Make this Weekend Sparkle with Bacon...
Yay, the weekend has finally arrived... well close enough! In approx. 9 hours, give or take, the weekend is ours... and that calls for a celebration! What better way to celebrate, than with bacon!
Bacon, in my opinion, should be its own food group... Funny enough, I don't eat a lot of meat and I recently have been toying with the idea of becoming a vegetarian... but honestly the thought of giving up bacon scares me! It's a constant battle... one that I consistently loose. My thoughts are, if loving bacon is wrong, then I don't wanna be right...
Last Sunday, the boyfriend requested a simple ham sandwich for lunch... which I was less than thrilled about, since I don't eat ham (yes I know it essentially comes from the same place as bacon... but again, in my head bacon is "different" lol). So I thought, yes, lets do sandwiches, but with a little sparkle (i.e. stepped up a notch). Then was born the BLT+
BLT+ (serves 2)
- 2 Small Loafs of Bread (I used pretzel rolls)
- 8-10 Slices of Bacon
- 1 Med. Yellow Heirloom Tomato
- 2 Large Leafs of Lettuce
- 4 Slices of Garlic Pickles
- 4 tbs. Wasabi Lime Mustard
- 1 Avocado
Slice bread in half, add wasabi lime mustard to both sides, add lettuce, top with pickles then bacon, add tomatoes, assemble all together, and enjoy! I kept my avocado on the side but I know it would be great added on, if you so choose.
It doesn't get much simpler than a sandwich, but at Sage & Sparkle, we're all about making the everyday ordinary, extraordinary, and this BLT+ hit the spot!
The ingredients don't matter as much... all that matters is that you enjoy the process and the finished product! With a few simple additions I was able to take a ordinary sandwich and make it sparkle! You can do it too!!!
What will you make sparkle this weekend???
