I love BLTs, they remind me of my mom’s luncheonette she owned when I was a teenager. Back then, I can’t tell you how many bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches I ate. But I never tried one with an egg, until I saw my friend John Ondo post one on his Facebook wall – mind blown!

If you like your egg runny, fry it up! If you like a firm yolk, cover the skillet and keep it on low until the yolk sets. Hard boiled eggs, sliced up think would also make a great alternative.

Variations

  • Swap the bacon for turkey bacon
  • Add slices of avocado to the sandwich
  • Make it gluten-free with gluten-free bread

    This looks so good! Unfortunately, I don’t think Arnold makes the light breads anymore (not listed anywhere on their website). Can anyone make a recommendation on something similar? I have used the Sara Lee Delightful breads in the past, but the slices are teeny tiny and don’t look anywhere nearly as robust as those pictured here of the Arnolds. Super interested in a similar product to that if available. I realize this is an older recipe so hoping someone sees this! Thanks!

      There is a brand of bread I recently discovered, called Lewis Bake Shop – Healthy Life bread. There are several types of bread. The type I eat is the 100% whole wheat bread. It’s 35 calories per slice, and it is substantial bread. It doesn’t cut down on size or flavor at all. It’s delicious, and I think it’s better than the Sara Lee bread I had been eating previously. Don’t tell my husband or he might try to steal my new bread! =) I hope this helps you, and you can find the bread. Good luck!

    I have been making them for years and call it a BELT sandwich, exactly as you described, but with NO mayo. It rally is tasty without extra fat.

  3. This was so yummy! I swapped the light mayo for mashed avocado and added some red pepper flakes. Definitely going to make again!

      The bread is the bad part of the sandwich, not the bacon. Make some keto cloud bread from eggs and you’ll be fine. Do not be afraid of fat. Great recipe. Thank you for sharing.

    1. I pre-cooked center cut bacon a week ago to follow one of the SkinnyTaste meal plans and it went great. I slightly undercooked it but I don’t even know if that was necessary.

  4. My version…
    Tne BLATCH…

    BACON…
    LETUCE/SPINACH….
    AVACODO…
    TOMATO…
    CHEESE…

    Messy, but yummy…

  5. I noticed that the calories you list are not accurate in quite a few of your recipies. In this particular one, the bread in the sandwich is 220 calories and then the egg is 75 and when you add the turkey bacon and all the other items it is well over 288 calories. I like the recipe but I wish the nutritional info was accurate.

    1. Good news! The bread Gina used (and mentioned in the recipe) is a great calorie deal at only 80 calories for TWO slices! Isn’t that terrific! Now you can have your g read and eat it, too! 😉
      Arnold® Bakery Light™ Bread 100% Whole Wheat.

      1. Thanks for posting the details on the bread used. The thin sliced bread I use is a few more calories so now I know how to adjust. If your bread is substantially higher in calories, I am sure it would be lovely as an open-faced sandwich as well!

    2. That is definitely not light bread. Light bread is only 1 point per a slice. I use nature’s harvest light multigrain. It is also only 40 calories a slice
