BLT the Old Guy Way



As you may have noticed, I haven't posted anything in a while. I am recovering from surgery, and under doctor's order not to use my left arm and shoulder. My next few posts won't be recipes, but my different approach to some of my favorite foods.

I love bacon. When I buy bacon, I go to my favorite restaurant supply store and  buy it ten to twenty pounds at a time. Did I mention I love bacon?

For several years, I have been using a weave of bacon to self baste turkeys and turkey breasts.  You don't have to lift a finger, roast the bacon covered meat until done, then carve and serve. The benefit of the weave is the bacon holds together and when you want a club sandwich, cut off a square and add it to your sandwich. Nothing falls off and you get bacon in every bite.


The weave also works great for a BLT. Cut three slices of bacon in half, weave together, and throw it in the pan. Tonight I had a bonus; I found some apple wood smoked bacon, which I cooked right alongside some thick sliced hickory bacon.




To assemble this delicious treat, start with toasted bread.

Add the lettuce.


Add the first weave of bacon.


Then, add a large slice of beefsteak tomato.

Add weave number two.

And then, top with your second slice of bread.


Enjoy your sandwich, but don't leave it alone, someone might just take a bite.
