    Stacky5's Note:

    This is a sandwich that I crave a lot. I am just posting it because I couldn't find it posted already on the Zaar...I couldn't believe that! My ex-DH wondered how I make these, so I decided to post it and send him the recipe. Nothing fancy -- just the real, simple, unabridged version. UPDATE: After reading Peg629's review, I have tried it that way, with one slice of toast spread with yellow mustard, and I must say it really, really makes an exceptional BLT! Such a subtle difference, yet genuinely makes a superior BLT, in my opinion! (Thank you Peg629 for that awesome suggestion!)

    Serves: 4


    sandwic ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cook bacon until crispy, then drain on paper towels.
    2. 2
      Toast the 8 slices of bread.
    3. 3
      Spread 1 tablespoon mayo on each slice of toasted bread. (More or less, to taste).
    4. 4
      Add 1 slice of lettuce to 4 pieces of mayo-spreaded toast.
    5. 5
      Add 2 slices of tomato on top of lettuce.
    6. 6
      Arrange 3 slices of bacon evenly on top of tomato. (Break bacon slices in half to fit, if needed.).
    7. 7
      Add 1 slice of lettuce on top of bacon.
    8. 8
      Put the remaining 4 pieces of mayo-spreaded toast on top to finish the sandwiches.
    9. 9
    10. 10
      NOTE: I also like to butter the toast slices before adding the mayo -- higher in fat, but tastier, in my opinion!

      Made this for dinner using Chef #67103 's Barefoot Contessa's Oven Roasted Bacon and of course, this classic sandwich is DELICIOUS! Next time I think I'll try the suggestion of mustard on one slice of the bread! Stacky.... you will ge greatly missed!!!

      It does not get any better than a BLT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I used Barefoot Contessa's Oven Roasted Bacon recipe and it was totally easy to put this together with no mess!!! I definitely love that you listed Hellmann's mayonnaise as the mayo to use because if you're gonna do it with bacon, do it right and don't use nasty Miracle Whip or some other thing besides real mayonnaise!!! Thanks, Stacky!!

      This is my favorite way to make a BLT (on toast) and, in fact, is one of my favorite foods in all the world. If you add another slice of toast and sliced turkey meat it becomes the old favorite "Club Sandwich". I really dislike when either of these is served on rolls, as the delicate crispness of the toast really puts this sandwich over the top! I really am glad you posted the recipe on Zaar, because it would be a shame if say, 20 or 30 years from now, no one would know what a BLT is. Stranger things have happened than people forgetting what BLTs are. Thanks for posting!
