“I first tasted this delicious combination in a local bistro,” recalls Robyn Larabee. She's been making the hefty sandwiches ever since at home in Lucknow, Onatario. It's a tasty way to use up those last, languishing garden tomatoes! TIP: Robyn says her BLTs are especially good served on rustic, homemade whole wheat-and-honey bread.

"The flavor blend was very good (we left off the cheese), but not better than a regular BLT. If you think the fat is too much, use fat-free mayo, turkey bacon that is baked on a rack and not fried, and leave out the cheese."

"23 grams of fat is too much for me- but it sounds so delicious.
