B.O.A.T. Sandwiches

  • SERVINGS: 6
  • BASIC-EASY
  • FAST

Made with bacon, olive paste, arugula and tomatoes, these sandwiches are a twist on the ordinary BLT. If you don't have a stove or a microwave oven, use thin slices of prosciutto—uncooked—instead of bacon.

  1. 12 bacon slices (12 ounces)
  2. 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  3. 1 tablespoon black olive paste
  4. 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  5. 12 slices peasant bread, toasted
  6. 1 bunch of arugula (5 ounces), large stems discarded
  7. 3 tomatoes, thinly sliced
  1. In a large skillet or a microwave oven, cook half of the bacon until crisp, about 5 minutes; drain. Repeat with the remainder of the bacon.
  2. Stir together the mayonnaise, olive paste and vinegar. Spread the mayonnaise mixture on 6 of the bread slices, layer the bacon, arugula and tomatoes on top and sandwich with the remaining slices of bread.
