Number of Servings:


  1. - Brioche or white bread crust removed, cut into 2-x-2-inch squares
  2. - melted butter
  3. - good quality bacon look for thick cut
  4. - chiffonade iceberg lettuce
  5. - cherry tomatoes cut in halves
  6. - basil pesto store-bought works fine
  7. - mayonnaise
  8. - homemade or store-bought red wine vinaigrette


To Prepare Bread:
Cut bread into 2-x-2-inch pieces. Brush with melted butter and bake in 350 degree F oven until lightly golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside.

To Prepare Bacon:
Layout bacon in parchment lined baking pan. Cook bacon in oven at 350 degrees F until crispy, about 15-20 minutes. Cut bacon into 1-1/2 inch pieces.

To Prepare Lettuce:
Ribbon cut or chiffonade the iceberg into 1-inch "threads"; set iceberg aside.

To Prepare Mayo Dressing:
Take about 2 tablespoons of basil pesto to 1 cup mayonnaise. Combine pesto and mayo to make a "pesto" mayo; set aside.

To Assemble:
Mix chiffonade iceberg with the red wine vinaigrette (not too much - don't want it soaked, just lightly dressed). Take toasted bread and smear on some of the pesto mayo. Place a piece of bacon on top. Take a small pinch of the dressed iceberg and place on top of bacon. Top with a halved cherry tomato.
