BLT Sandwiches with Homemade Basil Mayonnaise

As many of you already know, I love bacon. Most people I know love bacon*. When my friend Diana was in town visiting from San Francisco, we decided to make t-shirts that declared our love for bacon. Here’s a picture of Diana wearing one of our awesome t-shirts:

And now that we’ve reached the time of year when tomatoes actually taste like tomatoes, BLT sandwiches are at their peak. With the addition of homemade basil mayonnaise – which is really simple and easy to make if you have a food processor – your standard BLT gets kicked up a notch, as Emeril would say.

*Even vegetarians can enjoy bacon and BLTs by substituting “facon” (fake, soy-based bacon) for the real deal.

Look, there I am, loving the bacon (and the bacon shirts). We should seriously sell those.

I am totally making BLTs tomorrow!

If u do start mass producing the bacon t-shirt please ensure that they can be shipped to Aussie Land coz I want one! However, generously layered fresh belly pork from a healthy pasture-fed sow or castrated male pig (brace yourself guys!) before it becomes bacon is really my first true love. Oh, fatty belly pork makes me soar. Please check out my newly established blog http://eatmem.blogspot.com
