I love playing about with a classic recipe, and the BLT is about as classic as you can get. I'm missing one or two of my usual photos; however, I was building these for a group of friends, and had my hands full. In this recipe, I’m using a thick English muffin, two kinds of yummy cheeses, and, if you’re willing to take a chance, a “special” sauce. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
