BLT

history/inventsion of name

Recipes are not invented, they evolve. In the case of the Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich (BLT), culinary evidence confirms this recipe descended from late Victorian-era tea sandwiches. The earliest recipes for BLTs were listed under different names in cookbooks.

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cook bacon until crispy, then drain on paper towels.
  2. Toast the 8 slices of bread.
  3. Spread 1 tablespoon mayo on each slice of toasted bread. (More or less, to taste).
  4. Add 1 slice of lettuce to 4 pieces of mayo-spreaded toast.
  5. Add 2 slices of tomato on top of lettuce.
  6. Arrange 3 slices of bacon evenly on top of tomato. (Break bacon slices in half to fit, if needed.).
  7. Add 1 slice of lettuce on top of bacon.
  8. Put the remaining 4 pieces of mayo-spreaded toast on top to finish the sandwiches.
  9. Enjoy!
  10. NOTE: I also like to butter the toast slices before adding the mayo -- higher in fat, but tastier, in my opinion!

Made this for dinner using Chef #67103 's Barefoot Contessa's Oven Roasted Bacon and of course, this classic sandwich is DELICIOUS! Next time I think I'll try the suggestion of mustard on one slice of the bread! Stacky.... you will ge greatly missed!!!

It does not get any better than a BLT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I used Barefoot Contessa's Oven Roasted Bacon recipe and it was totally easy to put this together with no mess!!! I definitely love that you listed Hellmann's mayonnaise as the mayo to use because if you're gonna do it with bacon, do it right and don't use nasty Miracle Whip or some other thing besides real mayonnaise!!! Thanks, Stacky!!
