Who doesn’t love a classic BLT?
Who hasn;t hated the clean up or burning those delicious slices?
Here are few tips for perfect bacon…
Tip #1. Bacon on the stove top should always be made in a heavy bottomed skillet for an even crisp. Cast iron is really good too.
The trick to cooking perfect bacon without lots of splatter came from my Daddy.
You see, I was always in a hurry. My biggest cooking burns usually came from being in a hurry. You know, where you turn the heat up just a little.
My cooking bacon was spitting and splattering just making one big mess. Simple advice often comes in a few simple words.
Linda, if you turn the heat down it won’t splatter as much.
Mentally I am thinking really, that’s it? Daddy was right.
Tip #2. If you turn down the heat your bacon will cook more evenly and won’t curl up as much.
See my burned bacon…it can happen in a flash. I walked away.
DIDN’T FOLLOW MY OWN ADVICE.
Why did I think I had a few seconds longer when I walked away?
Perfect bacon just takes a little bit longer at medium heat with steady watching for time to flip and to take out of the skillet.
It is so worth the wait for a delicious perfect classic BLT!
Steps to make a classic BLT
Have a good medium toast on your bread. Too light? The bread can get soggy. Using a multigrain bread instead of white is the only update to this classic sandwich.
Use your favorite mayo.
Layer lettuce and thick sliced tomatoes warm from the garden. That is a seasonal fabulous taste. No salt is needed.
Don’t be stingy with the bacon.
Cut in half.
Take a big bite and enjoy the taste explosion.
Have a wonderful summer day!
