The Ultimate BLT


My husband LOVES LOVES LOVES BLT's. He could eat them everyday for lunch and not get tired of them. What am I saying, I really think he would eat them for every meal and not get tired of them.


So when he mentioned to me that we hadn't had them in a while I knew I was failing as a wife. You gotta give your husband what he wants! I make brown sugar bacon, mash the avocado because I hate it when there are slices of avocado on a sandwich and they slide out. I've tried to amp up a normal BLT and created what I think is the ultimate BLT.

You decide.

The Ultimate BLT
this makes 2 sandwiches

8 slices of center cut bacon
light brown sugar
freshly ground black pepper
2 avocados
1 tablespoon light mayo
2 butter lettuce leaves
4 slices of tomato
4 slices grainy whole wheat bread toasted

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Using a broiler pan or a sheet pan with a cooling rack on top (you want something that can drain the bacon as it cooks) place the bacon on the pan. Sprinkle brown sugar over each slice of bacon. Then sprinkle with the black pepper. This friends is brown sugar bacon and it is out of this world. Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until crispy. Watch it closely and check it often to make sure it doesn't burn.

Mash the avocado and then mix with the mayo. You can omit the mayo but it makes it really creamy. Spread on each slice of the toasted bread.

Each sandwich gets 2 slices of tomato and a piece of lettuce. Top with the bacon and then put your sandwich together and eat!


  1. yuuuuuum! I love BLTs, too. Can't wait to try this.

    And btw...this morning I realized we had 3 huge overripe bananas, so a loaf of your banana bread is in the oven as I type this. :)

  2. Ohhh yeah I could totally go for one of those right now!
