15 BLT Recipe Ideas

Re-imagine the Classic Favorite with These Tasty Twists

I have to admit, a good bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich is one of my all-time favorites. There is just something sublime about the melding of those savory and fresh ingredients. It is an easy sandwich that everyone knows how to make…or do they?

We have had a big laugh a couple of times within the last six weeks or so while dining at two different restaurants. I ordered the BLT sandwich, and both times my sandwich was served without tomato. What’s that? Bacon, lettuce, and TOAST??? Both waitresses were as shocked as we were, and the laughter just rolled.

Needless to say, BLTs have been on my radar, so I thought it would be fun to do a round-up of bacon, lettuce, and tomato inspired recipes. I’ve scoured the web and pulled together some amazing BLT recipe ideas that will make your mouth water. Plus, these varied twists on the classic can be served for breakfast, brunch, lunch, appetizers, dinner, you name it — they are delicious anytime, anywhere. And, take note, they all include tomato! LOL Enjoy the celebration…

  1. My husband is a bacon lover and he would go crazy over all of these recipes. That’s a funny story about the tomato being left off of your BLT – twice! My favorite BLT’s have always been with fresh tomatoes from my mom’s garden. There’s nothing like a fresh tomato when making a BLT. Now I’m hungry after seeing all this great food.
