Le BLT

4 Jan

Unfortunately, if I don’t eat every two hours my hands start to shake, I get grumpy (even a little weepy if it’s been a very long time) and sleepy.  The hunger shakes struck when I was out running errands and so before I got really nasty or passed out we stopped at Swensons for some blazing hot tater tots.  It’s a family run, strictly Northeastern Ohio drive-in burger joint that has a special spot in most every NE Ohio native’s heart, unless they’re a total Scrooge.  By the time we got home I was still hungry which catapulted exponentially after browsing through Paste Magazine’s 15 best food movies.  So, I whipped up a BLT.

Fried 2 strips of bacon, and once I flipped them I threw in a handful of halved grape tomatoes.  While those were bouncing all over the place, I stuck 2 pieces of wheat bread in the toaster, then turned the burner off under the b and t.  Next a little miracle whip spread on one slice of bread, tomatoes over top, 2 slices of havarti — one on each slice (or you can put the cheese over the tomatoes while they’re still in the pan until it melts a bit), then the bacon halved so it makes 4 pieces.  A scoop of horseradish on one slice spread over, or under, the cheese, then a big wad of crisp romaine.  Crunchy, creamy, bacony goodness — really nothing beats a BLT in a pinch:  “So shines a good deed in a weary world” (courtesy of Willy Wonka).
