BLT French Toast

Serious Eats Sydney Oland 3 comments

I love savory French toast. And when you combine salty, fried, eggy bread with bacon, tomatoes, and fresh, crunchy shredded romaine, you get a brunch that will set you straight no matter what you got yourself into the night before. More

A Sandwich a Day: Green BLT Sandwich at Honky Tonk BBQ

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 1 comment

As a BLT should, the Green BLT Sandwich ($8) at Honky Tonk BBQ has a range of contrasting flavors and textures: soft bun, salty and crisp bacon, creamy garlic mayo. The fried green tomato adds a bit of tartness, with a cornmeal batter that stays adhered in order to provide some crunch. More

Messing with Success: 12 BLT Variations We Love in Chicago

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 2 comments

Adding components to a BLT is a tough job. How do you improve something already so perfect? I decided to track down some of the restaurants truly making their mark on the BLT, either by adding an unexpected ingredient or by upping the ridiculousness. More

Dinner Tonight: Pork Belly BLT with Cherry Tomatoes

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

Let's say you want a BLT, except it's not quite peak tomato season and you only have a slab of raw pork belly, not bacon. That's the terrible dilemma I faced this week. But was that going to stop me? Of course not. I just had to get creative. More

A Sandwich a Day: 'BLP' at Van Horn in Cobble Hill

New York Carey Jones 2 comments

Slathering pimento cheese on a sandwich is such a brilliant idea. At Van Horn Sandwich Shop on Court Street in Cobble Hill, it makes an appearance on the "BLP." More

A Sandwich a Day: Swinery BLT at The Swinery in Seattle, WA

A Sandwich a Day Jay Friedman 3 comments

What makes this BLT special is what's slathered on the lightly toasted Macrina Bakery brioche bun: chicken liver paté mayonnaise. The Swinery makes its own mayo, folding in a generous amount of housemade paté at the end of the process. The spread has a rich, mineral-like, earthy (and yet sweet) flavor, combining with the pork belly in elevating the sandwich from comfort food to something more elegant, sophisticated, and delicious.

A Sandwich a Day: BLT at The Old Oak Tap

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

What is the Old Oak Tap doing serving a BLT in November? This version gets around that problem by subbing in fried green tomatoes. Coated in cornmeal, the thick slice is slightly crunchy and acidic. Along with extra crunchy strips of maplewood smoked bacon (the B ) and arugula (the L), the sandwich also adds a smear of pimento cheese. More

BLT Sandwiches with Candied Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Jam

Serious Eats María del Mar Sacasa 3 comments

BLTs are one of my top restaurant orders: toasted bread, ripe tomatoes, refreshing iceberg lettuce, a slather of mayo, and a layer of crisp, greasy bacon. It can't be messed up, but of course, it can get a few alterations. Like candied bacon and tomato jam. More

A Sandwich a Day: BLT at TasteBuds

New York Molly Goldman 1 comment

There's so much pleasure in a BLT. This simple combination of ingredients is such a good menu standby, and a useful barometer of the overall quality of a sandwich shop. The rendition (6.95) at newly-opened TasteBuds lies within sight of top-notch. More

A Sandwich a Day: Fried Green Tomato BLT at Yardbird in Miami

A Sandwich a Day Jay Friedman 2 comments

Who needs bread when you've got perfectly fried breading, like the type you'll find on the green tomato that forms the base of Yardbird Fried Green Tomato BLT? That tomato is a generous one, sliced thick, but it's not the only tomato that appears on this "sandwich." More

A Sandwich a Day: BLT at Austrian Bakery

Chicago Lindsey Becker Post a comment

There's no better classic to return to than the BLT offered at Austrian Bakery, where their double-decker ironically boasts American-sized proportions. The expected lettuce and tomato join copious amounts of mayo coating three slices of hearty white bread with crispy and chewy bacon in amounts you might be embarrassed to indulge in at home. More

A Sandwich a Day: Fried Green Tomato BLT from Loveless Cafe in Nashville

A Sandwich a Day Hawk Krall 6 comments

Loveless Cafe started out in the 1950s as a motel that sold fried chicken and biscuits from the front door to travelers who ate it on the picnic tables out front. They've gradually grown, changed ownership, and become more touristy over the years but still serve some pretty good Southern food in Nashville, and perhaps the best Fried Green Tomato BLT. More

6 Twists on the BLT

Paige Brocious 13 comments

The BLT is a classic sandwich we all know and love, but there's plenty of room between those two slices of bread to take it to another level. Or maybe it's not bread at all—ever tried a BLT on a waffle instead? How do you like your BLT? More

Cook the Book: BLT Bucatini

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 2 comments

This BLT Bucatini from Domenica Marchetti's The Glorious Pasta of Italy is another fantastically quick pasta to add to your weeknight dinner artillery. The "B" here is really more like a "P," crisp slices pancetta, the "L" is peppery arugula, and the "T," tomatoes of course, and in this case, sweetly roasted cherry tomatoes tossed with olive oil. More

A Sandwich A Day: Pierrepont at Lassen & Hennigs

New York Hannah Smith-Drelich Post a comment

The roasted turkey is freshly sliced off a very large turkey breast (the kind you'd find at a Pilgrim's Thanksgiving), and bacon is there only as a sidekick—if you gave it any more stage time it'd steal the show. More

Dinner Tonight: BLT, Animal-Style

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 4 comments

I've made Kenji's astonishing replica of In-N-Out's Double-Double, Animal-Style so many times now that I can almost make it in my sleep. The burger already has lettuce and tomato, so what would happen if I got rid of the cheese, doubled the amount of tomato, and replaced the beef with bacon? More

A Sandwich a Day: Lobster BLT from B&G Oysters in Boston

A Sandwich a Day Liz Bomze 4 comments

If you're gonna mess with two perfect concepts—lobster rolls and BLTs—this is the way to do it. Barbara Lynch's B.L.T. with Lobster ($28), a charter-menu classic at her chic South End raw bar, is one of those rare dishes that actually makes the concept of "fusion" seem appealing. Shucked lobster meat (cooked until perfect firm-tender doneness, of course) is heaped between slices of crusty ciabatta, along with crisp bacon, ripe red tomato slices, torn romaine, and a healthy slather of lemon juice-spiked Hellmann's.
