wednesday night recipe

well, last night's recipe was kind of made-up. i couldn't find one that utilized all of the things i wanted so i combined two ideas. it's nothing new and has been done a million times before but this is what i did: i made a thanksgiving leftover/b.l.t. sandwich and let me tell you it was good!
someone needs a haircut.

steps 1 & 2 & 3: i mixed mayonnaise and room temperature goat cheese together to make the spread. might i suggest using an actual mixer because doing it by hand has somewhat lackluster results, aesthetically speaking. also roast three turkey cutlets (i think that's what their called). how observant you are readers! there are indeed four cutlets in the roasting pan. that's because i made four and promptly realized upon assembling the sandwiches ,that that was too many. then start slow-cooking the bacon. i like to take at least 10-15 minutes for bacon to ensure it is super crispy. sorry there is no photo of the delicious crispy bacon.
steps 4 & 5: butter the bottom toast pieces and set them on the griddle to get all crispy and delicious. then start loading them up with goat cheese mayonnaise, tomato (i used beefsteak because it was the cheapest of the good looking out of season tomatoes at the store), and lettuce (i used romaine and made a salad with the rest of the leaves), and finally the cranberry sauce.
whose label was on upside down. silly jellied cranberry sauce. then put the "lid" of the sandwich on, so to speak and toast it on the other side. everything gets all melty and crispy and salty and sweet. it's just fantastic.
the final product with makeshift salad. don't judge that part please. i needed a salad. and ta da! delicious thanksgivingy b.l.t.'s!! i hope you try that one, it's a good staying in on a cold night and watching movies kind of treat. p.s. it's also paired nicely with red stripe. just sayin'. cheers! financial breakdown is on its way, stay tuned!
