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