BLT Sandwich – Cheap vs steep

by Barry Lewis


2 slices of bread (we think better quality helps)
3 slices smoked bacon, cooked to your liking (we think better quality helps)
1 tomato, sliced
few lettuce leaves, washed and shredded
few tbsp mayo

The BLT sandwich – bacon, lettuce and tomato is a classic combo, but do the ingredients costs / quality of them matter? In this cheap vs steep we make a BLT sandwich that is 9 x more expensive comparatively for the same amount of ingredients – with only a few ingredients, will it make a big difference?!

To make the BLT spread the mayo on one side of both slices of bread, warm in a pan to toast, remove, then spread mayo on the other side and toast again in the frying pan until lightly browned.

Build the sandwich with a blob of mayo, lettuce, bacon, tomato, more mayo and the other toasted slice. Serve immediately! Super delicious!
