“bacon in every bite” woven blt sandwich

Are you ready to experience a bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich the way it should always be experienced? Lucky you to have found this post! Seriously, this is the best BLT I’ve ever had because the bacon is thick and woven together into a perfect square so you get bacon in every bite! I included step by step photos with brief instructions for each. I promise it’s not as complicated as it sounds.

For every woven BLT sandwich you make, you’ll need:

3 slices of thick cut bacon, cut in half

3 thick slices of perfectly ripe tomato

iceberg lettuce

2 pieces of soft white bread


freshly ground black pepper

~ preheat oven to 400 degrees F. ~

Unwrap the bacon and cut it in half:


Cover a large baking sheet with cooking parchment and lay 3 of the half slices in a row as shown:


Fold the middle piece back and place a piece of bacon vertically over the slices that are still flat:


Fold top and bottom slices to the left


Place another slice of bacon over top of middle slice vertically, lay top and bottom pieces flat again and fold middle slice to the left


Place the last slice of bacon over the top and bottom slices, vertically. Fold middle slice to the right, and voila! A woven bacon square!


Repeat this process, making as many woven bacon squares as you want sandwiches.


Weigh the squares down with baking racks. Allow them to lay right on the bacon.


Place in preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until very crispy. Blot with paper towels and make your woven BLT sandwiches!


Enjoy bacon in every bite!

    No “bunny soft ” bread for me especially white but put this on fresh baked whole grain bread and it is a super GO. It is fantastic………

    Ya know, I’ve seen the “bacon weave” before, but your presentation really knocks it out of the park! I’m suddenly craving these beautiful BLT’s like crazy… My husband is going to LOVE the bunny-soft bread variation. Thanks for providing tonight’s dinner inspiration, Melissa!

    You forgot the slice of American cheese…I never had a BLT until a friend brought them to work from a gas/service station…they were scrumptious and had a slice of cheese on them…um, um, good!

    I Like the idea of “”Woven Bacon”. I am tired of bacon falling off the sandwich while I am eating it.

    I love the idea of the bacon! I sometimes put a avocado on my sandwich or mix some in with the mayo

    Melissa this is a fabulous idea. In a coup,e of days I’m having a blt luncheon. I would like to do as much in advance as I can. Do you think I could cook the beacon a couple of days before serving ? I thought I would put the beacon squares between paper towels and refrigerate. What do you think?

      Hi Rolanda! 🙂 I think if you wanted to weave the bacon in advance, that would be a great idea, and then just bake the bacon right before serving. Is that what you meant? I wouldn’t bake the bacon too far ahead of time. Hope that helps! Enjoy. xo and have a beautiful luncheon!
