BLTs are pretty sacrosanct in our house. Bacon, lettuce, tomato. Mayo on the toast. Done. So you can understand why seeing a BLT(C) on a recent restaurant menu made us recoil in horror. At first. But then...Who knows, maybe it’s good?
The BLT is the BLT, no question. But what if we think of it as a grilled cheese sandwich, that other paragon of sandwichy perfection.
After all, it’s ok to put bacon on a grilled cheese sandwich. It’s ok to put tomatoes on a grilled cheese sandwich. It’s even ok to put bacon and tomato on a grilled cheese. But what about the lettuce?
Nope. Whether we think of it as a BLT with cheese or a grilled cheese with lettuce, it doesn’t seem to add up to something we want to eat. Call us old-fashioned, but we’ll just keep our BLT without the C for now.
What do you think?
