Want to know what the key is to a perfect BLT in my opinion?
There are lots of factors that can add to this pretty much perfect combination of sandwich ingredients. Good bread, a good grainy mustard, super fresh tomatoes or the addition of avocado all make this sandwich yummy.
But the thing that makes a BLT extra special is this:
Seriously, this extra thick peppered bacon from Petit Jean Meats is one of the best ways I know to make a BLT pop with flavor. It’s also pretty amazing all by itself!
I am super excited to be giving away a Petit Jean Bacon Sampler just in time for Father’s Day!
This sampler has all three different kinds of Petit Jean Bacon and it comes straight to your doorstep in a cooler! I kind of think it’s a perfect dad gift, because…well, they can eat it.
If your dad is like mine, he already has closets full of junk. I mean, I guess I could get him some new socks, since his are kind of shabby. But let’s be honest, he would much rather have bacon.
To enter to win the Petit Jean Meats Bacon Sampler, just leave a comment on this post. Tell me your favorite way to eat bacon. Or your favorite thing to eat with your dad? Or your favorite way to eat bacon WITH your dad?
Here’s the recipe for BLTs, even though you don’t really need a recipe!
Perfect BLTs for Six
A loaf of your favorite bread
2 large tomatoes
whole grain mustard and mayo (optional)
a head of green leaf lettuce
Fry the bacon. Slice the tomatoes and avocados. Wash and tear the lettuce into large pieces. Set everything on the table and call everyone to the table to make their Perfect BLTs!
