2 slices Oroweat® Whole Grains Health Nut® bread ½ oz low fat mayonnaise 2 oz smoked salmon, sliced 1-2 thick slices fresh ripe tomato 2 slices thin, crispy bacon 1/4 avocado 1-2 large leaves butter lettuce
Toast bread. On one slice spread mayonnaise. On other half, spread avocado. Lay bacon, tomato, lettuce, and salmon on one piece. Press the slices together and enjoy.
Take that, Top Chef!
