Ultimate BLT Sandwich
Do you really need a recipe for this simple classic? If you want the ultimate version, indeed you do.
Why This Recipe Works
The biggest challenge when building this classic American sandwich is balance. A bulletproof construction blueprint helped us stack the components thoughtfully—meaning that each bite included salty bacon, crunchy lettuce, and sweet tomatoes. Doctoring up mayonnaise with some basil and lemon juice both boosted the overall flavor of the sandwich and helped glue it all together. On either end, we discovered that toasted potato bread was the best option.
