Pete and I were having a conversation about a bacon weave. I’m not sure why, honestly, but it was a pretty long discussion. A bacon weave is when you weave together three pieces of bacon to make it fit perfectly onto a sandwich. Usually, I just cook the bacon and I don’t pay much attention to the edges hanging off the bread. I mean, that’s basically just extra bacon, right?
But we were having this huge discussion about a bacon weave, and just happened to have bacon in the fridge, so I decided that I was going to make a bacon weave. I couldn’t just eat bacon on bread, of course, so I had to make a BST (bacon spinach and tomato sandwich). It’s a BLT, but with spinach. I just feel like it’s a little healthier that way … although if you’re eating three slices of bacon, you’re probably not too concerned about being healthier.
The entire recipe is below. If you want to just see the bacon weave (and pin that image), it’s at the bottom of the post.
Bacon Spinach And Tomato Sandwich
What You’ll Need:
- Two slices of bread
- Three sliced of bacon
- Fresh spinach
What You’ll Do:
Slice three pieces of bacon in half.
Lay three slices down, one next to the other. Use the other three slices to weave in and out. The top and bottom will be the same pattern and the middle one will be the opposite.
Place this on a cast iron griddle.
Press with the bacon iron and leave until it’s cooked.
Set it on a paper towel on top of a plate to cool.
Spread mayo on two slices of bread.
Place the bacon weave on one side of the bread (look how it’s a perfect fit!).
Top with spinach and tomato. Close the sandwich. Enjoy.
