BCT Sandwiches (Bacon, Cucumber and Tomato)

IMG_0651_1

BCT (Bacon, Cucumber and Tomato) sandwiches are a nice little treat for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Instead of a heavy load of bacon, eggs, potatoes and pancakes, a light but filling sandwich is the way I like to roll. Nothing against a big breakfast but after eating that much food I am ready for a very long nap.

A take on the classic BLT, the BCT provides refreshing veggies and the smoky taste of bacon. I first experienced having a breakfast sandwich with BCT when my hubby brought one home from a trip to the gas station that also has a deli inside. It was on a particular Saturday which I deemed cereal day because I was not into making breakfast that day and no one else volunteered. Since hubby wasn’t in the mood for cereal he decided to pick up a breakfast sandwich when he went to get gas (he is such a good multi-tasker). I must say I was a little envious when he showed me his sandwich and I looked down at my soggy cereal.

Needless to say, I decided I could re-create hubby’s Bacon, Cucumber and Tomato sandwich and turn it into a sandwich for breakfast, lunch or dinner. For breakfast and lunch the BCT is pretty straightforward. Although, to elevate the BCT as a lunch sandwich I sometimes add lettuce or fresh baby leaf spinach. For dinner, I will add a few thin slices of turkey breast or smoked salmon with capers.

No matter when you decide to eat a BCT I know you will like it. Especially, if you are tired of cereal.
