  • 6 slices (about 1/2-inch thick) white Pullman loaf
  • 6 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon mustard (optional)
  • 4 large leaves greenleaf lettuce
  • 3 ounces thickly sliced deli turkey
  • 6 strips thick-cut bacon, cooked until crisp
  • 1 large beefsteak tomatoes (about 6 ounces), sliced

  1. 1

    Spread both sides of each bread slice with 4 tablespoons mayonnaise. Toast bread in 2 batches over medium heat, about 5 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking. Transfer to cooling rack.

  2. 2

    Spread 4 slices of bread with remaining mayonnaise and mustard. To build sandwiches, arrange 1 lettuce leaf on 1 piece of mayo-mustard-spread toast. Top with turkey, then toast, then lettuce, bacon, and tomatoes. Season tomatoes with salt and pepper. Top with remaining slices of bread and secure each with 4 toothpicks. Cut each sandwich in quarters. Serve.
