The basic classic: bacon, lettuce, and tomato -- nothing fancy, just delicious. (I personally use fake vegetarian bacon these days, and it's still really good!)

I made this to go with homemade chunky tomato soup. I used Bagel Thins and thick sliced hickory smoke bacon. The kids thought this was great. Very easy supper idea. EDITED: Because I now eat low carb, I omit the bread and I like to spread a tiny amount of mayonnaise on a big piece of lettuce, then wrap the bacon and tomato inside the lettuce. Read More

A blt without a slice of onion is just a waste of appetite. Add onion and this goes to a 5 star sandwich! Read More

My husband's all time favorite not to mention mine as well! I use thick cut bacon add salt and pepper to the tomato and lightly toast the bread - it's a classic that you never grow tired of and shouldn't mess with... It's a plain simple straightforward recipe and when you want a BLT you want a BLT! Read More

This is one of my all time favorite sandwiches! Sure it may be a "classic" to some but not everyone cooks the same cuisine so THANK YOU MOTTSBELA for posting a great classic that some may assume everyone already knows how to make. I hope someone learns the joy of eating a nice bacony BLT as the result of your post! (I do prefer to bake my bacon in the oven though for nice flat strips w/less stove top mess). Read More

If your doing BL&T's for a family try doing the bacon in the oven,on parchment paper, pan with a lip, lay it out, bake for about 20 minutes. You don't have to turn it just let it get crisp. White pepperidge farm bread, toasted hell mans mayo, big tomatoes from somebody's garden, leaf lettuce and its the best. Summer is here when your eating this sammi. Supper tonight,yes!Thanks for reminding me Mottsbela! Read More

This is a great standard recipe. The key for this sandwich is the quality of the ingredients. (Home Grown Tomatoes). My favorite BLT sandwich came from a restaurant up in Carmel ca. I found out that they notched it up with a very thin layer of peanut butter on one slice of the bread and between the lettuce and tomatoes they added thinly sliced Maui onion. Since I am not a peanut butter fan I can't believe how much I love this sandwich. But I do. Read More
