Country Fried B.L.T. with Fresh Herb Aioli

Rated as 4.75 out of 5 Stars

"Bacon is considered by many (myself included) to be the ice cream of meats. Breading and frying it in oil takes it to a completely new level. I serve these on slider buns as appetizers for parties."

  1. Make the aioli by stirring the mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, basil, and dill together in a bowl. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Stir the flour, onion powder, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl. Whisk the heavy cream and beaten eggs together in a separate bowl.
  4. Dip each piece of bacon into the egg mixture and then into the flour mixture. Repeat the process a second time to assure each piece is heavily coated.
  5. Fry the bacon in the hot oil until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Set aside onto a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
  6. Spread a generous amount of the aioli onto each roll. Add a slice of tomato to each and season with salt and pepper. Finish the sandwiches with a portion of the lettuce and a few slices of bacon.

An incredibly delicious way to jazz up the typical BLT. I followed the recipe to a T and it was superb.

i love this very handy n easy there is also room for u to add any of ur favourite ingredients r just leave it the way it is superb!!!!

I had a little bit of a hard time getting the batter to fry well on the bacon...but overall a tasty sandwich!

This was just incredible! I made each sandwich by microwaving a tortilla, covered with very small sprinkling of shredded cheese, for about 30 seconds. Then I spread a fine smear of the aioli...
