Your favorite BLT recipes [moved from General Chowhounding Topics]

I am going to make BLT's for dinner tonight. Does anyone have a favorite twist on an old favorite?

  1. I love the traditional - bacon, lettuce, tomato and mayo on potato bread. Sometimes I grind black pepper over the mayo during assembly. Rich, ripe tomatoes are key.

    1. Add avocado...use blue cheese...substitute apple for the tomato...

      1. This should probably be in home cooking.

        While I love a traditional BLT, NOTHING beats a BLT with avocado. I like mine on toasted whole wheat bread, a good amount of Best Foods mayo, 4 slices of extra-crispy bacon, lettuce, sliced tomato lightly salted, and a generous amount of perfectly ripe sliced avocado. I would have to say that this is just about my all-time favorite sandwich!

        1. Not a BLT really ( no lettuce). Cook up some bacon, toast your favorite bread ( I like to use scali). Top the toast with the bacon, add good tomatoes ( I usually use sliced grape tomatoes in the winter), top with your favotire cheese ( I love bleu), and pop under the broiler until bubbly. WIth a salad and a glass of wine, makes an tasty, quick meal.

          1. I always like a BLT&C - with cheese. A hearty cheddar is a great choice. And I agree with macca - toasted scali bread is excellent for this sandwich.
