    Bacon. Lettuce. Tomato.... The Simplicity and Beauty of the BLT.



    Toasted and slathered with cool creamy mayo.




    And bacon.



    And more bacon.



    And more bacon.

    Believe it or not, BLT has it's own month.


    April is BLT month and July 22nd is BLT Day.

    https://www.thenibble.com/blog/2017/...ry-of-the-blt/

    Interesting read that.

    "Tomatoes were brought to Europe from the New World at the end of the 16th century. But not as food. The original tomatoes were like yellow cherry tomatoes. Considered poisonous (they’re members of the Nightshade family), they were enjoyed as houseplants. Tomatoes weren’t eaten for two more centuries, and then only because of a famine in Italy in the early 1800s. They arrived in England in the 16th century (see the history of tomatoes)."

    The BLT grilled cheese does look rather tasty.



    Though struggling to see the lettuce.


    With Avocado and pink chili mayo.



    BLT Caprese Sliders With Puff Pastry Buns





    Find it hard to beat the original, to be honest.

    I'm going to have a BLT this weekend. Just with no lettuce. Or bun. And hold the tomato.

    Bacon. I'm going to eat bacon.

    Will have another tomorrow I reckon.


    Just considering.... will see what pickles Tops have.

    Perhaps might melt some cheese with diced jalapeno and pour over the bacon.....


    Decisions decisions.


    The truth of the matter is though, the basic version is very hard to beat.

    Usually get some German stuff from Tops, but for thin crispy bacon for a BLT, just use:



    from the sewen.

    I prefer a thicker bacon and not the thin stuff. Thai German from Foodland is the best in my opinion.

    Hot in California now is the BLT that uses guacamole rather than mayo. Gonna try one this weekend since we arrive Thursday morning.
