Minnesota Cooking: BLT Sandwich - Bacon Lettuce and Tomato
Pan, medium heat, a package of bacon and a little water. That's what you need in your pan to cook bacon. The water keeps the bacon flat until it starts to cook through, then, as the water evaporates, it gets replaced by bacon grease.
I like to get a paper plate ready with a paper towel and when the bacon has some browned bits on both sides, I fish the bacon out of the pan leaving the grease behind and put the bacon on the paper towel so that some of the excess grease is absorbed.
At this point, I'm making my sandwich. I have already made my husband two sandwiches and I'm putting mine together.
First the toast. Then a generous dollop of miracle whip on both slices. Cover one with lettuce, some bacon and a slice of tomato. Put the second piece on toast on top and slice. I personally like to slice mine into four pieces.
Most people only cut theirs in half, but I like the smaller pieces.
But. One thing I noticed as I was posting these photos is that, although I put tomato on my hubby's sandwich, I completely forgot to put tomato on my own.
It was good without it. The miracle whip takes over the flavor at any rate and I didn't even miss the tomato. Most people like the tomato and I'm glad I didn't forget his on his sandwich.
