I love bacon.
I love cooking with bacon but not as much as I love to eat it!
My love for bacon started when I was a kid. It was the one thing my parents knew I would eat. That, and a jar of pickles.
I guess some things never change.
So, my favorite sandwich is of course a Bacon Sandwich.
My version of a BLT is Bacon, Lettuce and Toast:
No tomato or mayo. All you need is good bread and real butter.
I repeat, Real Butter.
I did make a BLT with sun dried tomatoes once:
It was just ok.
Bacon and Jam is superb!
John made fun of me the first time he saw me make one. He thought it was the craziest thing he’d ever seen and was certain that I was the only one in the whole world who would enjoy such a crazy concoction.
Not long after that, we had breakfast with his parents. You should have seen the look on John’s face when his mom put bacon in between her toast with jam and made a Bacon and Jam Sandwich.
Have you ever tried a Grilled Bacon and Peanut Butter? My good friend, Martha introduced me to Grilled PB&B:
You should just trust me and make one. Martha knows what she is talking about.
She also shares my love for Grilled Cheese and Bacon.
Our favorite places to meet for breakfast are restaurants that serve lunch all day. We like to order a Grilled Cheese and Bacon sandwich with a side order of greasy onion rings. Yes, for breakfast.
One thing is for sure, we are reminded of that breakfast and each other all day long.
The bacon sandwich of ALL bacon sandwiches is Bacon and Basil:
Oh. My. Goodness.
Nothing comes close.
Salty bacon and sweet basil… Scrumptious!
I suppose you can go ahead and have yours with tomato and mayonnaise, but I can’t be convinced that it is any good.
Me? Stubborn? Nah…
What are your Bacon Sandwich ideas? I’d love to try them!
