The BAT with Chipotle Garlic Mayo on Nature’s Pride Country White Bread



Nature’s Pride is offering a chance at hotel and airfare for Foodbuzz’s fantastic festival. Well, so I hear it’s fantastic, as every one of my blogging buddies who went last year bragged about it for the next month.

Sadly, I was not there. I felt happy for my friends, but completely green with envy at the same time. I badly want to go this year and am crossing my fingers and toes that I get picked for this opportunity.

Besides, I really want to share this sandwich with everyone I know. It’s swoon worthy. Or maybe that’s just the bacon talking. Either way, I love to share and would have a chance to do so at the festival if picked.

So here’s my entry. Nature’s Pride you make a darn good bread, and I’m hoping this little sandwich is tasty enough to make the cut.

I have a feeling there are going to be a ton of fantastic entries. Please keep your fingers crossed for me! And maybe your eyes, and your toes…
