Bacon! I love bacon. Salty, crispy, and yummy. I had read awhile back about weaving your bacon to make a better BLT (bacon, lettuce, and tomato) sandwich and have kept it in the back of my head to try when I got a chance. We were picking the last of our tomatoes we grew and decided we had to have BLTs for dinner. BLTs are best with fresh homegrown tomatoes, thick sliced bread, and a creamy smear of mayonnaise.
Definitely weave the bacon if you can. I cut 1lb of bacon strips in half and used 6 half strips per sandwich. This covers the bread completely and you get that salty, crispy bacon flavor in every bite of your sandwich. To me that is the best part.
Verdict: There is something so delicious about such a simple sandwich. Use the freshest ingredients you can get and it is so good. My kids were asking us to make these again real soon before we even finished eating. That is a hit in our house.
I served these with a side of chips and cut veggies to complete the meal.
