Best BLT Sandwich Ever

I try to remain humble, but I genuinely mean it when I say that this BLT sandwich 🥪 recipe will render you the best BLT you have ever tasted. Now I understand you're probably thinking: "Natalie, it comprises of only three ingredients, listed in the acronym... how fantastic can it be?". My initial reaction (in all my humble wisdom) is: there is so much power and paradoxical complexity in simplicity. But i'll spare you that deep dialogue for a sandwich, albeit a damn good one. The secret is adding a finger licking good glaze to your bacon, which elevates the whole sandwich. Read on and enjoy!


Ingredients:

  • Bread (I like to use sourdough)

  • Mayonnaise

  • 16 pieces of Bacon 🥓

  • Whole tomatoes 🍅, sliced

  • 1/4 cup grade B maple syrup (Aunt Jemima works fine too)

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

  • Lettuce

*Adjust the ingredient amount accordingly to # of slices of bacon and preference. Try not to overglaze bacon slices or it will stick to pan and be hard to remove.


Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400º F.

  2. Whisk together the maple syrup, mustard, and pepper in a small bowl

  3. Lay the bacon on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, take two slices of bread and spread a little mayo (or butter) on each side. Heat skillet to medium heat.

  5. Toast bread until golden brown on each side, about 3 minutes. Slice tomatoes (not too thin) then wash separate some lettuce leaves.

  6. When bacon is done any drain excess fat and blot with a paper towel.

  7. Using a pastry brush or spoon, generously glaze the bacon with syrup.

  8. Return the bacon to the oven for another 1 to 2 minutes, to your desired crispiness.

  9. Transfer bacon to bread and combine other ingredients to form a sandwich. Enjoy! 😊
