Going To Hell in a BLT and Loving It


Besides Insalata Caprese another good way to honor an excellent tomato is the BLT sandwich. On Thursday I picked up the nicest, biggest Brandywine heirloom tomato from the Teaneck Farmers Market. Tonight, just before heading out to Rascal’s Comedy Club in Montclair, we made ourselves a big BLT (with bacon we bought at Kocher’s) on two big thick slices of toasted challah bread.

Okay, maybe I’m going to hell for desecrating the sacred Chally. But I mean, how different really is a challah from something like brioche? Challah just begs for a rich and salty meat, with a juicy tomato, lettuce and mayonnaise. Why should brioche get all the love? I say liberate the challah from the French Toast and the shabbas motze, and use it for your favorite club sandwich. Because deep down a challah just wants to party on Friday night.

    I realize this post is a couple of years old, but I just stumbled on it after posting my own version of a BLT, and as a fellow Jersian, just wanted to say: That’s a great damned looking BLT! Cheers!

    Oh my goodness! This sandwich is holy to me because it’s overall texture screams crunchy and crisp! I would hate to ruin the overall crunch of this sandwich with a watery topping like ketchup! I bought this new condiment called Onion Crunch that I would love to try out as a topping on this sandwich! It is crunchy and crisp just like the bacon and bread! I think they will go very well together! This is the new condiment: http://www.onioncrunch.com
