Our ultimate BLT makes a delicious take to work lunch or lazy Sunday morning brunch.

Perfect

Ultimate BLT ingredients

  • 2 slices of malted brown bread
  • 1 small avocado
  • handful of lettuce leaves
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 2 -3 rashers of bacon

How to make an ultimate BLT

  • Trim the fat from the bacon – and grill the bacon until cooked to your liking.
  • Lightly toast the bread.
  • Top one slice of bread with smashed avocado, lettuce, sliced tomato, add the cooked bacon – drizzle over the mayonnaise and top with the other slice of toasted bread.

Make an ultimate BLT your way

  • skip the avocado for a traditional BLT
  • go for an Italian vibe – use ciabatta, spread with pesto, top with avocado, bacon, lettuce and tomato
  • go cheesy with a layer of cool cream cheese – maybe with a snip of chives
  • heat things up a bit and throw in a scattering of chopped chilli
