Day 4 of Sandwich Week!
While I baked my bacon, I fried the pastrami in a little olive oil to crisp it up a bit.
Assembly TIME! Lightly toast the bread, spread a bunch of Best Foods mayonnaise on the toasted bread, top with lettuce, then tomatoes…the method to my madness is placing the lettuce first then tomatoes, keeps our bread nice and toasty, now top the tomatoes with the bacon…the bacon is going to warm the tomatoes, while flavoring them with bacon juices…yes..it’s about to get even better people.
Top the bacon with the cooked pastrami, and finally top the cooked pastrami with the fried egg…don’t forget, we have another piece of bread, lathered with more mayonnaise!
It was totally worth the layering effort! Don’t worry, after one try, you’ll be a BLT making pro.
Now, don’t be scared…if you dare…stack the sandwich up and try to eat it like this….lol…Oh…don’t forget the ice cold coke in the bottle…Let’s EAT!
