Ultimate BLT with ButcherBox

Ultimate BLT with ButcherBox

A BLT may call for a humble ingredients list, but that means what you pick makes all the difference. Really freaking good bacon (shoutout to our homies at ButcherBox), the ripest and juiciest L-T's you can find, and a spread of simple but super tasty homemade lemon herb mayo bring this classic to the next level!

Sourdough bread 

Heirloom tomatoes

ButcherBox Applewood Smoked Uncured Bacon


Lemon herb mayo* 


Salt & pepper 


*To make the lemon herb may: in a blender, combine ⅓ cup mayo with a handful of fresh herbs such as basil, tarragon, parsley, chives and the juice of ½ a lemon. Adjust seasonings to taste.


Active Time: 10 minutes

Full Time: 25 minutes

Serves 1

Slice and toast sourdough bread with some Drizzle.


Heat a pan and add several strips of ButcherBox Applewood Smoked Uncured Bacon. With heat on medium, flip the bacon every so often until desired crispness is reached, about 5-7 minutes. Transfer cooked bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.


Next: assemble sandwich! Spread lemon herb mayo on one slice of toasted bread. Layer on lettuce, then top with slices of heirloom tomato. Season the tomato with a generous DRIZZLE, sea salt, and cracked black pepper.


On the other slice of bread, add half an avocado and season with lemon juice. Top the avocado with as many slices of crisp bacon that can fit. Smash the sandwich together, slice down the middle and enjoy!
