Turkey Bacon Guacamole Sandwich

A beautiful quote by Dalai Lama says "Sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck." It is no wonder that our heart sometimes craves for something that would do more harm than good. We fall in love with wrong people, desperately crave for them, cry our heart out, and get into depression for not having the one we desire, but time has its wonderful way of showing that not always the things we crave for are good for us in the long run. You may have seen it yourself that with some people the chemistry just clicks without any problem and with some people, no matter how hard you try, something untoward as if pre-destined happens impeding the growth of a viable relationship. This Universe works in a mysterious way in conspiring events, leading to an ultimate epiphany.

Years ago I read in a journal about a woman betrothed to a man who declined the marriage because of some issue and later the girl got married to somebody else. Within less than a year she came to know of the former fiancé having died in an accident. Fate or the Universe or whatever you call it saved her from an early widowhood. Similarly, one couple was on the verge of divorce, living separately and contesting in court when the wife met an accident and went into coma. The husband, shaken by the incident, started spending more of his time with his comatose wife fighting for survival. Years later the wife regained consciousness and both coalesced into a happy union keeping their past grievances behind.
In my personal life also, I have had the same epiphany while celebrating our 5th anniversary. No one else would have been more appropriate for me other than him :)

Anyway, coming back to the recipe, in my earlier entry, you have found the recipe of guacamole and now with this recipe, you may learn how to use guacamole to make a perfect gourmet sandwich. I just love the creamy texture of avocado in each bite. It is absolutely aphrodisiac.
Ingredients:                                                           Cooking time: 15 minutes
ü  1 boneless turkey breast (boiled and shredded)
ü  3 bacon strips 
ü  1 cup guacamole

ü  Jack Colby cheese (grated), as per your measurement
ü  Cheddar Cheese (grated), as per your measurement
ü  Butter, for spreading (optional)

1) Fry the bacon strips till crisp. Pat dry.
2) Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Then put some cheddar cheese on one slice topped with lettuce leaf, shredded turkey, guacamole, bacon strip and jack cheese. Close the sandwich with another slice of bread.
3) Grill the sandwich using a sandwich maker till cheese melts. Enjoy!
