Yummy Gluten-free Summer Sandwich
I made these sandwiches last week when my mom was in town. They turned out VERY good and a quick dinner to throw together, this will be a good meal when you are in a rush. I used Udi's gluten free bagels which are really good, so I highly suggest them. Occasionally there are 1$ off coupons on my blog here for Udi's brand products, so look for them :)
I actually had summer BLTs on my menu for the week, but after finishing my shopping and driving home I realized I forgot Bacon! Well, what can I substitute? I am forever making things from whatever I have on hand, I often start a recipe and realize oh no I don't have that....what else would work? Most of the time it turns out fine, sometimes I discover a new recipe....although a few times my husband and I decide "better follow the recipe next time" Ha! So I used lunch meat, instead of bacon and I actually just warmed it up for a few seconds in a skillet, it was just as good and cooked up much quicker.
Gluten-free bagels (Udi's brand), toasted & buttered
Sliced turkey, heated up, Salami heated up, Cooked bacon (whatever meat you prefer)
Tomato- sliced, Lettuce, Onion-sliced, avocado-sliced- this is a must!!
Spinach artichoke dip (any favorite dip will work, I picked up this one from Costco and I had purchased it for chips originally. I made potato salad at my in-laws and I left my mayo & mustard at their house, so had to figure out, "what else would work".)
Assemble sandwiches, serve with chips & fresh fruit. Very easy, quick and the dip, instead of the regular condiments really made it different, felt like a deli had made it. Enjoy!
