A Better BLT

Better because the bread is homemade, the tomatoes are homegrown, and you can put as much bacon on as you want. The first ones we made were actually BCTs (Bacon-Chard-Tomato). The next two times they were BTAs... with avocado replacing the lettuce/chard. Those beautiful beefsteak tomatoes were gifted to us, and we felt that this would be the best way to highlight their fabulousness.

Pretty self-explanatory, but here's the line-up:  
  • Lightly toasted homemade sourdough bread
  • Mayonnaise 
  • Sliced avocado
  • Thick-cut applewood-smoked bacon
  • Sliced homegrown tomatoes
Prep all the separate components, draining the tomatoes and bacon a little. I like to layer the tomatoes on top so they don't make the bottom piece of bread soggy.


  1. My just so happens that I have some bakery fresh sourdough (sorry, not homemade but the next best thing), some garden fresh tomatoes, mayo, and best of all, some home grown bacon! A BLT or any other variation, and they ALL look great, is fantastic with sourdough. Now I know what I am having for dinner tomorrow night. YUM!

  2. Homegrown bacon trumps home-baked bread any day! Hoooo-weee! Now I'm missing summer already.

  3. I am missing summer big time now...
