The Ultimate BLT Sandwich
Ultimate BLT Sandwich Recipe
Here we have the ultimate BLT sandwich and I truly think that once you taste it you'll agree that its the ultimate BLT sandwich. One of the key things to a really great BLT sandwich is that you need the best tomatoes you can find to make this great sandwich.
To find the best tomatoes for your BLT I suggest you go to a farmers market or a local farmers vegetable stand to purchase your tomatoes. If you grow tomatoes that's just perfect. A home grown tomato is so much better than those bought in a supermarket.
The other thing you really need to pay attention to is your bacon. You want lean bacon to make the best BLT sandwich and for your sandwich you'll want crisp bacon that's going to go crunch when you bite it. So be sure to buy lean bacon. A lean name brand bacon is probably your best bet.
And as any good cook or chef will tell you the freshest and best ingredients will produce the best and tastiest food. If your trying to create the ultimate BLT sandwich I bet your making that sandwich for the delicious flavors you enjoy and I would only use the freshest and best ingredients to make my ultimate BLT sandwich.
Though not available in all of the United States Dukes Mayonnaise is truly the very best mayonnaise you can use on an ultimate BLT sandwich. If you can't get Dukes go with Hellman's. And now comes one of my secrets. I make my own fresh basil mayonnaise from a combination of a cup of Dukes Mayonnaise and 1/4 cup of fresh cut basil. I like the purple variety but you can go with your favorite. I put the mayonnaise and basil in the food processor and blend it well. It will give your ultimate BLT sandwich a flavor you will not soon forget.
To toast or not to toast is the next important question you will have to face. Some people just have to have their bread toasted while others want the bread not toasted. And the type of bread is really important to some people but I myself prefer a good white bread. And I like my bread toasted.
When you put your ultimate BLT together have your bacon already fried to a crisp golden brown and waiting for you. Pick out the best tomato you can find and slice it up so your ready to put your sandwich together. And you'll want crisp fresh lettuce to go on your sandwich also. You should also have your basil mayonnaise ready to go on your sandwich.
And I truly think that when you get this ultimate BLT sandwich put together that you and everyone who tastes it will agree that it is the best BLT they have ever had. Go light on the salt and pepper and I really just put the salt and pepper out on the table and let people add their own salt and pepper. And if you've not yet switched to sea salt I suggest you give it a try to consider a change to sea salt. Sea salt is much better for you as it contains minerals that are not in the regular old table salt.
