I love sandwiches, and if there is one, in particular, I enjoy most, it is the bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich. A palatable patriarch of the people, now, with gluten-free rolls and my favorite addition (cheese), this sandwich is beefed up (and cheesed up).
If you like something with a little more zip, replace the mayonnaise with Spicy Chipotle mayonnaise (or try pepper jack in place of cheddar cheese).
No matter how you slice it, this is a sandwich you can enjoy any day of the week. Serve with Broccoli cheese soup and you’ll think you’re at Bear Creek Cafe.
This recipe is induction-friendly and gluten-free.
BLT (with C)
Oopsie rolls (2 per sandwich)
2 strips of bacon (I use low-sodium)
1 slice of medium cheddar cheese
1 slice of tomato
2 Tbsp Mayonnaise
Spread both rolls with mayonnaise. From the bottom: layer cheese, tomato, lettuce and bacon. Slice in half. Add an olive with a toothpick for that final ‘sandwich shop’ look.
