You’ve heard of a BLT sandwich. What could possibly make one heartier and even more delicious? How about adding an egg and a great-tasting spread? BELT sandwiches with sun-dried tomato spread are perfect for an easy meal!
Some say don’t mess with perfection, but once in a while it’s fun to try! Make Sunday dinner special with BELT sandwiches with sun-dried tomato spread. These sandwiches are simple to make and really are a treat! This recipe uses uncured Irish bacon, which comes in round slices and is a bit thicker than the standard strips. If you choose to use regular deli-style bacon, you’ll still be satisfied (use 3-4 slices per sandwich)! You can whip up the spread quickly, but you’ll still have a great-tasting meal if you use plain mayonnaise on your sandwich, instead.
