The BLT has always been one of my favorite sandwiches. It has everything you need… bacon, lettuce, tomato, and bread! AKA the secret ingredients to living a happy life. This week I got a HUGE tomato in my CSA as well as some beautiful frisée. All I needed to do was buy the “B” for the most epic BLT sandwich to ever grace my kitchen. I decided to get a little crazy and jazz it up even more by adding some spicy Sriracha mayo, smashed avocado, and a fried egg on top. BECAUSE WHY NOT, RIGHT?!
4 pieces bacon
2 tomato slices, 1/4 inch thick
1/2 small ripe avocado
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 teaspoon Sriracha
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 pieces bread (I used whole wheat)
Start by cooking the bacon until crisp, then set aside. Next, smash the avocado with some olive oil, a light squeeze of lemon, and salt and pepper to taste. In a small bowl mix together the mayo and sriracha and also set that aside. Wipe out most of the grease from the bacon pan, then fry your egg until over easy or medium – depending on how runny you like it! Lastly, toast the bread.
To assemble, spread the smashed avocado on one side of the bread, then top with some tomato slices, bacon, frisée, and lastly the fried egg. Spread the spicy mayo on the other slice of bread and top. Slice in half and inhale entire sandwich as fast as possible!
