Lovely Cooksister recipe for Luxury BLT (bacon, lettuce and tomato) sandwiches – perfect for a quick weekend lunch.
2 sunflower seed rolls (or similar ciabatta-like rolls)
Cream cheese (I used Philadelphia with garlic and herbs)
4 rashers good quality streaky bacon
2 cos lettuce leaves, shredded
6 sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil
a few basil leaves
Split each roll lengthways. Spread each half with a generous helping of cream cheese and sprinkle with black pepper.
Shred the lettuce and place on one half of each roll. Cut the sun-dried tomatoes into smaller pieces and arrange on the other half of each roll.
Heat a non-stick pan over medium high heat. Place the bacon slices in the pan and fry until beginning to crisp, then turn over and fry othe side until beginning to crisp.
Drain on a paper towel, then lay two strips on each roll and top with a few basil leaves. Serve immediately.
