In the meantime, spread the toast with light mayonnaise and cover with finely chopped turkey slices, press firmly with your hands. Prunes, pre-soaked for fifteen minutes in warm water, cut into four parts, and cheese - non-thick chunks. Now put the above ingredients on the toast and send everything to the oven for eight minutes. Bacon cut into thin strips and fry in a pan without adding oil. When the product is browned and turns brownish-golden, then it is already prepared. Remove the bread from the oven and place it on a beautiful plate. Then put hot toasts on bacon and pour berry confiture. This dish is well combined with all kinds of pickles, corn, and also with pickled beets. Complex recipes for appetizers for a holiday can be facilitated.
