I have a love of BLT’s from childhood, and always enjoy them when I want an easy and delicious sandwich. Today, I am re-working mine to include my 6 favorite ingredients. With bread as a vessel for all the BLT deliciousness, you can’t start a sandwich without quality bread, like Pepperidge Farm® from the bread aisle at Walmart. I love Farmhouse Hearty White because it is slow baked, crafted from a small batch recipe, and uses wholesome ingredients.
In the salad dressing aisle at Walmart, I found Hellmann's® Real Mayonnaise. It is made with real, simple ingredients, like eggs, oil, and vinegar. I love using it to amp up my sandwiches by mixing it with fun flavors too. Hello, bacon jam mayonnaise is coming my way soon! Hillshire Farm® Thin Sliced Honey Ham is slow roasted for hours, has the perfect amount of sweetness with premium quality honey, and has no artificial flavors or by-products. Look for Hillshire Farm® Thin Sliced Honey Ham in the packaged meat section at Walmart.
B: Crispy bacon is usually a must, but sometimes I don’t feel like baking or frying bacon. That’s where bacon jam comes in. If you’ve never had bacon jam, you need to get your hands on some immediately! It is the perfect spread, in addition to the Hellmann's® Real Mayonnaise, and gives such great bacon flavor while helping to hold the sandwich together.
L: While I love lettuce and eat it regularly, spinach is a great option and totally different twist for this sandwich. The deep green leaves taste great with everything and are really pretty when you look at the cut sandwich. Plus, since the leaves are flatter, the sandwich stays together better. Come on, I mean we are talking serious sandwich construction and engineering here, lol. Also, those fun little cocktail picks help hold your sandwich together too.
T: A BLT is nothing without the tomato. I love having tomatoes on all my sandwiches, with the exception of peanut butter and jelly. Grilled cheese, Italian, tuna, you name it and I have a tomato on that sandwich. Make sure your tomato is nice and ripe, and cut in about 1/4-inch pieces - not too big and not too small.
When layering my sandwich, I place Hellmann's® Real Mayonnaise on the inside of both pieces. Bacon jam goes on one side and tomatoes on the other. Spinach on top of the bacon and ham on top of the tomatoes. Sandwich it together and cut it diagonally, because that is a pretty cut, but you can also cut it straight across - I won’t judge.
Bacon Jam & Ham BLTs are perfect for any day of the week when you are in a time-crunch but want a delicious meal. Here are more creative sandwich ideas from Pepperidge Farm®.
