Bacon, Peach & Arugula Sandwiches

OMG, this is the best summer sandwich I’ve ever had!  So flippin’ good.  I have never been a huge fan of sandwiches, but I married into a family of sammy fanatics.  So they’ve grown on me over the years, especially my hubby’s ruben (that’s his specialty).  I am now obsessed with Schmidt’s (review to come soon) and delicious homemade sammies.

It’s a perfect blend of flavors and textures…and it doesn’t hurt that I could eat that basil may with a spoon.  Make this soon while the peaches are super juicy!
peach/bacon/arugula sammie 1 peach/bacon/arugula sammie 2

you will need:
8 slices thick-cut bacon
½ cup packed fresh basil
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
salt & pepper
¼ cup mayo
8 thick slices multigrain bread
3 peaches, thinly sliced
2 handfulls baby arugula

Cook the back on a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 8 minutes.  Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain, then cut each slice in half

While the back is cooking, place the basil, oil, citrus juice, salt and pepper in a small food processor.  Pulse until smooth.  Add the mayo and pulse again until just combined.

Heat your oven broiler to low.  Put the bread on a baking sheet and put under the broiler for about 3 minutes, just enough to crisp it up a tiny bit.  Spread each side with the basil mayo.  Divide the beaches, bacon and arugula on 4 of the slices.  Top with remaining slices of bread, then slice in half and serve

serves: 4
time: 20 minutes
