The best thing about a sandwich is there is no right way to make one. You can add anything you like. You can leave off something you don’t like. You can take a classic sandwich, like the BLT, and change or enhance it, if you will. The same can be done for the Grilled Cheese. One of my daughters did not want a BLT, but a grilled cheese with bacon. Ok. Love it! My husband wanted a BLT, so I made him the classic. My other 2 daughters wanted a plain grilled cheese and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I wanted to have a BLT with a poached egg.
You might say, “Why are you making everyone something different? I thought you only make one thing and everyone has to eat it?”
That is my rule for dinner. I only make one meal. You eat it or starve. No one has starved. Everyone eats. Breakfast and lunch are a different story. I have no problem making different meals for breakfast and lunch. Usually everyone always wants to have the same thing anyway. Every once in a while, someone might want to be unique, so I roll with it. C’est la vie!
Here are some very lovely pictures of my BELT. I toasted some rosemary french bread, slathered it with mayo and horseradish, added my bacon, lettuce, and tomato, and topped with my poached egg. Messy, but oh so good.
