There are some things in life you never change. I mean why change perfection, right? I often wonder who created this incredible classic sandwich and how did that person know how the layers of delicious goodness would be so incredible. There are only 5 ingredients and those ingredients are so important.
LETTUCE: Cold and crispy Iceberg is a must. Whole leaves not shredded.
TOMATOES It goes without saying that you must add tomatoes to have a true BLT, but there is nothing better than a big cold beef steak tomato!
BREAD Almost any bread is perfect for BLT’s but I prefer plain white bread toasted to a light golden brown!
Mayo: Only Dukes or Hellman’s Real Mayo will do!
The Classic BLT
4 slices bread of your choice
8 slices cooked bacon
1 large ripe tomato
Iceberg lettuce leaves
Hellmans or Dukes mayonnaise
Wash and dry lettuce.
Slice tomatoes into medium thick slices
Cook bacon until crisp, drain on paper towel and set aside.
Toast bread until lightly browned
Spread each slice of bread with mayonnaise.
Top with bacon, tomatoes and lettuce.
Season with salt and pepper to taste. Slice in half. Enjoy!
