Gourmet BLT Sandwich

Gourmet BLT Sandwich Recipe and Creamy Siracha Sauce -

Creamy Sriracha Sauce Recipe - www.cobornsblog.comBLT Sandwiches have always been one of my family’s favorites. They seem to hit the spot day or night. Now that the kids are older I have decided to kick this family favorite up a notch with trendy ingredients like, thick cut Four Brothers Bacon, fresh avocadoes and Sriracha sauce!

The Brits lay claim to the very first sandwich, created as a royal meal for the busy Sir John Montague. This eighteenth-century Englishman, a.k.a. the fourth Earl of Sandwich, was a skilled gambler. Reluctant to miss even a few minutes away from his game, he instructed his servant to place meat between two pieces of bread so that he could eat with one hand and take bits between bets.

At my house it takes two hands to hold one of my family favorites and as the kids taste buds become more curious our sandwiches will continue to change and grow into are endless imaginations.
