Bacon, Spinach and Sun Dried Tomato Turkey-Avocado Club Sandwich

Ingredients

  • 3 slices sourdough
  • 1 tsp butter, room temp
  • 1 1/2 TB grated parmesan
  • 2 TB sun dried tomato aioli (directions below) 
  • 4 slices maple, or other artisan bacon (or plain bacon brushed with maple syrup), cooked crispy 
  • ½ cup packed baby spinach leaves, stems removed
  • 6 Bella Sun Luci sun dried tomato halves, drained, oil reserved for another day
  • 3 oz turkey, sliced thin
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced and seasoned with a teeny pinch of salt and 3 twists of the pepper mill

Directions

  • For the aioli, purée together: 1 cup mayonnaise (preferably home made), 1 garlic clove and 1 cup sun dried tomato halves (you’ll have a lot left over so make less if you prefer).
  • Lightly toast 1 slice of the sourdough separately, for the middle of the sandwich.
  • For the 2 parmesan coated slices of bread, use ½ tsp butter per slice of bread, spread evenly.
  • Sprinkle each buttered side with ½ TB parmesan.
  • On a griddle or in a pan, cook the slices of bread, cheese side down, until golden brown.
  • Place the bread slices on a cutting board cheese side down.
  • Spread 1 tsp aioli evenly on each slice of bread.
  • On one slice, layer the bacon, then spinach, then sun dried tomatoes.
  • Put the plain slice of bread on, spread 1 tsp aioli on top of that, then layer the turkey and avocado on top.
  • Top the stack with the other slice of bread, cheese side up.
  • Press down gently to help it hold together.
  • Stick 2 frill picks into it, equidistant, in what will be the center of each of the 2 pieces of sandwich.
  • Cut in half on the bias and serve.
