BLT – Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich
Nothing beats a good old-fashioned BLT. Extra crispy bacon & fresh tomatoes always hit the spot.
Oh how I miss the tomatoes back east. Living in Las Vegas, fresh tomatoes are out of the question. A few years ago my step-mother, Glenda, sent me a box of fresh-from-her-garden tomatoes via UPS. It was one of the greatest gifts, EVER!!! I don’t know what she paid in shipping, but it was worth every penny.
BLT - Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich
- 1 pound bacon
- 2 large, fresh tomatoes
- 8 leaves lettuce
- 8 slices of bread
- Fry bacon over med-high heat. The crispier, the better.
- Clean and slice tomatoes.
- Wash and leaf lettuce.
- Toast bread.
- Assemble each sandwich by spreading a glob of mayonnaise on a slice of bread. Add 4 pieces of bacon on top. Place 3 slices of tomato, then 2 leaves of lettuce and top with another slice of bread.
- Cut diagonally. It doesn't taste as good if cut horizontally, really 😉
Age-old question, mayonnaise or Miracle Whip? When I was a kid it was Miracle Whip, now only mayonnaise. I prefer Best Foods or Hellman’s.
Soup goes really good with a sandwich. We have a great collection of Soup Recipes.
Enjoy, Jerry & Roni !!!
