Ingredients

  • 4 slices bread
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, or 2 small tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsps mayonnaise
  • 8-12 leaves spinach

Directions


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.

Happy eating.

    Ok,I think I will love this sandwich but have to wait for my shopper to get me the ingredients since we are on dayfour of self isolation, too. But, here is a story for you favorite niece Emily! This sandwich reminded me of something your Métis, great grandfather Joseph used to make for me for breakfast 65 years ago when I had sleepovers with him. He would fry bacon and then put the bread in the fat to fry(didn’t drain any) and make our sandwich out of the fry bread and bacon. It was delicious! Love Aunty Bev

      Wow auntie. Thank you so much for sharing! Not sure if it’s from the high emotions because of everything going on, being in isolation, or coming down off the stress of getting home, but this story actually made me cry a little, happy tears. It made me so grateful for the family we have, the history we share, and the connection we all have, despite the physical separation. I’m so glad you and Uncle made it home safe! I hope isolation passes smoothly for you both; I’m so glad I could make a connection with my great grandfather, completely unknowing!
