Classic BLT Sandwich

"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!)"

directions

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

    The only tweak would be to use a bacon weave, then you get bacon in every bite.

    If you want to up your BLT, use beer candied bacon (recipe is posted here).

    Hard to believe a BLT needs a recipe. Fry (or microwave) bacon, slice a ripe tomato, rip some lettuce leaves off a head of it, toast some bread, and slather on mayo of choice (I prefer Blue Plate, made with yolks only, not whole eggs). Yes, mix it up a bit with avocado or cheese or sprouts or a fried egg if you want. BLTs are the epitome of summer deliciousness.

    You need to add avocado to your ingredient list.
