Sorry folks. It was gone before I could get a picture of it. It's been a few years since I've had a fresh homemade one and man was it good. I think I was eating the bacon off the stack as fast as my dad could fry it up.

Nothing better.

Lightly toasted white bread. Copious amounts of bacon. Thickly sliced tomatoes. Fresh, crisp lettuce. And a very light spreading of mayo.

Couple of months from now I will be plucking fresh ripe tomatoes of the vine and eating BLT's twice a week. For me they are only consumed when I have my beautiful home grown tomatoes. Store bought tomatoes are for the uninformed, if you can't grow your own, find a farmers market. The difference is amazing.

I add cheese and onion to mine, but I add cheese and onion to just about everything I cook.

If we're talking BLTs at breakfast time, I love tossing on an ham-cheese-mushroom-scallion-siraccha omlet to the mix. Makes one hell of a messy thick sandwich with the lettuce, tomato, bacon, and mayo, but damn good!

I prefer it on lightly toasted rye with a slice or two of deli American cheese.

I like cheese but never thought about it on a BLT. Oh well. That gives me an excuse to make more.

I like my BLT without the L, and prefer rye or whole wheat, instead of white bread. Or maybe on a baguette, if I happen to find one in the kitchen

And Duke's. Don't forget the Duke's.

I keep hearing a bout those special tomatoes grown in Virginia -- Hanover? I have not had the opportunity to try one, but my Virginia friends tell me how great they are.

From “White Trash Cooking” by Ernest Matthew Mickler


KITCHEN SINK TOMATO SANDWICH

“In the peak of the tomato season, chill 1 very large or 2 medium tomatoes that have been vine-ripened and have a good acidy bite to their taste.
Take two slices of bread . Coat them with ¼ inch of good mayonnaise.
On one piece of bread, slice the tomato ¼ inch thick. Salt and pepper that layer. Add another layer of sliced tomato, and again salt and pepper. Place the other piece of bread on top of this, roll up your sleeves, and commence to eat over the kitchen sink while the juice runs down your elbows.”

Only thing better than a fresh BLT would be 2 BLTs. Big Grin

There used to be a retailer in the Chicagoland area called Venture. They made some really good BLTs. I don't miss Venture but I sure have great memories of their BLTs.

I like BLT's true to their name, nothing added except toasted bread ( wheat )and coupous amounts of mayo along with s&p. That's all it needs!!

A good BLT is in my top 3 or 4 sammiches

I like crispy-cold hearts of romaine and a 1" thick slice of beefsteak tomato.

"Butter" the bread with real mayo and toast lightly. Add quality thick bacon slices (at least 6).

Add pepper to taste, thousand island on top, more mayo on the bottom

We used to donate blood at a church in Manassas, VA that gave you a BLT afterwards as a reward. Every time they ran a collection, we were there.
