2 large heirloom tomatoes, sliced 1/4" thick

Sea salt

8 slices bacon

12 slices Pullman bread, 1/2" thick, toasted

1/2 c. mayonnaise

  1. Place tomatoes on a paper towel-lined cutting board and sprinkle with sea salt. Set aside.

  2. Preheat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Place bacon in an even layer and cook until crisp, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

  3. Place toast on a cutting board and spread with a layer of mayonnaise. Top with alternating layers of mortadella, spinach, bacon, tomatoes and cheese. Top with another piece of toast and spread with a layer of pesto, then alternating layers of ham, artichoke hearts, salami and spinach. Spread the last pieces of toast with mayonnaise and place on top. Garnish with pickles and secure sandwiches with toothpicks.
