BLT Sandwiches with Burger and Fry Sauce

This isn't your typical BLT sandwich.  This has your typical bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes, but also the addition of cheese and fry sauce.  The result?  A delicious and unforgettable sandwich!

I'm not typically a sandwich eater, but I simply can't resist a BLT!  Especially one that's homemade and packed with bacon in every bite ;)  

As I was looking through Sashi's blog, Get Off The Couch and Cook (awesome name, by the way!), I made quite a list of recipes that I wanted to make for this month's Secret Recipe Club. I love Sashi's stance on eating: avoiding prepacked foods while still enjoying the foods you love, made with real ingredients.  She's a woman after my own heart!  Some of the recipes that caught my eye were Gyro Pizza with Homemade Tzatziki and Greek Seasoning, Apple Pie French Toast, and Chicken Nachos.  Ultimately though, I had to make her BLT because I just couldn't resist it!

The thing that caught my eye about this sandwich was the addition of Burger and Fry Sauce.  It reminded me of when my dad would mix mayo, ketchup, and mustard on his plate and dip his fries in it--but much better!  I opted to omit the chicken from this sandwich in the interest of time, and wanting a lighter meal, but I'll definitely be making these sandwiches with chicken too in the future.

You'll definitely want to make the Burger and Fry Sauce and keep it in a container in your fridge.  It's amazing on burgers too (of course!).  Sashi also recommended coating each side of the bread in a thin layer of mayonnaise before toasting it in the oven.  Don't skip that step--I'll never make BLTs another way!  All in all, this is one delicious sandwich!

BLT Sandwich

Makes 4 sandwiches

Ingredients:

8 slices thick cut bacon
8 slices whole wheat bread
1/4 cup mayonnaise
4 slices cheddar cheese
1/4 cup Burger and Fry Sauce (recipe below)
lettuce
sliced tomatoes

1.  Cook bacon until crisp.  I bake mine: place bacon in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes, until crisp.  Drain on a plate lined with paper towel.

2.  Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on both sides of each piece of bread.  Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees until bread is toasted, flipping to toast both sides.

3.  Assemble sandwiches by putting fry sauce on one slice of bread, top with tomato, lettuce, bacon, cheese, and a second slice of bread.  Serve warm.
