I love BLT's but only in the summer when garden fresh tomatoes are available.  I had a craving this weekend so I woke up with plan on Saturday to go to our local farmer's market.  I made it there just in the knick of time to get to the "Tomato  Guy's" stand and buy his last 3 tomatoes.  I then bought a pound of bacon made by a local business and searched for lettuce (but it is no longer in season).  From the FM, I stopped at the Harvest Grain bakery and bought a loaf of Old Fashioned White bread - now I was in business (well, needed a quick stop at Target to get some lettuce!).

I came home and guess what I found sitting on the counter - 2 tomatoes!  I hadn't realized WE might have tomatoes ready.  The Fisherman had done some picking while I was gone - oh well, I should have thought of that first!

I decided to go with our tomatoes...

Bacon from Hidden Stream Farm in Elgin MN (this bacon was awesome!)

I like to toast my bread and put Hellman's mayo on both sides of the bread... hmmmm - it was so delicious!

Anyone else out there that likes BLTs??  They are the best!


  1. YUM! I am so in the mood for this!

  2. That looks so inviting, esp the tomatoes. I bought some beautiful heirlooms and a crusty loaf of bread at the farmer's market on Saturday and made a Panzanella. I just love summer tomatoes :)

  3. This looks ah-mazing! Now I am hungry... ;)

  4. I LOVE BLT's with fresh garden tomatoes!! You reminded me I need to make these!

  5. The BLT just might be my all time favorite sandwich. Especially with garden fresh vine-ripened tomatoes. I could eat your sandwich morning, noon, and night.

    I'm enjoying looking around your blog. Lots of mouthwatering recipes and photos. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  6. I LOVE BLTS! Have you ever tried putting avocado on! Fantastic. My favorite sandwich ever :) Nice to meet you!
