15 BLT Recipe Ideas – Re-imagine The Classic

Re-imagine the classic favorite with these 15 recipe twists on the Bacon Lettuce, and Tomato sandwich. Celebrate with BLT recipe ideas for every meal or party.

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…

BLT Bruschetta from Allyson @ Domestic Superhero

“everyone goes crazy over bacon, and this spin on traditional bruschetta is just so easy and tasty!”

 

BLT Pizza from Bev @ Bev Cooks

“And as if the crust wasn’t enough to do me in, I topped the whole dern thing with a BLT. Should we take a moment of silence?”

 

BLT Roll Ups from Kelly @ Mostly Homemade Mom

“This amazingly easy appetizer blends cream cheese, mayo, bacon, tomatoes, and lettuce in sliced wraps for a fresh take on the classic BLT!”

Rachel Hollis’ BLT Bites from Cathy @ She Paused For Thought

“This simple recipe can be customized to your personal preference. I prefer to use sourdough bread, freshly made aioli & Romaine lettuce. Turkey bacon or Veggie Bacon is also a good option if you don’t eat pork.”

 

French Toast BLTs from Jaymee @ E Is For Eat

Best Organic Sunday Dinner Recipes

Peter Minkoff brings us the Best Organic Sunday Dinner Recipes. These are simple and delicious; you’re going to love them.

Do you remember those major preparations for Sunday lunch in your family home? Few of us do something like that, but it seems that Sunday lunch is still firmly established as a time for family gathering. What about Sunday dinner, though? Then, I have to admit, that I myself am a little lazy. You know, I am waiting for this day for an entire week, hoping that I will be able to rest without doing anything other than cooking lunch.

Sunday Dinner Recipes

The Best Ideas for Simple Organic Meals

 

To make things even more difficult, I have made a firm decision to prepare healthy organic dishes for my family, so I have to consider many things when cooking. Although ordering a pepperoni pizza and watching TV would be the simplest option, I have found that there are many healthy and delicious meals which can be prepared in no time.

 

Here are some great ideas for your organic Sunday dinner.

Japanese Rice

This is such a simple meal that requires almost no time for the preparation and it is cooked in about 40 minutes. I prefer to use brown organic rice because it is very low in saturated fat and cholesterol.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 2 tbsp finely diced carrots
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 ½ tbsp butter
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • 2 tbsp soya sauce
  • Salt and pepper

Preparation:

Cook the rice for about twenty minutes. Season with salt. Leave it to cool in the refrigerator. Scramble the eggs in a pan over medium heat. After the rice is cooled, add peas, carrots, onion and scrambled eggs and mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Melt the butter in a frying pan, add a dash of salt and pepper and soya sauce. Pour the rice mixture in the pan, and cook for 6 to 7 minutes. You can serve it in rolls.

Curried Coconut and Chickpea

This is actually my favorite recipe, because I am crazy about both chickpea because it is packed with magnesium, iron, phosphate, zinc, calcium and vitamin K, and it is delicious. I cook this meal using Honest To Goodness coconut oil, because I am sure that it is as healthy and natural as it gets.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups cooked and drained chickpeas
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 minced shallot
  • 4 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp curry
  • 1 tsp red chili flakes
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 ¼ tbsp coconut oil

Preparation:

Cook the cauliflower for 3 minutes. Heat the oil in a sauté pan on medium heat and add all the ingredients but the cauliflower, chickpeas and coconut milk and cook until everything is translucent. After, add the cauliflower and cook for another 3 minutes. Then add chickpeas, stir and cook for 3 minutes more and deglaze with coconut milk.

Greek Pizza

Well, sometimes you have to have pizza, but if you do, make it a healthy one. Kids love it, and it is a good way to make them eat spinach, which is important for bone health, skin, hair, etc.

Ingredients:

  • Organic pizza dough (buy prepared or prepare by yourself)
  • 1 ½ cups yogurt
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 4 ounces feta cheese
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 2 ounces diced black olives
  • ½ cup sliced red onion
  • 1 tsp fresh peppermint leaves

Preparation:

Pre-bake the dough for about 10 minutes and set aside. Mix spinach and yogurt in a mixing bowl and spread it on a partially baked crust. Sprinkle with feta cheese, diced tomatoes, diced olives, sliced onions and peppermint leaves. Put it in the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
