As a kid I was never really a fan of tomatoes and when it came to sandwiches that made the selection pretty limited. However, in time I have grown to love them, especially when it comes to in sandwiches. As a result, I am a sucker for a good BLT. I am a huge fan of bacon and I love the crispness that lettuce adds to any sandwich as well. Another thing that I love when it comes to sandwiches is a nice toasted, pressed bread outer layer, making the sandwich warm and adding that extra crunch and texture. If you're like me and love both BLTs and a perfectly toasted sandwich, then this one is for you.
It's a BLT but made even better with the addition of pesto and lots and lots of fresh mozzarella, all in between two pieces of perfectly toasted multigrain bread. So easy to make, so delicious, and still a classic!
When it comes to a BLT, your three main ingredients need to be prime and the best that you can find! For the bacon, I used apple wood spoked bacon to give it that extra depth and layer of flavor. I also made sure to cook the bacon so it's extra crisp and crunchy, which is the way I personally prefer it but whatever you like best is fine for this sandwich. For the lettuce, get some nice crisp green lettuce and you'll be good to go! Lastly, the tomatoes need to be the ripest tomatoes you can find, as they are one of the key ingredients when making this classic sandwich.
As for the remaining ingredients, the pesto recipe for this sandwich could not be easier to make, which is what we all want when whipping up a quick and easy, yet delicious sandwich. Once your pesto is made and ready to go, then it's just the fresh mozzarella left. I used a "log" of fresh mozzarella and just sliced it into thin slices for the sandwiches. Fresh mozzarella is the perfect cheese to add that extra layer of freshness to your sandwich.
After your sandwich is perfectly toasted, then you are good to go with this tasty lunch or dinner!
