How to Make the Perfect BLT
This version of the classic BLT is truly something special!
It's not hard to make the classic bacon, lettuce, tomato sandwich, but we're bringing you a foolproof method in our video for How to Make the Perfect BLT. With this crispy, weaved layer of bacon, you'll have a delectable sandwich every time! Start with gathering all the components: crisp iceberg or romaine lettuce, uncooked bacon strips, a couple slices of tomato and, of course, two slices of toasty bread. This recipe calls for the addition of avocado for an extra hearty and delicious sandwich. Season with salt and pepper to your liking and serve up this classic meal for lunch whenever the craving strikes you.
- 3 slices uncooked bacon
- 2 pieces lettuce (iceberg or romaine)
- 1 slice tomato
- 3 avocado slices
- 2 pieces of bread, toasted
- mayonnaise for spreading
- salt and pepper, to taste
Start by cutting your 3 strips of uncooked bacon in half.
Next, weave them together in a criss-cross pattern and place them on a baking pan covered in tin foil.
Bake at 375 degrees F, until crispy.
Assemble the sandwich. Start with a slice of toasted bread layered with mayo, salt and pepper, avocado, bacon, tomato, more salt and pepper, lettuce, and the final piece of toasted bread.
Cut in half or leave whole to serve.

So this is one of my go-to sandwich recipes to make. I prefer carrying them to work with me because i can warm the bacon and just pack everything in separate ziplock bags( a lot of work). I still cook my bacon on a pan but now i learned the oven method ill give it a try.

Surprisingly making bacon in the oven isn't messy at all...I actually thought the same thing Sharell. I just put it on parchment paper and although it isn't really necessary, I also put parchment over top of it as well. I'm not sure how I feel about cheese on a BLT Edmund, but I may be brave and give it a try. If you haven't already tried the avocado, you should...it really is delicious!

The weaving of the bacon strips was completely new to me, though I was familiar with using the oven to cook bacon. I'm also intrigued by the use of avocado. I wouldn't have thought of using that on a BLT. I would probably add a slice of cheese instead of the avocado just because it's a usual addition to my way of making a BLT.

I love BLT sandwiches. It is always messy to make with all the grease from the bacon. How do you keep it from not splattering in the oven? To me the oven is more of a chore to clean than the stove top. I will have to give this a try. It sounds so delicious.

I've just recently started making my bacon in the oven...it's a fool proof way to keep it flat. I love the weave method and definitely have to do it this way from now on. Bacon has never really been a big favorite of mine, but when it comes to BLT's there's nothing like it. Avocado is a nice addition too...I usually whip mine up together with a squeeze of lemon and use it as my mayo. It's so good!
