Bacon Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich

Bacon, Lettuce & Tomato Sandwich Bacon Pro's Making Life Easier Tagline

Bacon, Lettuce & Tomato Sandwich: There's nothing quite like the great tasting American classic BLT sandwich. To many, it brings back warm memories of childhood afternoons with family like no other food. It's simple to prepare with just a few ingredients, but it satisfies as if it took hours. When you think about it, the BLT has a delicious mix of flavors, texture and freshness. It is hard to match.

A Bacon Pro bacon cooker will help you reduce the time it takes to cook enough bacon to produce the perfect BLTs. It also saves clean-up time, so you can serve this great American classic without all of the work.

6 Servings

Ingredients:

1 lb of bacon (approx. 20 slices)

12 slices of white bread

12 leaves of iceberg lettuce

12 slices of vine ripened tomatoes (field grown when in season)

12 tablespoons Hellmann's mayonnaise

2 tablespoons of coarse-ground black pepper

Directions:

Cook bacon on the Bacon Pro bacon cooker until crisp

Lightly toast 12 slices of bread

Spread approximately 1 tablespoon of mayo on each slice of toast

Add 1 leaf of lettuce on top of the mayo-spreaded toast

Add 2 slices of tomato on top of the lettuce and add some coarse-ground pepper

Arrange 3 slices of bacon (doubled over just like it comes off the Bacon Pro) on the bottom slice of each sandwich

Add 1 leaf of lettuce on top of the bacon

Top-off with another mayo'd slice of toast

The bacon comes off the bacon cooker doubled over. For BLTs, leave it doubled over. That way you'll have a double layer of bacon. Three or four slices of bacon is all you'll need for a great tasting sandwich. Some forgo the 2nd leaf of lettuce and the toasting of the bread. The texture and flavor of the bacon seems to shine through more when the bread is not toasted. Enjoy with everyone and as always, bacon all around. . .
