I’ve been craving BLTs. We’ve got fresh tomatoes and bacon in the freezer. We also have fresh cucumbers. While it isn’t called for in the recipe, you could use cucumber in place of the green onions, too, or mix cucumber and romaine.
Bacon, lettuce and tomato is a classic combination. This recipe has a nice presentation and eliminates the carbs from the bread. This also makes for a quick meal if you cook and crumble the bacon ahead and store it in the fridge or freezer. If I have a recipe calling for a slice or two of bacon, I cook the whole pound and put the excess in the freezer for the next time I need some.
The leftover bacon grease can be used as the fat in seasoning vegetables or to fry eggs for a savory recipe. Never throw out the bacon fat, it’s useful for many different meals.
