Eating Up This Acronym

BLT Fixins-Duo Dishes

How many ways can you make your BLT?  There are a ton of variations, and we’ve seen them all.  Add avocado, insert a fried egg, lay on a slab of grilled salmon, sprinkle on sprouts.  If you’re a freak about bread, maybe you only have yours on white (not toasted) or wheat (burnt to a crisp).  How about those folks who like to add on the fixings?  Extra mayo, a dollop of mustard, squeeze in some ketchup, load on the black pepper.  It’s exhausting how such a simple sammie can get so complicated, but when it’s just right, it’s right.  Here’s another creation we had in mind when we made a loaf of bread last week.  It’s our simple, yet complex version of a classic.

Oh yes, this was the ticket!  It may seem a little weird to slather mayo on your cinnamon bread, but please trust when we say that it was totally fantastic.  Buttery avocado, salty bacon, crunchy onions and sweet, tart cranberries in one bite is a great taste bud overload.  This was one combination that we knew would be great when we decided to make that Cinnamon Cranberry Wheat Bread.  Now go forth and make your own creation!  There’s no acronym too long when you’re behind the BLT wheel.  Maybe we’ll toss this one over to Deb at Kahakai Kitchen for our Soup, Salad and Sammie Sundays.

  1. That is one fancy BLT! 😉 It looks amazing, I love the salty, sweet, tangy combo of ingredients and flavors. Thanks for sending it to Super Sundays!



  2. Just started following you guys and WOW!–how excited am I!? Love the food, love the pics, love the writing. I started a food blog at the beginning of the summer too and will be definitely be checking your stuff daily!

  3. Oh, yummy! I’ve been looking forward to your BLT post all week – this cranberry bread version looks absolutely to die for delicious!

  4. I’m not sure if I could do the bacon/sweet bread thing. I haven’t tried any of the recipes that combine sweet stuff and bacon, but maybe I should. There has to be some reason everyone is raving about it!

  5. The traditionalist in me is saying, “BLT on cinnamon bread?????” The rest of me is saying, “Do we have any of these in the house RIGHT NOW, because I want this.”

  6. Summer tomatoes were made for BLTs. And the cinnamon cranberry bread sounds like a great new addition, what with the sweet-tart berries enhancing the sweet-tangy flavor of the tomatoes.

  7. The first time I had avocado on my BLT, I thought I had died and gone to BLT heaven…actually you had me at BLT…I just love saying it…BLT BLT BLT…

  8. wow, I would never have thought to put such a combo together, but I would totally eat the sandwich. I love bacon.

  9. BLT – the key to my heart. Everything has to be the best. Applewood smoked bacon and summer sun-ripened tomatoes. Always a little mayo and on toasted multigrain (not too thick on the bread). Avocados, the teeniest bit of dijon, chives, grated onion welcome as well. When I’m really feeling it a fried egg, over hard. You guys are really making me hungry, especially since my husband’s at a work dinner and I didn’t feel like cooking so I had cereal and nectarines for dinner.

  10. I love BLTs with avocado. For me the the key things are really crisp bacon and ripe summer tomatoes. (And hold the plain old mayo… add an herb aioli!)

  11. Love this BLT Sounds Delicious > I going to try it~

    Thanks for sharing your recipe:)

  12. Oh, YEAH.
    I never get tired of new “BLT” combos. Last year, for us, it was the BAT sammich. Maybe this year we’ll branch out and try something totally new.

    The bread here has got to make this sammich truly astounding.

  13. Mmm. Love the combo of savory bacon with cranberry bread. Brilliant. Such a great quick dinner, especially as real tomatoes start ripening.

  14. Great changes to a wonderfully delicious sandwich. It is amazing how you think of such unique flavors with food. Must be a happy explosion in ones mouth when you bite this!
