Bacon Jam BLT

Bacon Jam BLT

Lately the markets have been full of perfectly field ripened beefsteak tomatoes and that means that it is the perfect time to enjoy some BLTs, bacon lettuce and tomato sandwiches! There is just something magically irresistible about that sweet juicy tomato and salty bacon combo that keeps you coming back for more. After enjoying a few regular BLTs it was time to try something a little different and I knew just what I wanted to do, to try adding some bacon jam to a BLT. The bacon jam is just packed with umami and flavour and I figured that you could not go wrong adding even more bacon to a BLT and I was right; these bacon jam BLTs are out of this world good! Feel free to add a little mayo to the BLT or since its summer, how about some basil mayo?

With bacon jam and juicy tomatoes, I'd totally skip the mayo. What a delicious sounding sandwich.

Beefsteak tomatoes are one of those produce items I anxiously await every flavorful, juicy and meaty...I eat them plain with salt! Your BLT looks fabulous! I could eat a sandwich like this every day for lunch or dinner! Yum!

I'm a new follower to Closet Cooking and have found your recipes inspiring. Bacon jam caught my attention and will be giving it a try this week. Question: Do you think the flavour will be very much different if I use honey, instead of maple syrup?

I am SO making this- but it says it makes 2 sandwiches with just 2 slices of bread, 3 bacon slices and 1 leaf of lettuce? Not in my house. This will make 1 sandwich and it's MINE!
Thank you, Kevin.

Anonymous:Honey would definitely work in the bacon jam instead of the maple syrup.

I've never heard of 'baco jam' before, but it sounds like a combination of two wonderful things so may have to give it a try.
