For dinner last evening, we had BLTs. I broiled pre-cooked deli bacon in the oven, spread out on paper towels, in a large Pyrex baking dish. I thinly sliced a large tomato and a large red onion. Instead of the traditional Romaine lettuce, we used baby spinach. I toasted sourdough bread. At the table, Laura slathered mayonnaise on her bread, and I used Sierra Nevada Stout mustard and a bit of mayonnaise. The BLTs were delightful.
