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
Lettuce
Tomato
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!

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter spread or spray
Garlic powder
Morton’s Lite salt
Newman’s Own light balsamic vinegar
Lemon juice
Fresh tomatoes
Spinach
Basil (optional)
Lite cheese (optional)
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Coat bread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter spread/spray. Sprinkle garlic powder and lite salt on bread to taste. Place bread on an un-greased cookie sheet and place the cookie sheet on the top rack of the oven for about 3-5 minutes.
Finely chop tomatoes, basil and spinach. Mix together in a small bowl with 1 tablespoon of light balsamic and lemon juice to taste (I prefer more lemon to balsamic). Add a pinch of salt and garlic to the mix. 
Remove bread from oven once lightly brown and crispy. Add vegetable mix to the bread and serve, place vegetable mix in a bowl on the side for guests to add their own topping, or place vegetable mix and light cheese onto bread then stick bread back into the oven for 1-2 minutes.
Best enjoyed with chicken or pasta on the side!
