Sloppy Joe BLT’s

Not the traditional sloppy joe, this colorful sandwich combines bacon, salad greens, tomato and cheese with a mayonnaise dressing. "My dad made these somewhat-messy but tasty BLT's often when we were kids," says Debbie Blackburn, New Cumberland, Pennsylvania.

    My kids are not big fans of the traditional BLT's and they were leary of trying this recipe but they went ahead and tried it and now they want it all the time. I often use croiscant bread when I make them and I also add avocados and a smidge of 1000 island dressing.
