Galganov's Free Recipe for a Modernized Classic - Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwiches or BLTs on Pita!
The Background Story
We thought it was a new idea ... We were making BLTs one day. We had left over filling ... not enough for a sandwich but perfect to toss into a half piece of pita so there we were ... plenty of pita. We cut a half and put it back - keeping one half out for our sandwich.
Well, here it is. The perfect marriage of an American classic sandwich filling prepared in what is believe by some to be a historical, Mediterranean bread. What a sandwich, "A contemporary, historic, international, American classic."
It was a wonderful, light snack. Then we went on line to look to see what others had done and there it was - the BLT on pita.
The problem, to us, is that BLT means and can only mean "Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato". There's nothing wrong with a BLTC (bacon, lettuce, tomato and cucumber) ... but it's not a BLT.
We prefer to use chicken or turkey bacon product (available as kosher/halal for those of relevant faiths). We also prefer making our BLT on home made pita!
Of course, let's not forget the Classic BLT!
Of course, this bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich is nice served with coleslaw ... or just as a light, satisfying snack on its own - and isn't a pita pocket sandwich the perfect travel food?
