A Slightly Lazy B.L.T.

You know the usual. There’s nothing going on and nowhere to go for absolutely ages, then in the space of a couple of weeks there are loads of things happening. Well that’s us at the moment. In the last couple of weeks we’ve had it all: school tours, Sheridan’s Food Festival, Bloom and Taste of Dublin, a tractor run AND a Christening so blog posts are becoming very thin on the ground of late.

Last Sunday, whilst feeling the effects of too many late nights (of the sober variety might I add…) I was up early as always with child #2. On a Sunday morning we’d nearly always have rashers for breakfast. It’s kind of tradition at this stage. So off I went, dragging myself to the fridge, opening it to find NO RASHERS. Now what was I going to do? I went off and made a cuppa then looked in the fridge again just to be sure. No flippin rashers. Did I want to get dressed and go to the shop and buy a packet of rashers? Not really – Sunday is a lazy day in my house and that would require way too much effort.

So I got up and went searching for something else when I remembered this:

Although how I managed to forget about it considering all the effort I went to to get it I don’t know. I read the label on the jar for suggestions, one of which being B.L.T. so that’s what I did and it tasted gorgeous. So nice infact that I think I’m going to have one now. Will you join me?

What You Need:

  • 2 flour tortillas
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 – 2 leaves lettuce
  • Ed Hick’s Bacon Jam – use as much or as little as you like! 

What To Do:

  1. Heat a drizzle of oil on a frying pan and throw your tomatoes on to cook for a couple of minutes.
  2. Warm each of the tortilla for less than a minute on each side (careful they don’t burn!)
  3. Spread each wrap with bacon jam
  4. Sprinkle with the tomato and cover with lettuce
  5. Place the second tortilla on top and press down lightly

Cut into quarters and enjoy with a nice cuppa!

      I might have forgotten to mention that on top of having no rashers, there was no bread in the house either!

    Ah – if only we could count the many inventive ways we will use the bacon jam.
    I hear you on late nights and lazy Sundays. I never want to go anywhere that requires me getting dressed!
    The BLT looks divine.

    I was reading this post feeling slightly uncomfortable with the idea of a jar of “bacon jam” until I saw the photo of the finished product. And now I’m wondering where on earth I can get my hands on some tortillas and bacon jam at almost 10pm on a Sunday night because that looks delicious! I want!
