We love BLT’s and over the years we have seen the traditional BLT done many different ways… This recipe comes from the September 2010 Food Network magazine and is a healthier alternative to the sandwich that we love so much….
- 4 Tomatoes
- 4 Bacon slices
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/2 cup chopped lettuce
- 1/2 cup chopped stale bread cubes
- 2 Tbl mayonnaise
- salt and pepper
Preheat the over to 425 degrees. Hollow out 4 tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper and invert to drain. Cook 4 slices of bacon with 1 garlic clove; chop, then toss with 1/2 cup chopped lettuce, 1/2 cup chopped stale bread cubes, 2 tablespoons mayonnaise and salt and pepper. Stuff into the tomatoes, then brush with the bacon drippings. Bake for 20-30 minutes.
