What You'll Need

  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 avocado
  • 4 butter lettuce leaves
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise

For the glazed turkey bacon:

  • 8 slices turkey bacon
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

Make the glazed turkey bacon:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400º and line a sheet pan with aluminum foil or a silicon baking mat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the sriracha, brown sugar, soy sauce, and black pepper. Stir to combine.
  3. Arrange the turkey bacon slices on the prepared sheet tray in an even layer.
  4. Brush each slice evenly with the sriracha glaze.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until cooked through and crispy around the edges. (As it cools, it will continue to crisp.)

Prep the remaining ingredients:

  1. While the turkey bacon is cooking, slice the tomato and avocado into thin slices.
  2. Place two slices of the bread into the toaster together. This will help the bread toast on one side, but stay soft and chewy on the other.

Assemble the sandwiches:

  1. Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on each slice of bread on the untoasted side.
  2. Layer the glazed turkey bacon, lettuce, tomato, and avocado, and top with another prepared slice of bread.
  3. Cut in half (this is key!) and enjoy.
