I was at a restaurant the other day for lunch and saw something extremely interesting on the menu: Bacon Feta and Tomato sandwich (B.F.T). Now come one, I had to try it. I mean, I love bacon. I love sandwiches. I love love love Feta. Done deal. And so it was probably one of the best sandwiches I have ever tried. The bacon was smoky beyond belief, the bread was sourdough and toasted and the tomato honestly just got lost in the mix, but added a good palate cleanser. So of course, after having an almost orgasmic sandwich experience, I had to try one at home. I was pleasantly surprised. It’s easy to make. All you need to cook is the bacon. And since I love bacon, I piled it on high. It ended up being more of an open faced sandwich with lotsa bacon, but still worth it.
Beautiful right. I know. I suppose you could also put some Arugula on their for even more freshness. Oh and those are heirloom tomatoes from Trader Joe’s. Not sure how I lived this long without them in my life.
- Bread (sourdough, ciabatta)
- Feta Cheese (any hard white salty cheese will do; also the best feta cheese (and white cheese) comes from Turkish stores-like the one pictured)
- Arugula (optional)
- Cook the bacon. I don’t like mine to be super crunchy, makes it harder to eat.
- Toast the bread (i did not, but if I wasn’t so lazy, I would spread just a little bit of butter on it and toast it in a pan)
- Cut the tomato into circles
- Mayo the toast/bread; add tomato circles; then the bacon strips; and finally crumbles some feta on top (or a lot); and add arugula if desired.
- Now eat. All of it.
