California BLT


1 Comment


Jen, our amazing Social Media Coordinator, really knows how to make just about anything look scrumptious! In case you missed Jen’s first mouthwatering photo essay, check out these effortless Jam Drop Cookies. You know what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words… or perhaps a thousand people rushing to make their own dreamy Bacon Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwich? -Amy

You’re going to want this sandwich for a laid-back lunch, for a casual brunch, or for your first picnic of the New Year (and yes, indoor picnics count).

What’s the secret to a truly great BLT?

Fresh ingredients, good quality bacon, and a stellar mayonnaise. Our favorite is Empire Mayo’s White Truffle Mayonnaise, but if you have the time and inclination, whip up some homemade mayonnaise from scratch! {Link from Bon Appetit}

Slice a tomato, fry some bacon, and enjoy a little slice of creamy, crispy, savory heaven. You’re welcome.
