Summer Pleasures: BLT Salad
How good are bread cubes cooked in bacon fat?
I'll tell you.
They're pretty damn good.
Here is a great salad that I made the other night using delicious Jersey yellow and red tomatoes.
I used Romaine & Treviso mixed lettuces.
I sliced up Jersey Tomatoes, red and yellow.
I fried up chunks of hickory smoked bacon and set aside.
I used stale bread chunks and fried them in the bacon fat, then toasted them at the last minute to get a nice crunchy crust.
I made a dressing of some homemade basil pesto, mayo, white wine vinegar and olive oil.
Mix all of these yummy ingredients together and pour dressing over right before serving!
It was like eating a BLT sandwich!
How good is bread cooked in bacon fat? The answer lies within the knowledge that just about EVERYTHING tastes better cooked in bacon fat.
BTW, corn cake looked wonderful. I'm loving this corn season.
