Bacon, Arugula, Tomato Sandwich

Square Roots | 09.22.20

The bacon, lettuce, tomato sandwich is an all-time classic in need of an arugula update. The powerful, nutty flavor of arugula perfectly compliments the juicy tomato and crispy bacon. So, if you’re looking to adult-ify your favorite sandwich, bench the lettuce, and let arugula step up to BAT.

Next-Level Tips
  • Level-up your mayonnaise by stirring in minced garlic, finely chopped basil or chives, salt, and lemon juice.

  • Create your own rub for the bacon (or a roasted, sliced portobello!) by combining brown sugar, chile powder, and paprika. If using a rub, bake your bacon in the oven at 400°F for 18-20 minutes instead of cooking it in a pan.
