Quick N' Dirty BLT

I figure I should lead with this pic, just so we all know what exactly is going into our bodies...
If it didn't taste so good, we might not eat it.
Salted & Fried Pork Belly!

(If you would like this picture in a higher resolution, or bigger, so you can use it as your desktop background... just drop me an e-mail. I'd be happy to provide it.)

Otherwise known as Bacon.

Since I make what I like, this is where I start to break from tradition. Usually you'd get a BLT on white bread... probably toasted. But not here! I like dark breads, whole grain breads, etc.

The iceberg lettuce could be considered traditional, even though Romaine is usually what I think of.
(Personally, I would've used fresh spinach if I had it.)

There's nothing else in the world quite like the taste of fresh tomato running smack into some fresh cracked pepper. So I top my tomato with a pinch of salt and fresh cracked black pepper.

The final two steps:
Pick this up.
Put it in you.


  1. Looks awesome except for the Tomato. You should come over and make me one minus the t. We even have spinach. :)

  2. What, no home-made mayo? In fact, the mayo wasn't even mentioned. How about some nice aioli?! I think that BLTs are the only thing I miss as a veg-head...

  3. Hmm. A good Aioli I'd probably eat as a dip, and I didn't mention the mayo because quite often I'll put mustard on my sandwiches too, but then it's probably not a BLT anymore... it would be more of a BLT Blasphemy.
