Lower Fat BLT


Nonstick cooking spray
8 ounces Canadian-style bacon (eight 1-ounce slices)
4 whole-grain hamburger buns, toasted
4 lettuce leaves
4 large, ripe tomato slices (about 1/2 inch thick)
1/4 cup low-fat, cholesterol-free mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
2 teaspoons Mrs. Dash original seasoning blend


Spray a medium skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Over medium heat, cook bacon
(about 34 slices at a time) on both sides until slightly browned (23 minutes total). Separate toasted hamburger buns. On one side, layer bacon, lettuce, and tomato. In a small bowl, combine dressing ingredients. Spread 1 tablespoon of dressing on the other side of the bun, then join sides to complete the sandwiches.
