When you visit your favorite Central Market, look for our Build A Better BLT handout full of recipes for interesting ways to add new flavors to the classic BLT. You may think you've tried it all when it comes to the humble BLT, but you haven't tried all these! You'll discover how to make Spicy BLT with Chipotle Mayonnaise, a Butter Toasted Avocado BLT, and BLTs with shrimp, or apples (pictured), or melty cheese, and more!
To kick it all off, though, let's stick with basics: The can't-miss, classic BLT. Here's your blueprint for building it better:
Central Market Old Fashioned Split-Top White or 100% Whole Wheat Bread, lightly toasted
Duke’s Real Mayonnaise
Burgers’ Smokehouse Applewood Bacon Steaks or Central Market All Natural Uncured Hickory Bacon
Iceberg or Romaine Lettuce, thinly sliced
Ripe Tomatoes-on-the-Vine, cored and sliced, lightly seasoned with salt and freshly ground pepper
All-American Cobb BLT Option: Top bacon with crumbled Bleu cheese.
