I have my friend Keith to thank for this idea. He is well known (at least within our circle of friends) as a “baconnoisseur” so when I was brainstorming recipes with him, he suggested this concept. The no-bread BLT: so just what the name suggests – bacon, lettuce and tomato. But NO bread. This makes it VERY low carb!
But how to hold everything together? The answer was a bacon weave. So here’s how it’s done!
Cut slices of bacon in half. Place three slices next to each other in a vertical row on a baking tray lined with a silicone mat.
Flap the top of the outer two slices down, then place a slice of bacon horizontally across them.
Flap the bacon back up, then flap up the central slice, and place another horizontal slice in the middle. Then add the final horizontal slice at the bottom by flapping up the two outer slices. I assure you that this is actually super easy! In less than a minute – you have one bread-sized bacon weave!
Repeat this procedure three more times.
Cook under the broiler until the bacon starts to go crispy. Remove the rack, and flip over the bacon. Return to the broiler if necessary – but you won’t need the rack this time!
Transfer the bacon weaves to kitchen paper to drain the excess fat.
Add sliced tomato and crunchy romaine lettuce, and your BLT is ready to go!Introducing the amazing no bread #BLT ! #low carb #bacon #baconweave Click To Tweet
Obviously you can add mayo to your no bread BLT if you like: I’ve tried it with and without and I like it both ways!
