The BLT. Eat Them While It’s Hot.

23 Sep

So, BLT’s are probably my favorite sandwich of all time. The beauty of a BLT is that they are delicious when made with the finest of ingredients, and also usually  really damn good at your local dive bar.If I don’t know what to order, its always a safe bet.

This is my favorite combo for a homemade BLT, and since the days of beautiful, meaty tomatoes are about to become days of the past (for 8 months or so at least here in the NW), make them while they have the potential to be the best, as nothing on these sandwiches beats a perfect tomato.


  • Good toasted sourdough bread. I find toasting in a pan leads to a more edible, soft toasted sandwich.
  • A ripe tomato
  • A few basil leaves
  • Your favorite bacon, (mine is the non-peppered bacon they sell at the butcher shop at New Seasons if you are from Portland. They only have 2 kinds so you can just ask for the sweeter of the two).
  • Lemon juice
  • Homemade aioli
  • Reduced Balsamic
  • Whole grain mustard
  • A good avocado, if you have one on hand
  • Salt & Pepper


  • Assemble in whatever order you please, drizzling lemon juice, and reduced balsamic over your food before topping with the second piece of bread.
  • Plate and serve with a salad or sweet potato fries and enjoy!
