Whole grain toast is topped with Sabra’s sea salt and cracked pepper spread, creamy avocado, crispy bacon and ripe tomatoes in this open-faced BLT sandwich recipe.
I’m a huge fan of the traditional BLT but inevitably, I always find myself trying to boost up the total nutrition. Whether it’s adding in a little turkey, spreading on hummus instead of mayo or skipping the 2nd piece of bread and eating it open faced, I’m all about a healthier sandwich.
Fun, easy and always delicious, I decided to kick up my most recent BLT by spreading toasted whole grain bread with Sabra’s newest product: spreads! Available in three great flavors including Garlic Herb, Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper & Honey Mustard, each variety is vegan, gluten-free, kosher and non-dairy.
For my open-faced avocado BLT I decided to go with the Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper flavor to pair bring out the flavor of the creamy avocado and juicy ripe tomatoes. Honey mustard would work well too, especially with the smoky bacon.
The first of its kind to hit shelves, these refrigerated spreads made with hummus can be found in your deli section. What flavor will you try first??
No forks required.
