What can augment this singular masterpiece? The perfect slices of bread. In this case, I used a gruyere and chive bread that I brought back from Con Pane this past weekend. The result was... uuuunh.
Boyfriend says it rivals his grandfather's BLT.
It's a great, quick weekday dinner.
The Perfect BLT
- 4 slices thick cut crusty bread, very lightly toasted
- 6 slices hickory smoked, thick cut bacon
- 2 large handfuls fresh spinach
- 2 Roma tomatoes
- 2 Tbsp mayo
Spread 1 Tbsp mayo on 2 slices of bread. Pile on a handful of fresh spinach (no WAY will you use frozen spinach in this!) on top of the mayo so it sticks. Slice the roma tomatoes thickly, and spread slices on top of the spinach. Layer on 3 strips of bacon on each sandwich, and slice in half.
I barely got a photo in before boyfriend DEVOURED it.
