BLT Club Sandwiches
The classic bacon-lettuce-tomato sandwich is never better than during 'Tomato Season', eaten two-handed with tomato juices dripping to your elbows. Serve with potato salad, corn-on-the-cob and sweet pickle spears—and plenty of napkins.
12 strips cooked bacon
12 slices whole wheat bread
1/2 cup mayonnaise
4 lettuce leaves
2 large tomatoes, cored, each sliced into 6 slices
- For each sandwich: Spread 1 slice bread with 1/2 tablespoon mayonnaise; top with a lettuce leaf. Spread 1/2 tablespoon mayonnaise on each side of another bread slice; place on lettuce. Top with 3 slices tomato and 3 strips bacon. Spread a third slice of bread with 1/2 tablespoon mayonnaise. Invert bread on bacon and press down gently.
- Cut each sandwich in half or in quarters to serve.
Makes 4 servings.
