It’s Foody Friday! (BBLT’s)

Well I’d like to share a little story with you before the recipe if that would be okay? It is why I’m giving you this particular recipe which isn’t technically a recipe but more of a new twist on a very simple summer favorite…


When my brother and I were kids, my Dad always planted a garden. He wanted us  to have the experience of tending our own plants. So he went about the task of fencing off two smaller sections of the garden for my brother and I to call our own. Planting things like tomatoes, radishes, cucumbers, onions and alike, gave us a scene of being a mini-farmer.


My favorite though was the tomatoes. I guess I liked their brightly colored flesh when they were ripe. My Dad gave me a taste for tomato sandwiches then and I still love them today.


I just today, had my first tomato sandwich of the year! I experiment with old favorites to try and put a new twist on them. Next time you have the famed “BLT”, try adding some of these toppings…



boiled egg slices


green olive slices

sliced cheese


Then try something different for the dressing. Instead of traditional mayo, choose…


Ranch dressing

Sour cream

Premixed dressings for potato or macaroni salads

garden vegetable cream cheese


Putting a new twist can bring back some great memories and begin some new ones! Hope you enjoy these suggestions on the old fave!


P.S. If your wondering about the extra “B” in the title… I’ve named this the “Beyond Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sandwich” Let me know how you like it! .

  1. We have a few ripening & they are delish!
    Love to try some of these ideas!
    Thank you for sharing!!
    Today we went out for lunch .
    Imagine thick sour dough bread , bacon, cheese, arugula & raspberry jam. also jalapeño which I quickly discarded) 🥵 but I would add tomatoes to one if I made it at home!


    1. oooooh! Rene that sounds yummy. I’m not the biggest fan of arugula but it probably added a nice flavor to the sandwich. Grab your hubby, make a couple BBLT’s and sit around the table and enjoy each others company. Blessings.
