This bread-free BLT is made for bacon lovers. Creamy, cool, refreshing, and packed with crispy bacon and still healthy. It's like a summer[ salad you can enjoy on the go.]
- 6 slices bacon (about 6 ounces)
- 1 head iceberg lettuce (2 to 2 1/2 pounds)
- 2 tablespoons 2-percent Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 small tomato, cut into 4 slices
Special equipment: parchment paper
Position a rack in the top third of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then arrange the bacon slices in a single layer on top. Bake until the bacon is golden brown and crispy, 15 to 20 minutes, flipping once halfway through. Transfer the bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate to absorb any excess fat, cool and then cut each slice in half making 12 smaller strips.
Meanwhile, from the top and 3 sides of the lettuce, slice 4 round "cheeks" 4 to 5 inches across to make 2 "buns".
Assemble the sandwiches: On a work surface, lay the lettuce "buns" cut side up and spread 1 tablespoon lemon-pepper sauce on each side. Lay six strips of bacon on each bottom bun and top with two slices of tomato. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and sandwich with remaining lettuce buns.
