The BBLT

by Michelle on July 20, 2008

It is just too hot here to cook much unless you wait until after 9 pm for dinner. So I prepared the bacon in the microwave and we had a favorite of ours, a Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich. Since my herbs are growing so well, I just hate to miss an opportunity to use them, so I added a layer of fresh basil leaves to the BLT and OH MY…was it good.

BBL & T (Bacon, Basil, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich)

2 slices of bread
2 full slices of fried bacon
Fresh lettuce
Fresh tomato slices
4-6 fresh whole basil leaves
Salt
Pepper
Butter
Mayonnaise

Toast the bread. Butter each piece of toast and then add some mayonnaise. Salt and pepper tomato slices. On the toast layer whole basil leaves, bacon, tomato, lettuce and then the final piece of toast.

I am entering my BBLT in the “Beat the Heat” blog event hosted by Grace of Southern Grace! Don’t you just love this theme!!!

    and Oh My does it ever look good. Three simple ingredients, throw in basil and you’ve got something special.

    Looks great and reminds me that I have a pound of bacon in the fridge. I will have to try it with basil (or pesto). I love mine with a couple slices of avocado…a BLAT!

    When you have tomato and basil together, you just can’t go wrong. No matter how you slice it!

    Hi,What a great idea, i’ll have to try it. Have you seen that purplish basil, I forget what it’s called but it’s also really good. :)

    yum, the addition of basil sounds great!

    I’ve had Avacado Sandwiches before and they’re delicious with a little bit of mustard…yummy! Ive, that purple basil is called Purple Basil….LOL!!! It has a little bit stronger taste then the more common basil but then you get that gorgeous royal purple color to play with. You can also easily steep some in vinegar and you get the most gorgeous reddish purple vinegar!!

    thanks for your entry, michelle! i agree–waiting until 9 or 10 for dinner just ain’t gonna cut it. :)it’s hard to beat a good blt, but adding basil just may do it–nicely done.

    ooh, that looks very good! good thing I don’t keep kosher :)

    Hey Olga! You can skip the bacon and just make a basil, lettuce and tomatoe and it’s just as good!
