The World's Best B L T Sandwich

"So simple, and yet so many subtle differences transform "good" to "world's best." the way a sandwich is assembled is key to how good it tastes. A gread sandwich is never dry (too bready). I pull out and discard all the soft white centers from baguettes, leaving two cano-shaped halves. This hollowed out bread is then packed full and doused with a generous splash of "house" dressing. Closing one of these sandwiches is like shutting an overpacked suitcase!"

directions

  • First make the house dressing, by combining all ingredients in a blender except for the olive oil.
  • With the motor running, very slowly drizzle in the olive oil and mix until it is fully combined.
  • Under a broiler or on a griddle, lightly toast the inside of the baguette.
  • Combine the mayonnaise and pesto.
  • Spread the pesto mayonnaise all over the inside of both halves of the baguette.
  • Lay the bacon along the length of the bottom half of the bread.
  • Lay the tomato slices on top of the bacon and drizzle with the house dressing.
  • Fill the remaining cavity with the lettuce leaves.
  • Close the sandwich tightly.
  • Cut on the diagonal with a sharp serrated knife into 2 to 4 pieces.
  • You may need toothpicks to keep the sandwiches together.

    This was the best BLT I've ever had. I followed the recipe exactly except for the bread. I used Brioche buns. I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you for the recipe.

    No complaints here, the only thing I did different was added avocado. Will make again and again!

    I have a very picky husby, and he doesn't care for "new" takes on old recipes. I snuck this on his plate though and he LOVED it!!<br/>Thank you for the great spin on a classic.
