BLT Bites

To me, the perfect summer sandwich is the BLT. Fresh tomatoes hot off the vine, Crispy lettuce, and smokey bacon come together between two pieces of fresh toasted bread. These appetizers are really fresh and taste just like a BLT. I bet you can't eat just one!

BLT Bites 

2 heads of butter lettuce
2 Tomatoes, diced
1/4 pound of crumbled bacon, divided

Seperate the smaller inside lettuce leaves from the larger outside leaves. These will serve as our cups. 

Roughly chop the outer leaves and place in a small bowl. Add mayo a table spoon at a time until the mixture is creamy. Add half of the bacon, season with salt and pepper, and stir to combine.

To Assemble: Place the small leaves on a platter, fill with lettuce mixture and top with diced tomatoes, the rest of the bacon, and croutons. Serve immediately.

Happy Cooking!
