BLTs with Canned Tomatoes (Experiment)
OK—You guys are gonna laugh, especially those of you who have Great, nearly year-round access to Awesome Fresh Garden Maters.
I’m sick & tired of the Tomatoes they sell around here in our Markets, especially during our Long Winter.
They are tasteless, and not at all juicy.
When we grew our own, we had Great Tomatoes between Around July & November, but since we stopped growing Tomatoes, all we can get is the Lousy Store bought ones, except when we can find some at a Roadside Stand in the area.
So when I was Computer Shopping for our “Pick-up Groceries at Giant Market”, I ran into a section on “Canned Tomatoes”. They have Canned Tomato Sauce, Paste, Diced, and Whole Peeled Tomatoes.
That “Whole Peeled” got me thinking——HMMMMmmmmm, I wonder how they’d be in a BLT???
So I added a small 14.5 ounce can of Whole Peeled Tomatoes for 69¢ to our order, to give it a try.
They were much more juicy than store bought, and though they were not as good as a Fresh Garden Grown Tomatoes, they are definitely
good enough to do it again.
So the rest of this Thread is just frying the Bacon & Toasting the Bread, and adding the Miracle Whip to the BLTs.
That last plate was a leftover slice of Prime Rib on a Roll with Jeff’e BBQ Sauce and another BLT with some slices of “Canned Tomato”.
That’s about it—Thanks for stopping by.
BTW: I can fill 4 or 5 BLTs with these Canned Maters, and I put plenty in each one.
One 14.5 ounce can of "Whole Peeled Tomatoes" @ 69¢:
This is what they look like in the can (Nice & Juicy):
Miracle Whip, Lettuce, and Canned Maters:
And of course the Bacon:
Close 'em Up:
I like to cut them in half, like most Restaurants around here do:
