If you want a dinner as easy ABC make a BLT! Here’s how I made my BLT for tonight’s dinner. It probably isn’t standard, traditional way of making it but I loved it!
-Get sidetracked by some fresh tomatoes and crisp lettuce in the East Village farmer’s market. Ponder and purchase.
-Then go to East Village Cheese and get authentic Portuguese hero rolls from NJ. Make sure they’re the fresh ones!
-Wash and clean your produce when you get home. Tear the lettuce into manageable pieces and put the tomato aside for slicing later.
-Against better judgment in this heat, turn your oven on to 350F and pour a glass of something cold to drink.
-Take applewood smoked bacon from Trader Joe’s (or any ol’ bacon) out of the fridge and place several slices on a cookie sheet
-Note that you’d normally preheat the oven but wanting to minimize the craziness with using the oven in this heat, you place the bacon in now.
-Then run like heck out of the kitchen with your cold drink and check on your bacon in about 20 minutes. (Must-avoid-heat!)
-When the bacon is done to your liking (I like mine slightly chewy and a mite crisp on the edges, hence the lower and longer cooking temp and time), remove it from the oven, drain the fat and set it aside while you assemble your BLT.
-Slice your hero roll lengthwise.
-Slather it with a mix of Japanese Kewpie mayonnaise and McCormick Mayonesa con Limon. (I love international mayo!)
-Slice your tomato however you want but just don’t cut your fingers. It’ll make the sandwich taste bad.
-Assemble: lettuce first, bacon and then your tomatoes.
-Give it a squish o’ love with the palm of your hand <squish!> and go enjoy this:
Yes, that is a Shape magazine behind the BLT.
Sit down and eat this tasty sandwich. Relish in the fact that there are no pots to clean, no bowls, just a cookie sheet, cutting board, and two knives. You could plate this if you wanted to but I ate it off the cutting board. Don’t judge!
Easy as ABC!
