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
