If you want to try the BLT sandwich too, here’s the recipe. 

BLT Sandwich 


    3 sliced tomatoes 

    4 bacon strips 

    1 fresh lettuce 

    4 slices of bread





1.    Firstly, the strips of bacon are tossed on a pan. She uses the dosa pan for making bacon crispy. 

2.    The bacon can be cooked in an oven or microwave too. While the bacon is being cooked, the soft-ball tomatoes are sliced and seasoned with salt and pepper. 

3.    Once the bacon is crispy, it is coated with a mixture of mustard and honey.

4.    Then, the bread is toasted and slathered with mayonnaise. Some of the honey and mustard sauce is spread on this. 

5.    The fresh tomatoes and lettuce are placed on both the slices which are topped with bacon finally. 

6.    The sandwich is finished off with two more slices of bread on top of these.
