Once we can get juicy farm stand or home grown tomatoes, I add BLT sandwiches to our summer menu rotation. Tossing some avocado into the mix is one of my favorite tweaks, but after hearing about a Brie LT, I picked up a wedge of this gooey French cheese. The picky hubby pulls off any avocado that I try to sneak in, but he was thrilled with slices of Brie nestled in his sandwich. So was I!

How to Layer a BLT

A Brie LT is no more complicated than a classic BLT. Not All Brie LTs include bacon, but that’s a must at our house. Below is how I layer my sandwich. Making a double decker version is impressive, but definitely messier!

  • Start with your favorite bread. These were made with a pullman type loaf, but I also love a hearty whole grain bread. Toast two slices. Let the slices cool before adding the mayonnaise so it doesn’t “melt” into the toast.
  • Apply mayonnaise to one slice, make sure not to skimp. Homemade mayo is fabulous, and if you’re daring, mix in a bit of basil. I am quite satisfied with Hellmann’s, and I grab their organic version when I can.

 

  • Next comes the lettuce. I grew up with crisp iceberg, but Romaine or ruffly leaf lettuces are more flavorful. PRO-Tip: Placing lettuce before the tomato helps prevent the juices from making the toast soggy.
  • Ripe, peak of the season tomatoes are a must. I like one thicker tomato slice, but two or three thin slices are nice, too.

 

  • I add my extras like Brie and/or avocado slices next. Is there anything out of the ordinary that you add to your BLT?
  • Buy thick, high quality bacon and top with 2-3 strips before adding the second slice of toast. Spread this toast with mayonnaise, too, if that’s what you fancy!
  • Slice your sandwich in half, grab some napkins and dig in!
