Turtle Island Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich


TLT with a grilled potato. That is tempeh bacon, lettuce and tomato on grilled sourdough bread.

I cooked everything on the grill except for the lettuce and tomato. I brushed the bread with a little Earth Balance and put it on the grill for about two minutes on each side. I even grilled the smoked tempeh. I brushed the tempeh with a little maple syrup before tossing it on the grill. The tempeh only took a,few minutes on each side.

To assemble, I smeared the bread with Earth Balance mayo, then a couple of tomato slices, the Tofurky and then the lettuce. The sandwich was served with a grilled potato. I cooked the potato in the microwave until it was almost soft. This took 5 minutes. The potato is then cut in half. Margarine was smeared on the potato, along with a little salt and pepper. The potato was on the grill for 10 minutes.


  • Thanks for stopping by. I love visiting your blog. Your pictures are incredible. Yes, you can microwave a potato! You just have to put a few holes in the skin so it does not explode.

  • Hi Kathy! I’m not a vegan but I do love vegan recipes and eating vegan several times a week. Your sandwich looks incredible. I’ll have to see if I can find the tempeh bacon. Also I didn’t know you could cook potatoes in the microwave:)

    Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my blog.
