The Weave – Best BLTs EVER!!

Written by Jen Sill

BLT

This is a summer standard in our home.

You can’t really have one with those winter tomatoes.  You need to wait for the juicy goodness of the summer vine.  Its the only way to eat a BLT.

But this week my brother took the treat to a whole new level.  A basket weave.  Bacon-y goodness in every bite.

 

Ingredients: 

Bacon (of course)

Tin Foil, baking sheet, cookie cooling racks

Lettuce

Tomato

Mayo

Toast

 

Directions: 

Cut your basic bacon strip in half.

Using six halves, weave a square.

Line your cookie sheet with tin foil.  Place cooling racks on top.  Place bacon weaves on top of the cooling racks.

Awesome, bacon-filled bite every time.  

Create your BLT as usual from here.

  • This looks scrumptious! What temperature did you use? Also, did you flip it? I’m worried about the weaved areas not cooking thoroughly. Thank you!
