Best Bacon Caprese Sandwich

Best Bacon Caprese Sandwich
  • Basil Garlic Aioli:
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • Sandwich:
  • 7 slices bacon, halved
  • 2 ciabatta rolls, split and toasted
  • 1 (4 ounce) ball fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • 1 heirloom tomato, sliced


  1. Mix mayonnaise, basil, lemon juice, garlic, garlic powder, and lemon zest together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate aioli until ready to use.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place a wire rack inside a baking sheet to catch grease.
  3. Place 3 bacon halves side by side on the wire rack. Weave another 3 to 4 bacon halves over and under those halves to form a square lattice. Repeat with remaining bacon halves.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until browned and crispy, 15 to 20 minutes. Lift bacon lattices off the pan with a spatula onto paper towels.
  5. Spread basil garlic aioli on each ciabatta roll; layer mozzarella slices, tomato, and bacon lattices on top.
