BLT Recipes

Grilled BLT Skewers
Bacon. Lettuce. Tomato. It doesn't get much better than this -- until now. With BLT soups and salads or BLT coleslaw, BLT shrimp and grits, and more, these BLT recipes defy the sandwich quo.

Roasted BLT Salad

Popping salad in the oven may sound like a weird thing to do, but after you try this BLT version, you won’t want it any other way. Roasting the ingredients helps lock the flavors in, making just a drizzling of balsamic all the dressing you need.

Ultimate Bacon Sandwich

If you thought the BLT couldn't get any better, then you haven't tried our tomato switch-up. Ditch the slices for homemade tomato peach chutney. Melted mozzarella and buttery Texas toast make this sandwich ooey-gooey good.

Tomato Bacon Sipper

This fruit drink is far from sweet. Garlic, bacon, and a squeeze of sriracha shake things up in this BLT take on a Bloody Mary.

Summer's best flavor combination is branching out. Try BLT pizza, waffles, or dip for an unusually delicious twist on an old classic.

Finally! A casserole both mom and kids can enjoy. Made with eggs, the classic BLT trio, and kettle-cooked chips, this dish will be your new favorite option for brunch or brinner.

BLT Dessert Bites

We love the BLT combo so much we made it a dessert. Enjoy candied bacon and a slathering of sweet tomato jam sandwiched between two honey shortbread cookies. Mouth watering, yet?

Uptown BLT

Fancy up your BLT sandwich with curry mayo, plus red and yellow tomatoes. Rye offers a nice break from that same-old sandwich bread. Stick it in the toaster for some crunch.

Creamy BLT Coleslaw

We love a good mashup, and this BLT coleslaw is one for the books! Tote the creamy-cool side along to your next picnic or potluck and watch it disappear in seconds.

Grilled Pork Chops with Bacon and Tomato

A dinner-long jam sesh is inevitable when it comes to these kale-covered chops. Drape them in a quick bacon jam made with unexpected ingredients like OJ and fresh ginger.

Who doesn’t love chicken-bacon-ranch? This trendy mashup is not only better than the original BLT, it's also better for you! You can thank the less-fat bacon and lettuce wrap for that.

BLT Corn Cakes with Buttermilk Dressing

Everything's better with bacon -- especially the candied kind. Just sizzle the strips in brown sugar and cayenne, then top with tomatoes and a dangerously delicious buttermilk dressing. 

Peppery Turkey BLT

If you thought the BLT couldn't get any better, then you haven't tried our tomato switch-up. Ditch the slices for homemade tomato peach chutney. Melted mozzarella and buttery Texas toast make this sandwich ooey-gooey good.

Enjoy an evening in Roma -- or roma tomatoes, that is. This simmering BLT soup is filled with the sweet fruit, plus crumbly bacon and tender shallots.
