    One hasn't had mayonnaise until one has had Duke's.


    Better yet... Duke's Famous Sauce. All hail matilda!

      Last fall---as the tomato crop was waning--i was craving one more BLT--but the tomatoes just were not ripening---so i made some with fried green tomatoes!! GOOD IDEA!!! Toasted rye bread-Hellman's--crisp lettuce and a wonderful thick sliced local maple bacon,my wife declared it the best she had ever had!

        My perfect BLT would be a combination of WI and NOLA - thick strips of Nueske's pepper bacon (WI), not too crisp, Cajun Creole tomatoes (NOLA), Blue Plate mayo (NOLA), and a bit of lettuce. The bread can be either cheapie Bunny Bread (toasted) (NOLA) or a soft, sliced Bruegger's bagel (WI).

          Blue Plate mayo from NOLA.

            I don't think anyone suggested this yet, anyone in the Springfield, VA area who wants a killer BLT, I had one the first weekend of March at my fave deli, Bozelli Bros Deli. I have not had a bad sandwich in 9 yrs from this place, but my parents got me half a blt sub while I was at work, and it was heaven! They always use high quality meats and breads, but the combo of the fresh bread, the high quality bacon, the very ripe tomato, shredded lettuce and hot pepper relish threw it over the top of the basic blt.

                John A - I start the pulling process with 5 slices from the package for the sandwich and add three more, which I eat as soon as they cool off on the paper towels. Then I add one more each for Redford and Lucy...They are very involved in the cooking process even though they cannot reach up to help. Something about the smell of bacon that drives the dogs wild.

                So, by time that package is portioned out, there's like 4 raw strips left. My wife, who does not eat swine, just shakes her head. I LOVE BACON!

                  LOL, yes, dogs are the best helpers ever. I throw the whole thing in the pan, my wife loves bacon as well. Besides, I need the grease for other things.

                        I had a couple today. I think it is the all American sandwich. The pound of bacon for two sandwiches sounds good for real, but the wife would get PO'd with me not leaving her any. And the bulldog wants her cut too. LOL

                            They help with cleanup. Most of my friends have a hearty laugh when I call the dog, "Jesse, help Daddy!" That usually involves me "accidentally" dropping something on the floor, or not quite being able to finish a plate full of stuff, or prewashing a plate or bowl or cool frying pan.

                            The only thing bacon DOESN'T make better is the dog!

                                I prefer a Christmas BLT (No l).  White bread, thick sliced bacon (not totally crisp), fresh peeled thick sliced tomatoes, Blue Plate mayo

                                    I love the pics sent in...mouthwatering. THe only contribution I have are 2 things: try using Ozark peppered bacon which is like putting steak au poivre on the bread and use Lawrys seasoned salt liberally. And I agree that the best BLTs are those made at home.   bkk

                                        The is the B2LT at the Wild Onion Cafe in Grand Marais, MN. In addition to the bacon they add a slice of Kobe beef.



                                        Then there is Minneapolis' Hell's Kitchen BLT with breaded walleye.

                                              I made a BLT today everything was standard and I had some pitted Kalamata Olives on the side so I put some on the sandwich. I will be doing this from now on you might want to try it...Russ

                                                  Man, I love a great BLT.. I haven't had a good one let alone a great one at any restaurant. Living in Alaska, I have very few options as far as where to go out to eat. So...  I have to satisfy my craving at home.

                                                  I use toasted Jewish rye bread, three slices, 1/2 pound of chewy, NOT crispy, peppered bacon, the freshest RIPE tomatoes I can find, romaine lettuce (for the crunch), and Hellman's Mayo.

                                                  I always used to get the club at the Woolworths lunch counter, which I consider to be just a deluxe BLT.  Back when Woolworths had a lunch counter, and there was a Woolworths.

                                                  Always toasted up nice, and the ladies would put plenty of bacon on there.

                                                  The simple blend of flavors and textures, so good.

                                                    Its not traditional, but I've recently realized that I can combine two of my favorite things.  I've been eating BEC on a hard roll for lunch a lot lately.  One day I decided to ask for it with Lettuce Tomato and Mayo.... I did get some weird looks, but its fantastic.  It gives a bright fresh flavor to the breakfast sandwich.  And it gives a more full, savory flavor to the BLT.

                                                    I also really enjoy BLATs.  Bacon Lettuce Avocado and Tomato.

                                                      I am picky about my BLT.  I like the bread very lightly toasted.  Then smash it down with your hand before eating.
