Servings: 4 Prep 10 mins Bake 400°F 20 mins Grill 8 mins

Ingredients

  • 8 slices Niman Ranch double-smoked bacon
  • 1 large tomato, sliced into four 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 4 leaves romaine lettuce
  • 1 avocado, halved and pitted (optional)
  • 8 slices country white bread
  • 1/4 cup chipotle mayonnaise (such as Sir Kensington)

Make It

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees . Place bacon strips on a rimmed baking sheet fitted with a wire rack. Bake bacon at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, until crisp.

2. Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Coat grill lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Grill tomato slices 1 to 2 minutes per side, until grill marks appear. Grill romaine leaves 1 minute per side. (If using avocado, grill 2 minutes on cut side, then peel and slice.) Grill bread 30 seconds to 1 minute per side.

3. Spread 1 tbsp chipotle mayonnaise on 4 of the bread slices. Place 2 bacon slices on top of each, along with a slice of grilled tomato, half a romaine leaf and, if desired, an avocado slice. Top with remaining 4 bread slices.
