I forgot the ‘L.’

How one forgets the ‘L’ in a BLT is beyond me. But trust me, when you hate veggies, it’s easy.

Actually, the lettuce was still sitting on my counter when I starting scarfing this sandwich. I promise that I had good intentions. I really meant to throw it on the sandwich. But then the beautiful bacon and cheddar caught my eye. I couldn’t help myself.

Blurry picture? Perhaps.

Again, I didn’t care. I just needed to get this into my stomach. It was divine.

On the ‘L’-less BLT: whole wheat toast, avocado, tomato, sharp cheddar, bacon, low-fat turkey, and a smidge of mayo.

I hate mayo in all other circumstances. But combined that toast and bacon and tomatoes, it is perfect.

Scrumptious, if I do say so myself.

    Yum. I’m willing to throw out the T and the bread and go at it with a fork.

    I enjoy adding avocado to my BLT, and only partially because I get to say, “I’m having a BLAT for lunch!”

    I had myself a little caesar this afternoon- that was my afternoon delight- although it could have used some bacon infused vodka..

        There IS such a thing! http://bakonvodka.com/ By all accounts, it’s disgusting though. SO disappointing…

        Your “L-less BLT” looks scrumptious on the other hand :)

    avocado on BLTs is so good! We call them California BLTs. I also really like Turkey Cobb Sandwiches: Turkey, bacon, avocado, hard boiled egg, and tomato….insanely good…and full of fat!

    Scrumptious. Have you ever substituted ranch dressing instead of mayo?

    I always wonder why the L is even in the title. It’s clearly the LEAST important part of the BLT – and I’m a veggie lover. Lettuce sucks in comparison to bacon.

    I need this! Going to buy some bacon tomorrow to make this sandwich. And, yes, mayo is necessary in a BLT or BT in this case. Thanks for the lunch idea!

    Um, yum. Your blog is full of delicious food and recipes, almost to the point that I would categorize it as food porn.

    Thank you :-P

    Mmmmm, I love BLTs! How do you cook your bacon? Do you fry up a bunch and then use it throughout the week, or just a little at a time? Or do you buy the precooked stuff?

    Reply

    • Jessica — July 8th, 2010 @ 3:54 am

      It all depends. If it’s during the week, I usually put it on a wire rack under the broiler in the oven so I don’t have a mess to clean up. Many days I don’t have the time to babysit a frying pan full of bacon!

    A’s are an absolute must in BLTs. Or, in my case TBLTs. Tempeh bacon. ;)

    I’m thinking I could put the guacamole that is in my fridge on this and it would be divine, maybe with some Cabot Habanero Cheddar? Is it lunchtime yet? :)
