A Hobo’s BLT

Now just put  the two layers together

Now just put the two layers together

With all the tomatoes from the garden I have had time to contemplate some deep philosophical issues, such as how to improve the classic BLT.

The answer: Add a fried egg in between. This may require a fork and knife to eat.

Hobo Style BLT

  • 2 slices sandwich bread (whole wheat or rye for the best results) toasted
  • 1 hobo egg
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 tomato sliced thick
  • 1 large leaf lettuce
  • Mayo

Start with a layer of mayo on a slice of toasted bread. Then 2 slices bacon. Then half the tomato. Then the hobo egg. Then another layer of bacon. Then the rest of the tomato. Then the lettuce. Then top with final piece of bread.

    Oh what I would give for a bite of this right this minute! Looks perfect.

  2. Greg, how do you come up with these things? That is brilliant! The only thing I would add is cheese.

    I am drinking my morning tea now, it would be so nice to eat them too 🙂 Thank you dear Rufus, have a nice day, love, nia

    Aww, see I’m of the opinion a BLT can’t be beater anyway – I love them!

  5. Grannymar says:

    With that for breakfast…… there would be no need for lunch! I sometimes cook the tomato, it adds an extra sweetness.

  6. Delicious and big 🙂

    Just got up and boy does that look tasty. Nicely done with an old classic.

  9. egg me on says:

    Dude. Freakin’ brilliant. I’d wrap one of these up in a bindle in a heartbeat.

  10. This BLT makes me want to be a Hobo if they eat this well? Yummy.

  11. Okay, now I have to go out and get some bacon so I can have one of these tonight!

    Hobo egg? Ha! I love it (had to follow your link to find out why it’s called a ‘hobo egg’. I’m still clueless!). You definitely upped the ante with this BLT. Looks amazing. I think you should call it a ‘BELT’ (bacon, egg… ah, you get it). I envy your glut of garden fresh tomatoes. We don’t have a ‘garden’ but I’m trying to grow my own herbs on our balcony. Nothing like fresh produce you’ve grown yourself!

    I’m in the process of making BLTs for dinner. It’s Summer and there are few better ways to enjoy fresh-picked tomatoes. I’ll be adding an egg tonight. Thanks, Greg!
