The classic BLT sandwich is almost perfect. What it lacks to perfection is the E. And no, I’m not talking about some flavor enhancer. I’m talking about an egg: bacon, lettuce, egg, tomato. When you come to think about it, though, the egg makes any dish better, so it basically is a flavor enhancer.
2 slices of toast (or any bread of your choice – even a hot dog bun works);
3 slices of bacon;
2 big tomato slices;
a little chopped salad leaves (Romaine is ideal because of the crunchiness, but anything works);
a little chopped onion (optional);
mayonnaise (I mixed mine with hot sauce and mustard, but again, that’s optional);
– cheese (optional)
Preheat your oven to 180 C. Bacon will cook in 20 minutes, and meanwhile, we will get the rest of the ingredients ready. I recommend lining your baking tray with a piece of parchment paper, adding the bacon, and topping with another piece of parchment. This way, your slices will be perfectly even and crispy – precisely the way you need them.
Chop and prep the rest of the ingredients. I like slicing off the bread crust, too. I’d say it’s a classic for sandwiches like BLT and Clubs.
Make a scrambled egg (that’s what’s the butter and cheese are for).
In a toaster (or together with bacon), toast your bread and layer your ingredients in a similar order (your goal is to have a layer of deliciousness followed by a layer of veg followed by a layer of deliciousness, etc.): mayonnaise, tomato, bacon, lettuce, egg.
