Tips & Suggestions

1 You can find Food for Life breads in the frozen food area of most large supermarkets. You can, of course, use any healthy bread you desire.

2 Give this sandwich a little "kick" by stirring 1/4 tsp (or less) of Sriracha sauce into the mayo.

3 Applegate bacon takes me back to the way bacon tasted when I was growing up in the 1950's & 60's, not like the stuff they try to pawn off today as bacon. You'll find Applegate products in most large supermarkets, generally in the deli dept.

4 Claussen refrigerated mini dill pickles are my favorites, as they have a nice crunch to them... or use whatever brand or type you prefer.
