Bacon and tomato sandwiches

Bacon and tomato sandwiches, also known as BLT sandwiches, are a classic and delicious choice for a quick and satisfying meal. Here’s a simple recipe for making bacon and tomato sandwiches:


  • 8 slices of your favorite bread (white, whole wheat, or sourdough)
  • 8-12 slices of crispy bacon
  • 2 large tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cook the Bacon:
    Cook the bacon until it’s crispy and golden brown. You can use a skillet on the stovetop or bake it in the oven according to your preference. Drain excess grease on paper towels.
  2. Prepare the Bread:
    Toast the bread slices if desired, depending on your preference for a warm or crispy texture.
  3. Spread Mayonnaise:
    Spread a generous layer of mayonnaise on one side of each bread slice. This adds a creamy texture to the sandwich.
  4. Assemble the Sandwiches:
    On the mayo-covered side of one slice of bread, layer the crispy bacon, tomato slices, and lettuce leaves. Season the tomatoes with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  5. Top and Cut:
    Place another slice of bread on top, mayo side down, to complete the sandwich. Press down gently. Optionally, cut the sandwiches in half diagonally or into quarters.
  6. Serve:
    Serve your bacon and tomato sandwiches immediately. They can be enjoyed as is or paired with your favorite side dishes, such as chips or a salad.

Feel free to customize your BLT sandwiches by adding extras like avocado slices or swapping out the lettuce for arugula. The key is to use fresh and quality ingredients for the best flavor.
