The Unoriginal BLT

June 30, 2010 at 11:38 pm (cooking) (, , , , )

Raid night tonight, so dinner was late.

I’d gotten Mom a giant tomato from the farmer’s market in downtown San Francisco yesterday, and, thinking I could try my hand at making her a blt, also picked up some bacon from the grocery store.

So! Mom’s BLT :)

2 slices of ripe tomato (this one had red flesh throughout)
4 slices of bacon from the butcher case
some fresh ground pepper for the tomato
miracle whip (or mayo. your choice)
3 slices of wheat bread, lightly toasted

As you are cooking up the bacon to your desired done-ness, lightly toast the bread, slice the tomato, and peel off some lettuce leaves (wash them and pat them dry!).

Lightly spread miracle whip on the bread on the inner sides – which means the middle piece will have mayo on both sides.

Pat the bacon once it’s done, and place 2 slices down, a slice of tomato, some lettuce, middle bread, 2 slices of bacon, a slice of tomato, lettuce, and the last piece of bread.

I sliced it in half corner-to-corner, starting in the middle so that the inner goodness wouldn’t slide out.

Then I pinioned it with toothpicks, plated, and served to Mom!

She says it’s delicious!!!!
