Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, and Egg Sandwich (aka The BLTE)
Here's everything you need to know in order to make a delicious bacon, lettuce, tomato, and egg sandwich—also known as the illustrious BLTE.
- Serves: 1 person
- For the Sandwich:
- 3slices thick cut bacon
- 2slices texas toast
- 2leaves iceberg lettuce
- 3slices tomato
- 1-2 tbsp. lemon-basil aioli
- For the Aioli Recipe:
- 1 ½tbsp. dukes mayo
- 4basil leaves, finely chopped
- the juice of 1 lemon wedge
- ½garlic clove, minced
Step 1Begin by assembling the aioli. Whip together mayonnaise, basil, lemon juice, and garlic clove. Set aside.
Step 2In a cast-iron skillet, fry the bacon over medium heat, flipping occasionally, until desired crispiness has been achieved.
Step 3Remove bacon from pan and fry the egg, sunny-side up in the bacon grease.
Step 4Remove egg and set aside.
Step 5Take both pieces of toast and add them to the bacon greased cast-iron skillet. Let each slice cook for a few minutes on each side until the bread becomes golden and toasted.
Step 6Once they're crispy, slather each side with the aioli (more or less depending on your love for mayo) and on 1 piece, layer the lettuce, tomato, bacon, and fried egg. Gently top the sandwich with the remaining piece of bread so the egg yolk doesn't burst and then serve immediately.
