I make oatmeal bread. It's soft and when it's fresh out of the breadmaker it doesn't hold the slices of tomato without falling apart. After wiping tomato and mayo off my iPad screen or laptop keys several times as the sandwich fell apart I decided something had to give. Either I had to give up my BLTs or figure out a new way to eat them. Not wanting to go without I came up with this.
Instead of making a sandwich I tore up the bread into small bites, cut the tomato the same way and took my kitchen scissors to the bacon. I didn't have any lettuce so that's why it's -L. Shredded lettuce works in this well.
Mix them all together with mayo or Miracle Whip. Salt and pepper to taste and voila. A BLT-L bowl. I eat mine with a spoon. It's easier since I'm usually reading while I eat lunch. I know, bad for the waistline but I'm not giving it up.
It's a yummy way to eat a BLT without getting your hands messy.
