The Young Persons Survival Guide To Leaving Home
When I realised that last week was National Sandwich Week, I knew that a BLT sandwich recipe had to be the next post in my Young Persons Survival Guide To Leaving Home series. I never quite managed to get it out on time, but better late than never?
It really wouldn’t be a true survival guide without this classic sandwich recipe, would it? It’s a classic creation, don’t you think? The way the lettuce and thinly sliced tomato compliments the saltiness of the bacon perfectly? And let’s be honest, you don’t lose any flavour by omitting the tomato or maybe adding some onion. It can be adapted to everyone’s taste. Just so long as you don’t omit the bacon!
The choice of bread doesn’t alter it either. There was a time when I was a great believer that bacon belonged in white bread, but now? I’m happy with a nice seedy bread, just as long as it’s soft and coated in butter.
I know the preferred sauce is probably mayonnaise and a little ketchup, but I like pink sauce in mine. The type you would drizzle on a prawn cocktail (who says they belong in the 70s?) rather than 1000 islands one. Or maybe they are the same and it’s just mine that is different? I’ll share my recipe soon. Is there a real difference between the two, though?… I don’t add finely chopped anything to my pink sauce, so I assume it’s not 1000 islands.
The Classic BLT Sandwich
I like streaky bacon in my BLT sandwich, but that’s probably because I’ve lost the taste for back bacon. For some reason back bacon isn’t readily available in Greece.
Bacon can be dry fried.
…Or cooked in the microwave.
I like the bacon in my BLT sandwich to be chopped up, so I don’t end up tugging a whole rasher out at once.
A BLT sandwich tastes as good in a seedy bread roll…
As it does on seedy sliced bread (but if you enjoy white bread, that’s good too).
So what is your favourite sandwich?
