Smoked Turkey BLT with Fresh Cayenne Chipotle Mayo

Smoked Turkey BLT

While water­ing our herbs and cayenne pep­per plant this after­noon I noticed that we have sev­eral pep­pers that have finally ripened. We’ve been using them green for a few months, but now, they are a bril­liant red. I wanted to do some­thing with one of them today and I’ve been crav­ing a good BLT lately.

Fresh Cayenne Peppers

I decided to use the pep­pers and make a spicy mayo for the sand­wich – a fan­tas­tic move. Here’s the ingredients:

1 fresh cayenne pep­per
1/8 tea­spoon chipo­tle pow­der
1/4 tea­spoon adobo
2 table­spoons mayonnaise

Mince pep­per and add to Mayo (seeds and all for an extra spicy kick). Crush the pep­per bits into the mayo. Add the chipo­tle and adobo and mix well.

I spread this rather lib­er­ally onto two slices of nice fresh seven-grain bread. I rolled the turkey slices and placed them on the bread along with bacon and a cou­ple sliced of muen­ster cheese.

building a BLT

This went into a 350º pre­heated toaster oven, open-faced for about 5 min­utes until the cheese melted. I topped it with fresh slices of tomato and a cou­ple leaves of romaine lettuce.

The mayo was the star of this sand­wich by far added a nice bit of tang and spice. All around, an easy and really tasty sand­wich for a lazy Saturday afternoon.

    I am sure you could! I think from start to fin­ish it only took me 10 minutes.

    Oh man. Muenster cheese. Word! And heated open face makes any sand­wich that much bet­ter. Generally when I think of a BLT, it’s straight up bacon let­tuce and tomato. Bringing the turkey and spicy mayo…very nice. Will have to give it a go.
