Customize with an egg or avocado to make this a breakfast sandwich, or try a different type of bread.  Honey mustard potato salad makes a great side to this BLT!


1 pound
bacon (peppered)
8 ounces
cheese, Neufchatel
1/4 cup
tomato, sun-dried (oil cured, chopped)
1 clove
garlic (peeled)
2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon
basil, fresh (chopped)
8 slices
bread, sourdough
2 ounces
tomato, heirloom (large)


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place 12 slices of bacon in a single layer on a parchment-lined sheet pan and bake about 20 minutes until crispy. Remove from heat and place on paper towels to remove excess fat. In a food processor, combine the Neufchâtel cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, mayonnaise, vinegar and basil and blend until smooth. Slice the tomatoes into 8 to 12 slices about 3⁄8 -inch thick. Lightly toast the bread and spread each slice with the cheese blend. On four of the pieces of toasted bread, place 2 or 3 tomato slices, a small handful of arugula and 3 pieces of bacon. Top each with another slice of toast, cheese side down. Cut in half diagonally and serve.
