This delicious BLT recipe will show you how to take a simple bacon, lettuce & tomato sandwich and elevate it to new & delicious heights!
- 1 Egg
- 1 tsp White Wine Vinegar
- 1/2 tsp Mustard
- 50 ml Neutral Oil Sunflower, vegetable or non-virgin olive
- Lemon Juice
- Lemon Juice
- 1 Tomato
- Black Pepper
Cook the bacon
Pre-heat an oven to 180c.
Dust both sides of the bacon with flour and then place in the oven for 20 - 30 minutes, depending how crispy you like it.
Make the mayo
Crack the egg into a bowl and whisk.
Add 1/2 tsp mustard and a tsp vinegar and whisk together, ideally with an electronic whisk. Be thorough. You want it to thicken before you add the oil.
Add a tiny bit of oil and continue to whisk. Don't let the mixture get too runny.
Keep on adding tiny bits of oil, bit by bit, continuously whisking the mixture, until the whole 50ml of oil is combined.
Season with salt and optional lemon juice.
Make the sandwich
Cut two slices of bread and butter both sides of each.
Place into a hot pan on a high temperature and cook each side until gorgeously golden brown.
Remove from the pan and butter again if desired.
Finely slice some lettuce and make a substantial layer on the bottom piece of bread. Season with salt and lemon juice if desired, depending on the saltiness of your bacon.
Thinly slice a tomato and season with salt and black pepper if desired/required. Don't go overboard!
Spoon over a thick layer of mayonnaise.
Either add the bacon directly or chop it up and create a nice layer of bacon on top.
Either add the top slice or add another layer of mayo first and then do so.
