Summer is the time for the very best in bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwiches. Especially when they are made with fresh, locally grown produce. You can jazz them up a bit, if you’d like, by trying some of the new BLT ideas. Some may just become your new favorites.
BLT Pizza – This is a blend of two camping favorites. You’ll need a pre-baked pizza crust and then you can top it with a mixture of Miracle Whip, garlic powder, onion powder, and basil. Now sprinkle a blend of shredded cheddar and mozzarella and the top with some crispy bacon bits that you cooked up previously. It’s a perfect summer lunch treat for the whole family.
BLT Dip – You can serve this wonderful mix of your favorite BLT flavors with crackers, chips, or pita triangles. Just add some sour cream, mayo, cooked and crumbled bacon, tomatoes, and green onions together. Now you have a tasty dip for snacking on during those lazy afternoons when you’re catching up with friends. You may as well make copies of the recipe because you will be asked for it once your friends take a taste.
BLT Skillet – This is a warm, one-pot meal (if you don’t count cooking the pasta). Cook your pasta and set it aside. Cook the bacon and remove from the pan, then drain most of the grease. Now add tomatoes and garlic to the pan. Stir in bacon, lemon juice, salt & pepper. Add your pasta to the whole thing and mix it up well. Sprinkle with some Parmesan when serving. You could even cook the pasta before you go camping and bring it with you all ready to add to this dish. This meal will be well received.
We hope all your camping meals are delicious and nutritious. You can find instructions for these recipes and others at 20 Favorite BLT Recipes
