A good BLT (Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato) is truly one of my favourite meals. It is probably a bit extravagant to even say this is a recipe, as it is basically putting together a roll, but as I have included a couple of time saver entertaining tips, I thought I would post it!
Easy BLT Recipe
- 12 slices short cut rindless bacon
- 1 – 2 tomatoes
- 12 Gourmet dinner rolls (our local bakery makes the best!)
I served these BLT rolls at my preschooler’s fourth birthday to feed the adults who stayed. When I was planning what to make for the adults, I wanted something tasty but with a very low effort factor. These BLT rolls fitted the bill as I could do much of the work the night before.
- Fry the bacon in a small amount of oil.
- Once cooked to your desired level of crispiness, drain on paper towel and then set aside. If like me you are going to prepare the ingredients the night before, place the bacon in an air tight container in the fridge.
- Slice the tomato thinly. Again if you are preparing this in advance, place in an air tight container in the fridge.
- With the lettuce, I prefer large chunks to shredding, so I tear the lettuce into large chunks. As I wanted these for the next morning, I also placed the lettuce in an air tight container.
- When you want to prepare the rolls, it is as simple as spreading a small amount of butter and mayonnaise on each side of the bread roll, then placing the bacon, tomato and lettuce onto the roll.
- Then serve! Alternatively you can make them up to this point, then cover them with plastic wrap and keep them in the fridge until you are ready to serve.
