This Turkey BLT Recipe from Kentucky Will Make You Really Freaking Hungry
I absolutely love BLT sandwiches. Bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches are my jam. I've ordered them from a wide variety and range of restaurants- from Big Dipper in Owensboro to Bar Bacon in New York City. If I am in any kind of deli, there's a 95% chance that I am going to order a BLT sandwich. It's my absolute favorite sandwich and, yes, actually surpasses the grilled cheese for that title.
