April is National BLT Month


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.
