Leah’s Ultimate BLT

11 Jun

This is definitely not your every day, run-of-the-mill BLT!  Leah came up with this recipe some time ago and it immediately became a family favorite.  It’s a simple matter of assembling the ingredients and mixing up the sauce.  It is a treat anytime!


Bacon,(I like to use Wright’s thick-sliced hickory smoked bacon) cooked until crisp (this can be done on a sheet pan in the oven instead of having to stand over a frying pan and fry it)

romaine lettuce

sliced tomato

fresh mozzarella, sliced (you can buy it pre-sliced) Note:  this is not regular mozzarella, be sure to buy fresh mozzarella

French baguettes

1/4-1/2 cup pesto

1/4-1/2 cup mayonnaise


Place bacon in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake in a 400 degree for about 15 minutes or until done.

Drain on paper towels.  Meanwhile, stir together the pesto and the mayonnaise in equal parts to make the sauce, about 1/2 cup sauce should be enough, so that would be 1/4 cup pesto and 1/4 cup mayonnaise.

Assemble the other ingredients. The key to a good sandwich is good ingredients.  It’s worth it to buy the baguettes from a bakery.  We bought ours locally at Kirchoff’s Bakery in Paducah.

Slice the baguette into sandwich sized pieces and cut each piece in half.

Place under the broiler for a few minutes to toast.

To assemble sandwich, spread both sides of toasted baguette with the pesto mayonnaise.

Next add a layer of fresh mozzarella and bacon.

Add sliced tomato and Romaine lettuce.

Place the top half of the baguette on the sandwich and Enjoy!
