Cream Cheese and "Bacon" Sandwiches

There's more to these than cream cheese and bacon. Even though a simple recipe, the combination of ingredients is a little unusual, and too tasty to keep a secret. This recipe makes two sandwiches.


4 fluid oz. Cream Cheese
2   ScallionsWash, strip outer leaf, cut off root, and slice thinly from the white bottom up to the tender green
2 tbsp CeleryFinely mince; this really contributes both in taste and texture
¼ tsp Dill
4   Bacon Strips, VegetarianMorningstar makes the best I know
½ cup TomatoesGrape variety works well, sliced about one quarter inch
3 tbsp Mayonnaise
¼ tsp SaltOr, to taste
¼ tsp Black PepperOr, to taste


1 Of course you'll need some good bread. Something with subtle flavor works well so as not to overpower the filling flavors. I often use homemade white, lightly toasted.
2 Get the cream cheese out of the refrigerator to allow it to soften some. While not a necessity, it eases preparation.
3 In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, scallion, celery, and dill.
4 Cook the veggie bacon strips to your preference.
5 Spread two slices of the bread with the cream cheese mixture.
6 Distribute sliced tomatoes on top, gently pushing them into the cream cheese. Sprinkly the tomatoes with salt and pepper.
7 Place the veggie bacon on top of the tomatoes.
8 Spread mayonnaise on the remaining bread slices and place them on top of the bacon.
