The bacon brings people in, so it has to be good: smoky; thick enough to chew instead of crumble but still crispy; and baked so that the pieces lay flat. The Lettuce: Chopped romaine. If lettuce is there for crunch, it better crunch. Too often the tomato juices and mayo wilt it before it can everdeliver.

Can you eat a BLT cold? It's OK to eat bacon if it's well-cooked and still hot. Cooking destroys any contamination with bacteria. They are also thinly sliced, so they have lots of square inches for bacteria to grow. They need to bekept really cold.

Is breakfast a BLT? Breakfast BLT. Breakfast BLT made with center cut bacon, lettuce, tomato and egg on whole wheat bread. Add a fried egg or hard boiled egg to a classic BLT sandwich and you have the perfect breakfast sandwich (or have it for lunch). Hard boiled eggs, sliced up think would also make a greatalternative.

What can I use instead of mayo for BLT? Add arugula, 2 slices of tomato, and 3 slices of bacon. Top with a big slice of avocado. The guacamole offers a nice substitute for mayonnaise and the avocado contrasts nicely with the bacon while still adding a mellow flavor. Herbs such as parsley, dill, and watercress add a different flavor toBLTs.
