Thank god I read Bacon Unwrapped because I would have never known that April is National BLT Month. Heather wrote about this on April 1st so I thought it was an April Fools joke. But then I looked into it and it’s true! A whole month to celebrate BLT’s.

If you’re some kind of freak and don’t know what a BLT is, it’s a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich. It’s the second-most popular sandwich in the US, with the ham sandwich being first. It became popular after WWII when supermarkets expanded and offered fresh lettuce and tomatoes all year round.

I only enjoy a BLT at home, I don’t think a restaurant would do it right. Since the bacon must be cooked to crispy perfection, I like to do it myself. I also like to finish off a BLT with a heaping spread of mayonnaise. Yummy!

This post is making me hungry, I think I am going to make a BLT for dinner.

    Well since there are stores fresh tomatoes are a round all year. But I do get what your saying. A tomato you grow yourself is always better then the ones in the store.

    I’ve got 30 pounds of Vande Rose Farms Dry Cured Applewood Smoked Bacon leftover from the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival that will be great for some hearty BLT’s with a couple cold PBR’s!

    Ohhhhhhhhhhh Bacon!

    That would make an giant BLT if you cooked it all at the same time. You would need 12 tomatoes and 3 heads of lettuce.
