At the show development meeting yesterday at my workplace, we discussed a possible cooking show, wherein some chef with ‘tude explores the ins and outs of making ridiculously simple things. We watched what they had so far, which was a 10-minute clip of some surly bastard talking about BLTs and how butchers have large hands. Every single one of us left the meeting craving one, despite the fact that the chef was a bona fide idiot.
The BLT Sandwich
- 2 slices of bacon, halved
- 1 roma tomato
- 1 leaf of lettuce (Boston, iceberg, romaine, whatever)
- Hellman’s mayonnaise
- 2 slices of whole wheat bread
Durr cook the bacon and put everything between the bread.
I tried to keep it simple here — I had never made one of these before, so I didn’t want to get too crazy. I did, however, throw some black pepper onto the bacon while it was cooking in the pan. Was that crazy? Do normal people do this too? I don’t know.
