- 3 slices toasted white bread
- 4 1/2 teaspoons mayonnaise
- 3 ounces sliced turkey breast (deli-sliced)
- 2 iceberg lettuce leaves
- 2 to 3 slices cooked bacon
- 2 tomato slices
1. Spread about 1 1/2 teaspoons mayonnaise on one side of each toasted white bread slice.
2. Arrange the turkey breast on one slice of toast.
3. Tear or fold one iceberg lettuce leaf to fit on the sliced turkey.
4. Stack on another slice of toast with the mayo side facing up.
5. Break 2 or 3 slices of cooked bacon to fit on top of the second slice of toast.
6. Tear or fold the second lettuce leaf to fit on top of bacon.
7. Arrange the two tomato slices to fit on the lettuce.
8. Top off the sandwich with the last piece of toast turned with the mayo-coated side facing down.
9. Pierce the sandwich with four toothpicks between the corners, so that when the sandwich is sliced from corner to corner, then the other way from corner to corner, with a serrated knife, the toothpicks wind up in the center of each of the four slices.
