It’s just NOT summertime until we’ve made up a BLT ( Bacon Lettuce Tomato ) Sandwich. In this post, I share some important notes on creating the best BLT ever in Tomato Sandwich 101.
The Best EVER BLT Recipe
This may just be the EASIEST recipe ever! I started making these when I was a kiddo just barely old enough to use a knife. Nothing like grabbing a fresh hearty tomato out of the garden and slicing it up for a BLT. Back in the day, I would toast up cheap white bread, spread some mayo on it and sloop that juicy tomato in the middle for a yummy snack. Today, we get fancy and use whole wheat bread toasted, herb blend mayonnaise, and select organic veggies. Either way, the tomato sandwich has got to be the easiest recipe every recorded.
The Tomato in the image above is the first large fruit I don’t mind eating right off the vine. Read more about the tomatoes I grow on my website.
Images From The Kitchen
Collection of Images to show you the process of making this amazing sandwich. I highly recommend using precooked bacon. I get mine from Costco. The reason I love that bacon is that I’ve waited long enough for my tomato I don’t want to waste any time getting it on my dinner plate!
hmmm… I am thinking about adding bacon to my Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe.
I HIGHLY recommend a toaster oven like this KitchenAid featured below. It makes the BLT making process go so quickly being able to toast up so many pieces of bread. I have also used my Oven Air Fryer to toast up 2 or more sandwiches at once.
Let’s Put The Sandwich Together!
One of my favorite tomatoes to use in a BLT sandwich is the Beefsteak type tomatoes. These tomatoes are large-fruited types, producing a tomato slice that easily covers the BLT sandwich.
These are usually late to ripen, so plant some standard-sized or early tomatoes if you crave a BLT early in the season. I shared more about the Beefsteak in this video featuring my raised bed garden. You can find out more about the tomatoes I grow on my website.
