Woven Bacon

Or... Weird Stuff I've Found on Pinterest...


We love BLTs.
They are not on the menu all that often since
they are white bread, mayo and well, bacon.
But... when the tomatoes are fresh from the
garden it is time for BLTs. 


One day on Pinterest I noticed a pin
for woven bacon.  This person felt they
did not get a bite of bacon every time by
using strips so they wove it and then
cooked it.  I didn't think my bacon to
tomato/lettuce ratio was a problem but
I tried it anyway.  I used 3 strips of bacon,
cut in half and woven in a simple over/under.


While the bacon cooked, I toasted the bread,
added romaine lettuce and sliced tomatoes
and yes, mayo.  It looks like a lot of mayo
but it is just spread very thinly, also add some
salt & pepper.


Cook bacon as you desire, you can see I
like bacon very crispy.  Then drain it on
paper towels.


Add to the sandwich, it fits quite nicely.


I have to admit, I never knew what I was
missing before, there was bacon in every
bite and it made the sandwich better.

A Pinterest score!

    Bacon lovers unite! There is always something new you can do with bacon.... they even have bacon sprinkles (!) at a local frozen yogurt shop! Frozen yogurt with bacon bits?
