Basil Pesto BLT Sandwiches



What a monster sandwich!

And so, so, so good.  But I do have a confession.  I've really only come to like bacon in the past 5 years.  I used to tolerate it, but often let it lie on my plate untouched.  What was wrong with me?

Somewhere along the way the indifference to bacon became love.  I'm not sure where my head was back in the day, but I'm happy to report it's back on track.


When I'm not making my own BLT's at home, I'm ordering one at Jimmy John's {the second best place for a BLT}.  And there I put their guacamole on it - genius!  I didn't do that here, but I have before.  

Here I put pesto on it.  And cheese.  And melted the cheese.

It's mind-blowing.


You're probably thinking how did she eat this whole thing?  Well, I didn't.  I ate half, wrapped up the other half and the husband ate the rest when he got home.

At a graduation party this past weekend, one of my husband's cousins said "I can't even look at your blog because I want to eat it all!"

Well, yeah, that is kinda the point of a food blog - to drool and dream.  So I hope she keeps looking at it.  I hope others don't stop looking because they think they'll gain weight just by reading.

Now I'm thinking into this too much.

Let's just eat this sandwich.

Basil Pesto BLT Sandwiches
{Print this Recipe!}
4 large kaiser or sub rolls
8 strips of bacon, cooked
8 slices of tomato
mayo
basil pesto {store bought or homemade}
mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and cut the rolls in half.  Spread one half with mayo and pesto.  Lay slices of cheese on the other half.  Keep open-faced and toast until golden and cheese is melted.

Remove from the oven and top with bacon and tomato.  Slice in half and eat!


The only thing I want more right now than air conditioning {it hit 90 today, but I refuse to turn on the air yet} is this sandwich.

It will DEFINITELY be put on our summer dinner rotation.
