How to Make a Terrific Classic BLT Sandwich


  • 2 slices of your favorite sandwich bread lightly toasted and cooled (I used honey wheat bread)
  • Mayonnaise I used Hellman's light
  • Ripe garden tomatoes thickly sliced
  • Fresh lettuce leaves washed and dried
  • 2-3 slices crisp bacon
  • salt and pepper


  • Spread both slices of lightly toasted sandwich bread with mayonnaise on one side only.
  • Add several leaves of lettuce on one piece of bread.
  • Add several slices of thickly sliced garden tomato on top.
  • Generously salt and pepper.
  • Layer on 2-3 slices of crisp bacon over the tomatoes.
  • Top with second slice of lightly toasted sandwich bread.
  • Gently slice in half with serrated bread knife, being careful not to smush your sandwich.
  • Serve immediately with a dill pickle! :)
