BLT Sandwich – Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwich Recipe


BLT Sandwich – A near perfect balance of sweet, smoky, crusty, and salty – the BLT Sandwich is what food dreams are made of!  

The basic BLT Sandwich is a combination of bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes.  This sandwich is a favorite of both my husband and myself – especially during the fresh vine-ripened tomato season!

BLT Sandwich Recipe:

BLT Sandwich - Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwich

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 0

Yield: 1 sandwich


Ingredients for each BLT Sandwich:

2 slices thick-sliced bacon*
2 slices high-fiber bread
1 tablespoon good-quality light mayonnaise
2 to 3 leaves lettuce
Thick-sliced tomatoes**

* How about using Candied Bacon in your BLT Sandwich?  So Good! Check out my recipe for Candied Bacon - Brown Sugar Bacon - Pig Candy.

** If it is tomato season in the area you live in, use your locally grown vine-ripened tomatoes.  So good!



In a frying pan, oven, or in your microwave, fry bacon until crisp. If frying, place the cooked bacon on paper towels to drain off any excess fat.

Oven-Baked Bacon - Perfect Baked Bacon:

Raw BaconThis is the way to get perfect crisp bacon without having to constantly turn it, watch over it, or get burnt by splatters of grease.  Cooking bacon can be a real challenge as frying bacon is a mess and microwaving has inconsistent results.  Baked bacon does not curl – you get nice straight bacon pieces every time.

This oven technique will solve all your bacon problems and is also especially great when serving a large crowd.  This is the way I now cook bacon.

Toast the bread until light golden brown.

Spread mayonnaise over 1 slice of bread; top with lettuce leaves, bacon slices, and tomato slices.  Top with remaining slice of bread.

Cut the sandwich in half and serve.  Enjoy!
