This tomato-bacon sandwich is far from your everyday Southern Tomato Tea Sandwich! It is packed with lots of flavors and textures yet it is simple to put the ingredients together.
Start with a toasted bread round, add some peppery tasting arugula next, top with a slice of fresh tomato tossed with a little olive oil, and fresh chopped basil, a dollop of Remoulade Sauce and finished with some candied bacon bits.
Yep! That is how it is done. It does take a little prep work but so worth it. Here is my favorite Remoulade Sauce recipe. . .
- 2 1/2 cups mayonnaise (I use Duke’s)
- 1 cup spicy mustard
- 2 tablespoons fresh juice
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1/3 cup finely diced sweet onion
- 1/3 cup rinsed and drained chopped capers
- Dash or two of hot sauce
- Salt and pepper
Combine the first seven ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Enjoy! Wonder what I’ll cook up next?
