The first step is to liberally spread mayonnaise on both slices of the sandwich.

Top that with a generous layer of turkey slices.

Cooked bacon slices are next.

I like using a softened, salted butter and spread evenly.

Add butter side down into a hot skillet and butter the top slice. I love this skillet (*affiliate link) because literally nothing sticks! I use it for everything.

Once the sandwich is golden on both sides, remove to a cutting board to slice.
