Bomdiggity BLT

Sometimes a BLT just sounds good. A little bacon with a thick slice of red tomato…..yummy! But I like to change things up a little bit and really give it some UMPH. Thing is it only takes a few seconds and adds so much flavor, and you have all the ingredients already in your pantry.

INGREDIENTS

2 Slices Bread

3 Slices Bacon cut in half

Dark Green Lettuce

Red Onion diced

Butter

Salt

Garlic Powder

Italian Seasoning

Mayonnaise

I begin by baking the bacon in the oven at 400 degrees. Depending on how thick the bacon is how long it will take. I don’t  like it really crispy because I feel it falls apart as you eat the sandwich and makes a mess. Translation, less bacon on the BLT. lol

While the bacon is cooking I dice up the red onion, wash the lettuce and slice the tomatoes. Sprinkle a dash of salt on each slice as well as some Italian seasoning. Allowing it to sit while the bacon finishes does impact the flavor as it gives the salt a chance to work.

Dark greens have far more nutritional content than Iceburg lettuce

Butter the bread and sprinkle the garlic powder and a dash of salt on top. Sound like garlic bread? Well, it is. Layers of flavor can really impact the finished sandwich. Now to assemble the sandwich. A little mayo on each slice of bread, followed by diced onions, tomatoes, bacon and lettuce and dinner is ready. Personally I enjoy a slice of cheese on it as well but I have been informed by my youngest “That is wrong…….just wrong”

Served with a little pasta salad.

So make an easy dinner this week and try a small twist in the BLT. It is a tasty thing of beauty.
