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.
