Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato

As American as apple pie, the BLT has to be one of the old sandwich standbys. This is a sandwich you can get very creative with. Again, I prefer the honey wheatberry bread for this sandwich, but any type of sliced bread will do.
  • 1 lb. thick sliced bacon, fried crisp
  • 8 slices bread
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 4 to 5 leaves of lettuce, washed and dried
  • Mayonnaise to taste

First, fry and drain bacon. Apply mayonnaise to bread and fill with bacon, lettuce and tomato. Slice sandwiches diagonally after assembly and serve with pickles and olives.

Variations: Add some sliced avocado to each sandwich. You may also add alfalfa sprouts for a nutritional boost. Consider using Canadian bacon for this sandwich rather than regular sliced bacon. To make a club sandwich, add an extra layer of bread (for a triple decker) and fill the extra layer with sliced turkey and ham.
