The B.E.L.T.

How can you make a BLT better? ...........

Add an egg!  And call it a BELT!

Serves 1


3 slices of bacon, fried crispy
2 slices of tomato
2 leaves of iceberg lettuce or Boston Bibb lettuce
1 fried egg
Bread of your choosing, preferably Texas toast, toasted

Make your own sauce with:

1.5 tablespoons mayonnaise
Juice from 1 lemon wedge
4 Chopped basil leaves
1/8th teaspoon minced garlic

  1. Begin by making the sauce. Whip together mayonnaise, basil, lemon juice, and garlic and set aside.
  2. In a cast iron skillet, fry the bacon over medium heat, flipping occasionally, until desired crispiness has been achieved.
  3. Remove bacon from pan and fry the egg, sunny side up in the bacon grease.
  4. Remove egg and set aside. 
  5. Take both pieces of toast and add them to the bacon greased cast iron skillet. Let each slice cook for a few minutes on each side until the bread becomes golden and toasted.
  1. Once they're crispy, slather each side with the homemade sauce (more or less depending on your love for mayo) and on one piece, layer the lettuce, tomato, bacon and fried egg. Gently top the sandwich with the remaining piece of bread, so the egg yolk doesn't burst, and serve immediately. Yum Yum!
