TBA (Turkey, Bacon, Avocado) on Tomato Basil

Published February 12, 2013 by jenmatteson

If you haven’t tried this tomato basil bread yet, you’re really missing out.  What are you waiting for?  Of course I just made it on Saturday night, and so I was dying to make a sandwich with it for lunch on Sunday.  It snowed all day on Sunday, and while Nate headed out to shovel for the second time, I started these sandwiches.  To take it to the next level, I even broke out the Panini press!  Oh yeah 😉

I added a little mozzarella to Nate’s sandwich (we had a tiny bit in the fridge that I just wanted to use up), but of course I loved it without .  There was so much flavor, I wouldn’t even know where to begin explaining it.  Crisp salty bacon, creamy avocado, oven roasted turkey, and fresh, fluffy tomato and basil bread.  It was a perfect little lunch on a snowy day.  I also brough one for lunch today – minus the bacon and Panini pressed part.  Looking forward to lunch in a few minutes…
