How to Make a BLT Sandwich.
The Classic BLT has to be the greatest sandwich ever created and this basic, no-frills BLT sandwich couldn't be easier to make.


  • 4 Bacon rashers
  • 4 Lettuce leaves
  • 1 Tomato
  • 4 slices of your favourite bread
  • Sandwich spread (butter, margarine, mayonnaise, cream cheese, etc.)


  1. Cut the bacon rashers into small pieces about 7cm long.
  2. Cut the lettuce in to small pieces.
  3. Slice tomato into thin circles.
  4. Take the pieces of bread and put them in a toaster.
  5. While the bread is toasting, fry the bacon in a pan. Stop frying when it looks cooked. Do not burn it.
  6. When the toasted slices are ready, put on the sandwich spread.
  7. Put the lettuce, tomato slices, and bacon together in the sandwich.
  8. Cut into triangles and serve.


  • The slices of bread do not need to be toasted, but it makes the sandwich more crunchy.
