I just love sandwiches. One of my favorites is the classic BLT. They are so easy to make but can be made poorly if you don't remember these 5 steps. 1. A good BLT needs at least 3 strips of bacon but I would prefer 4. 2. A ripe tomato is also essential. I HATE when I order one in a restaurant and the tomato is mealy or pink in color. I just gagged a little bit thinking about it. 3. Lettuce is the least important but still to make the sandwich delish, I like either iceberg or romaine. To me a BLT needs that crunch. 4. You can't be skimpy with mayo. Don't get me wrong I don't want you to go crazy but feel free to lap a good layer of mayo on. Let's face it if you are counting calories or need to lose weight this is not the sandwich for you. 5. The BREAD. I like mine on 2 slices of Italian bread (lightly toasted). Don't get me wrong I will eat it on whole wheat but something about Italian bread makes this sandwich just right. You only want to toast the bread lightly because the crunch of the bacon and lettuce becomes too much if the bread is too HARD.
