Mushroom BLT

Mushroom BLT
Mushroom BLT

A plant-based BLT? FOR REAL? Believe it. This bad boy is the ultimate sharing sandwich.

We fry mushrooms to create our crispy “bacon” pieces, then pile it high with good stuff. We say it’s a “sharing” sandwich, but you don’t have to share if you don’t want to. We won’t judge.

This is an absolutely scrumptious plant-based lunch idea, we know you are going to love it!
