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?
