I don’t really care what time of the year it is, there is just something about BLT’s on a Saturday afternoon that bring me comfort. Right now I’m pregnant with twins and bacon is one of my most craved items along with avacados. With those two powers combined, I made up these super simple, super delicious BLT’s that I think you will really enjoy! Here’s how you can make the utlimate BLT recipe at home!
- Lettuce- pick your favorite!
- Tomato- I like Brandywine, Beef Steak or Mortgage Lifter tomatoes because they have less water and more tomato to them. These are also the ones I grow each summer for just such sandwiches!
- Bread- I’m using The Big 16 Sprouted Grain bread from Super Target. I like it’s texture better than Ezekiel sprouted bread.
- Salt/Pepper to taste
Step 1: A few Saturday’s a month I cook a big batch of bacon for breakfast and save the leftovers for lunch. I like to bake mine in the oven using a mini muffin pan to not only catch the grease but also to make the bacon a little crispier. I simply load the bacon on the tray, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and pop it in so that the bacon cooks as the oven temp rises and then I pull it out when it looks to be crispy enough for my liking.
Step 2: Pop the bread in the toaster and then add some mayo! I only use Dukes Brand cause’ it’s my favorite!
Step 3: Add your favorite kind of lettuce!
Step 4: Add a few slices of tomato cut to the thickness that you enjoy! (Notice how these tomatoes are mostly tomato “meat” with far fewer gaps and seeds?)
Step 5: Add the best part- THE BACON!!!
Step 5: Add the Avocado slices!
Step 6: Put your bread on top, throw your favorite chips or fruit on the side and you’re ready for lunch!
