Too hot to cook? Short on time? Looking for a crowd-pleaser? This summertime-inspired BLT is perfectly fresh and ready for you to make. Not only does it have the traditional bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes, but it also features pesto mayonnaise.
1 package Fletcher’s Hickory Smoked Dry Cured Bacon
4 slices thick-cut bread
4 teaspoons butter, soft
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon pesto
6 pieces green leaf lettuce
1 tomato, thickly sliced
salt and pepper
Cook bacon on the stove over low heat. Remove the bacon from the pan to a paper-towel-lined plate when it is crispy but not too crisp. Set aside until ready to assemble.
Combine mayonnaise and pesto sauce in a small bowl and set aside.
Prepare your bread. Spread both sides of the bread with butter—place in a skillet over medium heat and toast lightly. Flip the bread and toast the other side until both are golden brown. It’s time to make a sandwich!
Spread about one tablespoon of pesto-mayonnaise on each slice of toasted bread. Top with lettuce and two tomato slices—season with salt and pepper. Add four strips of bacon, and pile it on! Top the bacon with avocado slices. Top the sandwich with the remaining piece of toast and gently press down. Use a sharp serrated knife to slice the sandwich in half in a triangle.
It’s time to enjoy!
