Avocado BLT’s with Spicy Mayo and Fried Eggs.
So. Just how offended will you be if I tell you how to make a sandwich?
It’s not that I’m assuming that you don’t know HOW to make a sandwich. I’m sure you do. But sometimes… you just forget how to make a killer sandwich. And when I say you, I mean us. Collectively as a group. One big group of invisible internet friends.
There are so many delicious meals out there that sometimes I don’t even think of my favorite simple combinations. And they are my favorite for a reason – because they are so freaking good. But noooo… I have to try and be all foodie-esque and make things complicated and occasionally disgusting all in the name of flavor.
That is why I had to share my sandwich. I really wasn’t even going to tell you about this at all, but then I started taking pictures of my lunch on Monday and it all went downhill from there. It’s not like it’s just any old BLT. And it’s not like it’s just any old BLAT, or whatever it is that you folks call that with an avocado. It has avocado AND an egg AND spicy mayo.
So many things!
And here is my key to a good sandwich: season every layer. EVERY LAYER. Well, okay in this case, don’t season the bacon. But everything else? Season the heck out of it. Just a tiny little sprinkle. Use your hands. You can control it that way. Salt shakers are the devil. Also, using your hands is more fun. You will forever find salt in all crevices of your house. It’s true.
My bacon looks creepy and flat because I baked it. I gotta be honest: I am not a huge fan of baking the bacon. I would take a big skillet and flying grease and tiny burns all over my arms any day if it gives me crispy bacon. Whenever I bake it on the wire rack, it just flattens out and gets all… blah. Sure, it’s less messy, but also? It takes forever. Really, for-ev-er. Say it like you’re in The Sandlot. That’s how long it takes.
I much prefer my bacon to fry in it’s own grease and then it gets all wrinkly and crinkly and looks like it has ridges and if I’m being frank, it sort of just melts in your mouth. You know, the only way that bacon can melt in your mouth.
Another thing I’m kinda weirdly particular on when it comes to my sandwiches is the lettuce. Sure, I’d technically prefer no lettuce at all (you know me so well), but then what would we have? Not a BLT… a BT? That’s weird. So I make it manageable by using loose lettuce greens, like the baby romaine above. I can’t stand when you bite into a sandwich and the singular, large leaf of lettuce comes flying out of the sandwich. I mean, come on. You know there is no way I am stuffing that greenery back inside.
This helps that wildly important world issue.
Also: must have seedy, grainy, crusty bread. Crusty in a good way, of course.
Now that I’ve shown you about eight pictures of one sandwich and talked incessantly about it… can you give me some more sandwich ideas? I’m sort of in a sandwich mood. Oh, but one caveat. Does that even make sense? I don’t really love deli meat.
So if you could give me some additional high-maintenance sandwich ideas like this one, I’ll love you forever.
