Basil BLT with Havarti on Sourdough bread


Sorry it's been so long since I posted. I've been lazy and not cooking anything new. But this is Mmmmmmmmmmmm.... let me tell you! So, in honour of lovely in season garden tomatoes....


1) Cook bacon (unless your a vegetarian; then of course you'll want to skip that step) ;o)

2) Toast 2 pieces of buttered sourdough bread under the broiler

3) Add to one piece of sourdough:
  • little bit o' mayo
  • little bit of lettuce (on both sides keeps bread from sogging) i like the crunch of iceberg
  • tomatoes
  • salt & fresh ground pepper
  • LOTs of fresh basil (i like it chopped)
  • a thin slice of Havarti
Stick it under the broiler (to melt that havarti cheese)

4) Add to the other piece of sourdough:
  • little bit o' mayo
  • more fresh basil! :O)
  • bacon (if you eat it) i like to tear it into bite sized pieces
  • more lettuce
Smoosh sides together & chomp away,

Happy eating!
:O)
