Photo: Oxmoor House
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)
Combine sweet raspberry spread with Dijon to make a savory-sweet sandwich topping that complements the bacon and the smoky chipotle chile in this hearty gluten-free sandwich.    It’s like a BLT, but with spinach and onion in place of the lettuce and tomato.


  • 3 tablespoons seedless raspberry fruit spread
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons country-style Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chipotle chile, canned in adobo sauce {Check for Gluten}
  • 8 (1-ounce) slices gluten-free bread, lightly toasted
  • 8 center-cut bacon slices, cooked
  • 4 thin slices red onion
  • 2 cups baby spinach

  2. Top evenly with bacon, onion, spinach, and remaining bread slices, pressing down slightly.

  3. This sandwich is very easy to make and has a great combo of sweet, savory, salty, and spicy. This relish is also delicious spread on a panini sandwich with grilled, sliced chicken and cheese. —Martine Giddings
