Strange Food Combos: Would You Put Cheese on a BLT?

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?
