Local Tomato BLAT for many!

You have people over for lunch, what to do?

Cook up 8-12 strips of Berkshire Bacon, or our Natural Bacon.

Slice up 2 large St. Anne’s Tomatoes

Wash and pat dry 4 lettuce leaves

Mix up the flesh of one-2 avocados with the juice of one lime

Take one Ciabatta loaf from our bakery.  Slice it in half to make a big sandwich.  Brush with olive oil and grill cut side down on  a hot grill for 1-3 minutes, until desired toastiness is reached.

Layer Toasted Ciabatta, avocado, tomato, bacon, lettuce, ciabatta.  Add pepper to the tomato slices to your taste.  No need to add salt, the bacon takes care of that.

Secure your large sandwich with toothpicks and cut with a sharp bread knife into triangles, or squares.

Enjoy!

Local Tomato BLAT

The regular old BLT may hold some charm, but when the local hot house tomatoes come in, it’s truly reason to celebrate.  They have TASTE!!!

The Best BLAT

Slice up one big St. Anne’s Hot house tomato

Fry up 3-4 strips of either berkshire pork bacon, or our Naturally raised pork bacon, drain

While the bacon is cooking, scoop out the flesh of one avocado.  With a fork , beat the avocado into a smoothish creamy consistency.  Add the juice of one lime, beat some more.  This is your A in the BLAT.  A much tastier option to Mayo.

Toast 2 slices of your favourite bread, I like to use our alpine grain bread.

Layer bread, Avocado, Tomato, Bacon,  Lettuce, Bread.  If you keep the lettuce and the Tomato away from each other, you get a less slippery sandwich.

Enjoy!
