Connor’s Ultimate BLT
So…apparently everyone thought I was sharing an (alcoholic) asparagus cocktail yesterday?
I’m happy to report that I am not that crazy and even though I do love asparagus a lot, and am very intrigued by this….concept, I can promise you that that will never happen around here. If that does happen, call the authorities because something is seriously wrong.
Thanks for the laughs though!
Instead, I’m compensating by sharing a very easy, very normal sandwich. Connor’s ultimate BLT sandwich to be exact. He used to live on BLT’s as a kid (or so he says), so I ended up making a new, upgraded version for him the other day.
Fuel for all of the studying he’s doing at the moment. I could argue that this is a nap inducing kinda sandwich, but to each their own.
The base is thick, toasted sourdough bread smeared with a little sriracha mayonnaise (I despise mayonnaise in practically every other form, but this I actually like!), and topped with peppery arugula, sliced tomato, bacon, a runny fried egg, and avocado.
So, really, this is not a BLT.
It is actually a BLTEA. Or a TABLE. Or BELTA! Pick your favorite. Either way, this sandwich is most definitely Friday food.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
