Craving bacon? Love a BLT but hate all the fat and calories? Try this low-calorie, vegetarian alternative that uses provolone instead of bacon, and tastes just as delicious!
“I want to love you, PLT!” Sandwich
- Reduced fat or low sodium Sargento provolone cheese
- Orowheat Healthfull bread (I prefer Hearty Wheat or 10-grain, and they’re only 80 calories a slice!)
- Best Foods canola cholesterol-free mayonnaise
Super easy and simple to make. Throw two slices of provolone on a frying pan. No oil or non-stick spray needed, because the provolone itself has natural oils to aid in the frying. You’ll hear the provolone starting to pop and you’ll see it starting to “breathe.” Flip over the provolone once you see it’s side starting to brown. Then just toast the bread, put 1 tablespoon of mayo on each slice, then add the fried provolone, lettuce, and tomatoes. Enjoy!
