– Bacon Lettuce Tomato (BLT): its not office-catering without it! –

The second most popular sandwich in the big old US of A is that classic juggernaut of a sandwich known simply by 3 initials – BLT. As veteran sandwich caterers we are well familiar with the flavour and taste of this classic and and can confirm that no lunch catering platter is complete without a round of deep filled BLTs.

The combination of bacon lettuce and tomato is thought to have it inception in the 20th century, finding the recipe recorded among many good housekeeping guides from the earlier half of the 20th century. As time rolled on, refrigeration and availability of the ingredients meant that in both the US and UK, the BLT was on many a menu. Over here we don’t go for the serving on toasted bread, but appreciate the fine combination of buttered bread, mayonnaise and slices for freshly grilled bacon and red and ripe beef tomato. The simplicity of this tasty dish is that ¬†everyone can personalise with a twist: mustard mayo, sweet pickled gherkins, an egg or avocado all add a forth dimension to the basic trio.
