Let’s start with the basics:Good Quality BaconLettuceA Big Juicy tomato
B: The B typically stands for Bacon, and I’m one of those “Everything’s better with bacon” kinda girls, and not only think Bacon would be great but how about Prosciutto instead? But not everyone is a bacon lover.. So why not allow that B To stand for Beans? (Check out my white bean recipe on VCM) Do a great Bean Spread or hummus on your BLT. If you use beans make sure to salt them well, after all that salty flavor is half of what makes this sandwich!
L: The L usually stands for Lettuce. I’m not an ice burg lettuce lover myself, so I tend to like arugula, or Romain, etc. Let’s think about sprouts! I LOVE Sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, broccoli sprouts, and ooooooooo sunflower sprouts! Try them all!
T: Tomato! Honestly, why change it? But lets talk about the things you could do with the tomato! Roast it, Grill it, Pan fry it, Do a Fried Green tomato! Sun Dried Tomatoes!
One of the other things thats a must on this famous, timeless sandwich is Mayo! Why stop there? Why not do Roasted Garlic Mayo? Mix Mayo and Mustard together, Add Tabasco or Sriracha to your mayo for a little kick!
Lets talk about your bread! While normal white bread is ok, think outside the box! Sunflower bread, a good Ciabatta, sour dough, Italian Bread, 5 grain bread, why not make biscuits for your BLT? Whatever bread you choose, make it good, and ALWAYS Toast it!
Other Yummy things to add to your BLT: Avacodo Parmesan Thinly sliced Jalapeño Wanna get really Crazy? Add a fried egg Radishes.
