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!

Yep this was totally great. I made these as mini sandwiches for a gathering of ladies they all kept going back for more. I followed another reviewers advice and used yellow mustard on one slice. One other tip from me: After slicing the tomatoes, I laid the slices on a stack of paper towels, sprinkled just a little salt on top. Allowed them to sit for a few minutes while I worked on the other parts of the sandwich. Then right before assembly, piled a few other paper towels and a plate on top of the slices and inverted them. This reduced some of the wetness of the tomato and removed most of the bitter seeds. They were awesome. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

This was amazing! We used our fresh beefsteak tomatoes, fresh romain, with Dukes mayo (creamier). We also added a few small pieces of Tillamook cheddar cheese. Mmmm. Definitely my go-to for the best BLT.

Great! Being a Southerner I used Dukes instead of Hellmans.
