Ingredients

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

4 slices bacon

1 pound turkey cutlets

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1/3 cup light mayonnaise

2 tablespoons jarred chopped hot peppers

3 cups finely chopped kale (about 3 ounces)

8 thin slices multigrain bread, toasted

Baked potato chips, for serving

Directions

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil and the bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook, turning occasionally, until crisp, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels, leaving the drippings in the pan.
  2. Season the turkey cutlets on both sides with the paprika, thyme and a generous pinch each of salt and pepper. Increase the skillet heat to medium high. Add the turkey and cook, turning once, until just cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board; reserve the pan drippings.
  3. Mix the mayonnaise and chopped peppers in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper and set aside. Put the kale in a medium bowl; add a pinch of salt and the remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil and massage with your fingers until bright green and softened, about 1 minute.
  4. Brush the bread with some of the reserved bacon drippings, then spread with the pepper mayonnaise. Mound the kale on 4 bread slices. Cut the turkey into pieces so that it will fit on the bread and layer on top of the kale. Break the bacon in half and add to the sandwiches. Close with the remaining bread slices. Serve with chips.
