A Little Ahead Of The Game: Cajun Bacon BLT

I might just be a little ahead of the game here.....BLT when it's not even summertime yet? Not even tomato season yet? I hope there isn't a law written somewhere about seasonal BLT's.....If so, I'm in BIG trouble.

I had a breakfast meeting last week with a very good friend of mine (I can call her friend even though she's family, right?).
On my way to the breakfast meeting I heard an advertisement on the radio about a local meat market having a sale on Amish smoked baby Swiss cheese. OMG!! I knew right then and there that I had to get some of that cheese. Cheese is my weakness.....

Funny story: After the breakfast meeting I high-tailed it to the meat market. And of course, you cannot enter a meat market and only buy one thing. RIGHT?
While I was there I found this Cajun spiced bacon. Perfect for BLT's! But anyway, when I was checking out with my smoked baby Swiss cheese, 1 pound of Cajun bacon, 1 pound of peppered bacon, and 1 pound of fresh bulk sausage, I asked the sales clerk if I get a discount if I mention the advertisement I heard on the radio. He just stood there and looked at me. He didn't know what to say. And then I finally gave in and said, "I'm just kidding."
He gave a sigh of relief and continued ringing up my purchase. I love messing with people to see their reaction. This one took the cake......

I also found these Rosemary and Olive Oil flat breads. I am building this Cajun BLT as I shop.....
I love flat bread and I think it's a lot better for you than regular bread. It's also very versatile. You can grill it, make a panini, grilled cheese, use it as a wrap, etc.....

This particular flat bread was connected in the middle and suggested folding it over once you get your sandwich goodies in there. I tore them apart and grilled them on my George Forman grill.

See how they turned nice and brown with grill marks in them.....I love grill marks! The marks make foods look like you put a lot of effort into preparing them. little secret.

Since I have a picture demonstrating the construction of my Cajun style BLT, I don't really need to leave a recipe. Was this sandwich good? It was AMAZING!!

Break the law, make yourself a BLT before tomato season.....just make sure you buy the organic tomatoes if you want the closest thing to fresh.



  1. Angie, this looks freakin' amazing!

  2. Looks good Angie. That's all I'm able to do for a while since I watching the carbs. Hope you feel better very soon.

  3. What meat market do you go to? This sounds mighty good!!

    1. I found this bacon at Fort Defiance Meats in Defiance, Ohio.


I look forward to and appreciate any comments.
Thank you for stopping by.
