goat cheese pesto BLT

Updated: May 5, 2020

Listen, I love a good sandwich. It's a lunch staple in our home, so I'm always looking for a fun take on go-to classics.

I grew up eating BLTs at home - My mom made them often for lunch or dinner, and I love them!

This weekend I spent time with a sweet, sweet friend of mine who also happens to be one heck of a chef! She always inspires me with her creativity in the kitchen and dishes that are FULL of flavor. For lunch she whipped up a goat cheese pesto BLT that I am STILL thinking about! It's so good that the recipe needs to be in your hands, too!

Give it a try for a freaking delicious but super easy lunch or dinner!


for pesto:

1/2 cup of olive oil

4 cups of packed spinach

2 cloves of garlic

2 tbsp lemon juice

1/4 cup parmesan cheese

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

4 oz. goat cheese

for sandwich:

whole grain bread

romaine or arugula

turkey bacon



1. For the pesto, add all ingredients (except for goat cheese) to a food processor and blend until smooth. You may have to use a spatula to scrape the sides then blend again. Once blended, stir in goat cheese.

2. To cook turkey, preheat your oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place turkey slices on paper. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until you reach preferred crispiness.

3. On toasted bread, spread pesto on each slice. Then layer on tomato slices, lettuce, and bacon.

4. Enjoy immediately!
