No need to stress about a time crunch when you could be crunching on a classic and stress-free BLT! Whether you’re looking for an easy on-the-go lunch option or just a quick snack, this recipe is guaranteed to be a highlight of your day!
How to Make a Classic BLT (The Easy Way!)
Aside from its unmatched flavor, the best thing about this savory sandwich is that it’s so simple to make! All you’ll need is a few slices of your favorite bread like sourdough or an everything bagel seasoned french bread, a few slices of bacon, a tomato, lettuce, mayonnaise, and salt and pepper!
Before you get to making the sandwich, go ahead and get all of your ingredients ready. Cook the bacon until it’s nice and crispy, rinse the produce, and slice up the tomato!
If you can fit your bread slices in a toaster, go ahead and toss them in until they reach the perfect level of toasted crunch. Otherwise, you can place your bread in a toaster oven or on a hot skillet over the stove for a few minutes to achieve that mouthwateringly golden shade of toast that makes this sandwich so great.
After your ingredients are prepped and your bread is toasted, you’re ready to put everything together! Spread a thick layer of mayonnaise over both slices of bread before sprinkling with salt and pepper to taste.
Then, lay out a few leaves of fresh lettuce on one slice of bread.
Place the sliced tomato on top of the lettuce and the bacon slices on the other piece of toast. If they are too long, cut the bacon slices in half.
Fold your sandwich and get ready for the best classic BLT you’ve ever had!
