Boy, (AKA The Boston Globe) really loves the bacon. We’ve seen a couple great bacony articles come from that site lately and hope they continue the trend.

This time they give us a set of great alternatives to the basic bacon, lettuce, and tomato (BLT) sandwich. Author Adam Ried, suggests the first step in any great BLT is high-quality bacon and he recommends Niman Ranch bacon, available at Trader Joe’s. Mr. Ried also states that “mayonnaise is the key condiment for flavor, sensation, and structure.”

Ried takes us through 5 great BLT recipes:

  • Basic BLTs
  • BLTs with Avocado, Radish Chips, and Lemon Mayo
  • BLTs with Crab and Scallion-Lime Mayo
  • BLTs with Smoked Trout and Caper Mayo
  • BLTs with Grilled Mushrooms and Onions and Chipotle Mayo

Sounds like we’ve got this week’s lunch all ready planned. Time to get busy and make these tasty BLTs!

    Sounds like a winning combination Photo-John. Next time you make one take us a picture and we’ll feature it on Bacon Today!

    My BLTs almost always include avocado! Garlic pepper and Tabasco are my other secret ingredients.

  • BL-T says:

    Tomatoes kill!

    Please keep this disgusting vegetable out of what these otherwise scrumptious sandwiches.
