A better BLT

How do make the perfect indulgent sandwich a little lighter? Use portabella mushrooms instead of bread!



This open-face sandwich – though maybe not exactly healthy – is a lot lighter than your standard BLT. There’s no bread and instead of gloppy mayo I whipped up some goat cheese goodness (with bacon and horseradish).



A better BLT:

2 portabella mushrooms
2 handfuls of Arugula
4 slices of tomato
5-1,000,000 slices of bacon – cooked to your liking (I like just before super crispy)
4 tbsp goat cheese spread (see below)


Goat Cheese Spread:
½ goat cheese
2 slices of extra crispy bacon – crumbled
2 tbsp horseradish
Milk to thin


Brush the portabellas with olive oil and grill them – on a griddle or grill or use a frying pan pressing down with a weight – flipping after about 6 minutes. Cook until just cooked through – stick a knife through the thickest part, if it goes in easily without much pressure it’s ready!




Take your cooked portabella and spread it with 2 tablespoons of the goat cheese awesomeness. Place 2 tomato slices, then bacon, then a handful of Arugula. Eat and feel good knowing that your BLT is a little bit healthier. Then eat doughnuts.
