Picnic on the Patio: Turkey Lettuce and Tomato in a BunSaturday, August 01, 2015
We are smack dab in the middle of summer and all I want to do is sit outside on my new patio furniture. When lunch time rolls around, I often default to my meal of choice: a good ol' fashioned sandwich. And as summer is the season for picnics, what better way to enjoy my sandwich than with a picnic on the patio. For some picnic inspiration, I turned to LetsDoPicnic.ca. Then I headed to my local Valu-Mart for some President's Choice picnic essentials.
On the menu: a yummy TLT! A turkey, lettuce and tomato sandwich. I picked up a package of Maple Leaf Natural Selections Oven-Roasted Turkey Breast, a bag of Tostitos Yellow Corn Tortilla Chips and a bottle of Pepsi. I didn't buy any bread because, as is often the case, I always have leftover hamburger buns from previous BBQs sitting in the freezer so I thought, why not use them for my TLT sandwich? Here's how you can make your own:
Turkey, Lettuce and Tomato in a Bun
- 2 Wonder hamburger buns
- 6 slices of Maple Leaf Natural Selections Oven-Roasted Turkey Breast
- 4 slices of tomato
- 2-3 romaine lettuce leaves
- 1 tbsp of prepared mustard
- 1 pickle, sliced
- Place three turkey slices on the bottom half of each bun.
- Top each with mustard, lettuce and tomato.
- Cut in half and serve with pickle on the side.
Serve with an ice cold Pepsi, Tostitos tortilla chips and salsa.
