There’s something so beautiful about a well made BLT. The bacon has to be crispy, the lettuce fresh, and the tomato ripe (but not too ripe!). I was craving one a while back and things just kinda got out of hand.
My 16-year-old daughter was the hand model in this shot. She HATES meat of any kind – refuses to touch it, let alone eat it. She was so sweet to help me out.
Then she started to gag a little bit because one of her fingers almost touched bacon. ← Yes, that happened.
I just don’t get it. Why do teenagers have to be so damn dramatic?? She’s in denial about the fact that at age 2 1/2 she would eat a McDonald’s cheeseburger and enjoy it.
Anyway, back to the sandwich.
I have a very special place in my heart for buffalo chicken, and the combination of it with the BLT is magical and just downright amazing. I also chose to go with Texas toast – this needed something a bit more sturdy than plain ass white bread.
It did not let me down.
