BELT (Bacon Egg Lettuce Tomato) Sandwich

BELT (Bacon Egg Lettuce Tomato) Sandwich
I certainly have been enjoying a lot of BLTs these days with all of the beautiful local, field ripened beefsteak tomatoes around! It can sometimes be difficult to imagine improving on an already amazing sandwich like the BLT but adding an egg is a good place to start! There are a lot of ways to add an egg to a BLT but the first thought that comes to my mind is in the form of a quick and easy egg salad made with creamy mayo and a touch of a tangy mustard. I guess that once you add egg to the mix it is no longer a BLT but it becomes a BELT sandwich! Of course an even easier way to add an egg to a BLT is to simply add a fried egg and with that runny yolk it is very hard to resist!

This looks delish! I often add curry powder to egg salad and I think I'll try that with the bacon, tomato and lettuce.

I love the addition of the bacon in an egg sandwich. I usually use pancetta and it just sends it over the top. You have me craving one again!

Grace said...

Joanne said...

Chives and egg are so yummy together! I love the looks of this sandwich. So intuitive and yet, why haven't I thought of it!

Y said...

That previous lobster sandwich would have to be one of the more decadent sandwiches I've seen. I like the simplicity of the BELT sandwich too though :)

James said...

I'm a curry egg sandwich lover too. Making some in the next few days. Using curry paste.

I found when you cure your own bacon and make your own mayo it just takes these sandwiches into a different league!

This is so close to my all-time favorite diner order: The BELTCH! Bacon, Egg, Lettuce, Tomato and CHeese.
So so satifying in the middle of the night.

This is a great little sandwich. I make these from time to time when I am in the middle of a movie and I get slightly hungry. I put the film on pause and make myself a BLT or a BELT. I don't know who invented them but they are wonderful. It must have been the same chap who invented the club. Have you ever heard of a 'chip butty' from the UK?

Kevin said...

James Walsh: Yep! My father is from the UK so I learned a bit about butty's.

This is ingenious! Definitely a great spin on one of my all time favorite sandwiches.

Been making bacon, egg, lettuce and tomato since I was very young. Close to 60 years but just hard boil the egg (not too dry) and slice it onto sandwich.

Julie said...

I can never turn down a BLT and I love the concept of the BELT. :)

Your picture of the oozing yolk is perfect!

I don't care for raw tomatoes, my version is a BLOC. That's Bacon, Lettuce, (sauteed) Onions, and Cheese.

april said...

I cannot wait to make this sandwich, thank you for your fantastic recipes and ideas.

Kevin,

On the photo of your BELT, what type of
bread did you use? Just curious as I
only use one type which is whole wheat.
Thanks.

Kevin said...

Anonymous: That bread is a whole grain sour dough.

Anne said...

what brand is the bread? I can't find anything like it

Kevin Lynch said...

Anne: It is a bread that I get from a local baker.
