So yesterday when I was cruising Facebook, a news feed from The Meat House came up about April being National BLT Month.
All I could think was, “YUM!” And then I thought about how I used to eat BLTs as a treat with my mom and sister when I was young. Delicious bacon, mayo, lettuce, tomato on toasted bread. I loved them!
But I can’t have a BLT now right? I mean I can’t eat bread…
I can make an equally delicious, if not more delicious, BLT WITHOUT the bread! So that food I loved as a kid, I can still eat!
(D)BLT – Duck, Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato
1/2 lbs Smoked Duck Breast from The Meat House
6 strips of Nitrite Free Bacon
4 leafs of lettuce from a head of iceberg lettuce
1/4 of an onion
4 slices of tomato
1 tbsp spicy brown mustard
1 tbsp Sir Kensington’s Ketchup from The Meat House
1 tbsp Olive oil
1 tbsp yellow mustard
Cook the bacon on medium heat in a skillet. Once cooked to your liking (I like mine crispy!), remove from skillet and cool.
While bacon is cooking, slice onions into thin half rings and slice up duck breast. Once bacon is done cooking, throw onions into the bacon grease to cook.
Remove onions and then cook the duck breast in the same skillet. Cook the duck until each side is nice and golden.
While the duck is cooking, cut a few slices of tomato and make the sauce.
To make the sauce, combine brown mustard, ketchup, olive oil and yellow mustard in a dish. Stir until combined.
Place cooked duck into lettuce bowls. I used two lettuce leaves for each plate, but more can be used. Then pile on sliced tomatoes, bacon and onions. On top add the ketchup/mustard sauce.
Can I just say, “DELICIOUS!?!”
Throughout the rest of this month, I will be posting more versions of the BLT that involve no bread whatsoever!
