Today, it is easy to find bacon as the star of many dishes, including cupcakes and flavored beer. But this breakfast treat’s humble beginnings as a lunchtime staple was birthed through the BLT. Typically, this sandwich is constructed of bacon, lettuce, and tomato piled between two slices of bread and slathered in mayo. Sandwich connoisseurs took this small finger sandwich from delicate to decadent with additions like cheese and avocado. With decadence in mind, we liked this recipe from chef Gerard Strong of Denver’s Central Bistro, featuring a fried green tomato, avocado, and a garlic aioli.
