    KissKiss's Note:

    Since there are so few ingredients, going low-fat on any of them would really compromise the flavor. This should only be made in the summer when tomatoes are perfectly ripe. This makes two sandwiches.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • salt and pepper
    • 4 slices tomatoes (must be ripe and fairly large)
    • 6 -8 slices bacon
    • 4 slices bread (or 2 split buns, use your favorite of either)
    • 6 leaves iceberg lettuce
    • 2 tablespoons buttermilk ranch dressing (Hidden Valley Ranch)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Season the tomato slices with salt and pepper and allow to rest on paper towels to absorb liquid.
    2. 2
      In a large cast iron skillet, cook the bacon until crisp (about 15-20 minutes) and drain on a paper towel.
    3. 3
      Pour off the bacon fat (but save it for other recipes!) leaving a tiny coating of fat in the pan. Over a very low heat, put the slices of bread in the skillet and warm/toast them on both sides until lightly browned (about 3-4 minutes total).
    4. 4
      Remove bread from the skillet and, for each sandwich, top one bread slice with 2 tomatoes, 3-4 slices bacon, 3 lettuce leaves, and 1 tbsp dressing; top with the other bread slice and serve immediately.

      I love BLTs and really enjoyed the change of pace using ranch dressing instead of mayo. Will definitely make this again!

      I usually have B-B-Q sauce on my BLT's so the ranch dressing made a very nice change, I cooked my bacon in the oven and toasted my wholemeal/wholegrain bread in the electric toaster otherwise assembled as directed and thoroughly enjoyed, thank you KissKiss, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.
