Expert Tips

One of America’s best-loved sandwiches is the BLT, featuring summer’s ripe, juicy tomatoes. In our sandwich, bacon-flavored vegetable protein bits mixed into the mayonnaise capture the BLT’s signature smoky flavor.

Bacon-flavored vegetable protein bits are made from soybeans and wheat. Look for the bits next to the salad dressing in the grocery store. After opening the container, store the bits in the refrigerator.

Your favorite whole-grain bread can be used in place of the white bread.

Avocados are high in heart-healthy monounsaturated fat and are low in cholesterol. They are also a very good source of potassium and contain dietary fiber.
