This BLT Sandwich is on toasted french bread with a homemade thousand Island dressing...The dressing gives the sandwich a great taste. I also bake the bacon for easy clean up and perfect bacon pieces. I hope you enjoy it.

How To Make blt sandwich

  • 1
    Bacon - Baking the bacon is easier and less clean up. Line a baking sheet with foil. Put bacon slices on the foil and place the baking sheet on the center rack of a cold oven. Turn oven on to 400°F....and just leave it to cook for 15-17 mins. Bacon will be golden brown, DO NOT BURN... watch it. ( If you want you can flip the bacon over with tongs at 10 mins) Place on paper towel or paper plate to drain.
