The Ultimate BLT

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!

The Ultimate BLT Recipe Ingredients


  • 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!
  • Bacon
  • Avocado
  • 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
  • Mayonnaise

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!
