Some may say there is really no way to go wrong with a BLT. Bacon. Lettuce. Tomato. Bread. What could be bad.
However, the perfect BLT takes precise quantity and quality, and I found that today at Pickles Deli in St. Louis.
Pickle’s is generally known for a great sandy, and a great variety of sides and chips. Today for lunch, I expanded past my usual Famous Veggie, for the BLT.
As with all of their sandwiches, I picked my bread from an expansive list. I went with old reliable, marble rye. I also decided to add some cheddar cheese, because, duh – cheese.
The biggest issue one can have with a BLT is soggy-ness.
Another key thing with this BLT delight was the quantity of mayo. Too much – you end up with a soggy mess. Too little and you end up with a sandwich as dry as the Sahara. Pickle’s has the perfect amount of shmear.
All and all, the perfect pairing for a Friday lunch date…and any lunch for that matter. Mmmhmm bacon.
