There are a few perfect food combinations and bacon, lettuce and tomato is one of them. Here is Maggie with her take on it…
I found this recipe on RecipeLion.com. I was looking for something quick to take to a party, and this one sounded good. Come on. Has BLT ever sounded bad? Just 5 ingredients!
The hardest part is cooking the bacon. I suppose you could cut some prep time further if you used pre-cooked bacon. In fact, it might be better as I find this is less greasy than frying it up raw. Hmm. I will do that next time!
This was easy to whip up. So, I got to the party late, and everyone had already eaten, so most of it came home with me. However, this made Husband and son #1 very, very happy. I apologize for the bad photos- I already told you I was late, right? Whew!
It is just like eating wee BLT fingertip sandwich! Once those summer tomatoes come in, get busy!!
What you need:
