April is National BLT Sandwich month. I am not sure who comes up with these “National” days, but someone was on their game this month. The classic bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich, with mayo of course, is hard to top, unless you make the bacon better, the tomato better, use something other than iceberg lettuce and use a great bread.This recipe goes way beyond the norm with bacon that has been “treated” with a glaze of bourbon, sugar and black pepper. The tomato in this recipe is far more than the perfect summer tomato, it is a work of art, beauty in every sense of the word. The tomato is crusted with panko bread crumbs after a dip in flour, egg and fried to perfection forming a golden crust and locking in all those wonderful juices.The use of sour dough bread, a simple spicy mayo and baby kale round this BLT sandwich off to utter perfection. So celebrate National BLT Sandwich day with any version of a BLT, but you won’t regret taking the time to put this one together.For more great recipes watch Chef Troy Gagliardo on WCCB Charlotte’s Rising morning show from 7-9 am for “Tuesdays with Troy” every week, also be sure to visit www.cheftroy.net.
