacon or tempeh bacon

2 vine ripened organic tomatoes, sliced

2 avocados, sliced

8 leaves organic green lettuce leaves, washed and dried

¼ red onion sliced into thin rings (optional)

¼ cup vegan mayo (or sandwich dressing of choice)

3 teaspoons Dijon mustard

 

Heat a skillet on medium. Add the oil and spread evenly into the pan. Use a little more as necessary. Next add the bacon and fry on both sides until lightly crisped. Drain on paper and set aside. Begin assembling the sandwiches. Lay out three columns of three slices of bread. Spread mayo on the first and last slices. Spread mustard on the center slice. On the bottom slices begin with a layer of lettuce followed by the tomato and onion. Cover those with the center slices of bread. Layer on your turkey, then your bacon and finish with the avocado. Season if desired with a little fresh ground black pepper. Top with the last slice and cut in half or cut into the traditional diagonal quarters.

 

Note# Want a great sandwich fast? Sometimes store bought prepared quality ingredients are the way to go, especially when time is of the essence! Shop wisely for packaged goods that have ingredients in them you can read! For these sandwiches, the overall cost of the turkey, bacon, tomato and avocado is about $11.00, or roughly $3.60 per serving. Generous, healthy , delicious and VEGAN!
