Description

Next time you have some hungry, big hands to feed, here’s a hearty version of a good old-fashioned Bacon, Lettuce & Tomato Sandwich for the big hands people in your life.

Ingredients

  • 16 ounces, weight Roll Of Pillsbury Grands Refrigerated Biscuits
  • 1 pound Thick Cut Bacon (Peppered Flavor Optional)
  • 2 whole Large Ripe Tomatoes, Sliced
  • 1 head Lettuce
  • 4 Tablespoons Mayonnaise

Preparation

Here’s where we bump up a regular BLT, to the hearty version that turns a regular sandwich into a meal for Big Hands.

I used a roll of refrigerated Grand Biscuits (Whole Wheat Reduced Fat) but please by all means, feel free to use the regular Home-style Grands.

But in all honesty, I think the big hands person in my life would have preferred that I used the regular kind as opposed to the Whole Wheat Low Fat. He didn’t actually say this, bless his heart, I just had that wifey feeling.

But since I was trying to be somewhat healthy (if that’s at all possible when using thick cut bacon) I decided to go with whole wheat. Trust me, his big hands ate it anyway, whole wheat and all.

So feel free to use the regular buttermilk home-style instead.

Get the regular BLT players all set up and ready. You know, the mayo, the lettuce, and of course the star of the show, your thick cut bacon.

I sometimes use the pepper thick cut bacon for a bit more flavor, but regular is good too.

I also put my bacon in the oven at 350F to avoid the stove-top splatter. But however you cook your bacon, get it all ready and pre-cooked to crispy.

After you have all the players ready to go, turn the oven to 350F and get ready to make the biscuit bread.

Open the roll and separate out the 8 biscuits.

Take a biscuit and roll it out flat, until it becomes 4 to 5 inches in diameter. Do this to all 8 biscuits.

Pop your flattened biscuits onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350F until golden brown. About 18 minutes or so – or according to package instructions.

When they come out of the oven, they’re perfect in every way.

Each biscuit will have a somewhat puffed up side (which will be the pretty top side of the sandwich) and underneath they will have a flat side, perfect for stacking purposes.

Ok, now it’s time to start stacking things on top of the flat side of half of the biscuits.

Schmear some mayo onto the flat side of the biscuit (if that’s your schmear of choice). Then a couple of thick slices of tomatoes. And of course, as many bacon slices as your heart desires. A couple slices of crisp cool lettuce.

And VOILA!

Here you have it.

A BIG HANDS BLT.
