- 4 slices bread
- 8 slices bacon
- 8 cherry tomatoes, or 2 small tomatoes
- 2 Tbsps mayonnaise
- 8-12 leaves spinach
Cook bacon in a large pan to desired level of doneness. Set aside and drain most bacon fat. Keep some fat in pan and toast the bread in the pan. Put mayo on two of the slices. Place spinach and tomatoes. Drizzle with honey. Top with other slice of bread. Serve.
And now for the details…
Okay, so yes, this a pretty simple recipe. But… well… it was delicious. And… I have limited resources to work with 😛
We’re into day four of quarantine, and day three of recipe challenge. Today’s recipe is nice and easy. Rather than a BLT, because… well… I had no lettuce… I decided instead to go off-script and go for a BST, since I did have spinach. And then I thought… can I do something even more different? And realized I had some liquid honey in the pantry that would be a great complement the tartness of the tomatoes and the saltiness of the bacon.
And so, the BSTH was born!
I don’t know that I would recommend urban dictionary-ing BSTH… it is not the “theme” I am going for here… *eep*
Let’s get to cooking.
To start out, we will be cooking out bacon. Cook in a large pan on medium-high heat, and transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.
Drain most of the bacon fat from the pan, but leave some. This is what we are going to use to toast our bread. On medium high heat, smear the the bread pieces into the bacon fat so they soak up some of it up, then let them toast on both sides to a nice golden brown.
Remove the bread pieces to plates. Spread the mayo on one piece of the bread. We will use the mayo as glue to stick the spinach in place. Place several of the leaves of spinach on the bread.
Add the bacon, and then place the tomato pieces on top. I did not have regular tomatoes here. Again, quarantine mystery box was my source, and there were only cherry tomatoes available to me. There were a few bigger ones that I sliced to be able to fit the sandwich, and they worked really well, actually, but small to medium tomatoes would probably fit a little better.
To finish this sandwich off, drizzle the liquid honey over your ingredients, and then top with the other slice of bread.
I served this sandwich with some delicious chips that I’d procured from Urban Grub a few weeks ago, before we were travelling, that were delicious with this meal. The flavour I had purchased was “Mmmm, tastes like roast chicken” and they were indeed pretty “Mmmm”-worthy.
Serve your sandwich with your side of choice, or on its own, and enjoy.
