Enjoy a classic American-inspired BLT sandwich with juicy flavour and crispy textures. What you read is what you get! The bacon-lettuce-tomato sandwich combines simple flavours paired wonderfully between two slices of toasted sourdough bread. To put a new spin on the iconic sandwich, our bread is spread with cream cheese and dijonnaise that provide both flavour and moisture. Enjoy this humble icon for lunch, dinner, or on the go!


  • Put the bacon slices on a cold pan and fry them – at first 2 minutes over high heat and then over medium heat until golden and crispy. Let the bacon drain on a piece of paper towel.
  • Spread 2 slices of bread with cream cheese and 2 with dijonnaise.
  • Top them with lettuce leaves, tomato, salt, pepper, chervil, and fried bacon slices.
  • Press the sandwich together and serve.

Bacon takes centre stage, so make sure to use good quality bacon that is neither too thin nor too thick. If you want to forego the clean-up and bacon splatter, cook the bacon in the oven at about 200˚C for 15-20 minutes until it is crispy.


Cut the tomatoes in thick slices to get more flavour and a softer bite in the middle of the crunchy salad, bacon, and bread.


No one wants a bland and soggy sandwich. Assemble the BLT sandwich right before serving to keep the bread from getting wet. If you are making it for work or school lunch, package the elements for the BLT separately from the bread and add them when you are ready to enjoy the sandwich. You can use any variety of tomatoes that are in season if they are sweet and ripe.

BLT sandwich – the ultimate classic

Treat yourself to an American classic with our no-frills BLT sandwich recipe. It is easy to make, takes no time at all and most importantly only requires very few fresh ingredients. BLT is the abbreviation for bacon, lettuce, and tomato. The magical trio is layered between two slices of toasted sourdough bread along with a few extra elements that contribute to the rich and tasty flavour of the sandwich. Relish the sandwich on its own or with delicious side dishes.

Bacon, lettuce, and tomato

Classic BLT sandwich ingredients consist of a combination of 3 main ingredients. The lettuce provides a crunchy and juicy texture with a mild, sweet flavour and a subtle bitterness that complements the sweet and tart tomatoes. To finish off the masterpiece, the lettuce and tomatoes are topped with crispy fried bacon for a salty, savoury taste.

It is often assembled with mayonnaise spread on the bread to add moisture and offset the saltiness from the bacon. For our version of the classic, we use cream cheese with a delicately sweet taste with a pleasant tang and dijonnaise, a combination of mayonnaise and Dijon mustard. The mustard-mayo combo combines the best of both worlds with a rich and creamy texture from the mayo and a spicy kick from the mustard. It is the perfect sandwich to satisfy your hunger!

Shake up a classic

The tasty BLT sandwich allows for delicious add-ons and comes in many variations. Add some new flavour with sliced avocados on top of the bacon. The avocados bring a creamy, almost buttery texture and a slight sweetness that creates a lovely contrast to the salty, crispy bacon. If you cannot resist spicy flavours, add some warm hot peppers to increase the taste of the sandwich. For a crunchier texture, add a few sprouts to the mix. Sprouts have a mild and nutty flavour that pairs beautifully with the other elements.

You can also kick off your morning with a BLT sandwich with fried eggs. A rich and slightly runny yolk is an excellent choice to add on top of the bacon. It makes for a delectable breakfast meal pressed between vegetables and sourdough bread.

A few slices of roasted chicken breast fillet will make a delicious pairing for the salty and crispy baking, adding a nice touch to the BLT sandwich.
