this is definately the correct answer! if you could make a BLT replacing the bread, lettuce and toamto with bacon it would be the perfect sandwich

BLT:

Bacon
Lotsa bacon
Tonsa bacon


So I would say its either the bacon and bacon, or maybe the bacon and bacon.

First of all, don't waste your time with lettuce. Use cucumbers for a BCT.

The way you make a BCT is with bacon, home-grown tomatoes (otherwise stop and just eat the bacon), mayo, cucumbers, kosher salt, and toasted bread.

To answer the question directly, the two most important ingredients are bacon and home-grown (equivalent) tomatoes. Another important ingredient is added kosher salt sprinkled on the tomatoes to bring out the flavor.

Kosher salt? Yes, so you don't get that metallic iodine flavor on the tomatoes that you sprinkle it on. B-b-but, shouldn't the bacon and mayo already provide enough salt? Not with the cucumbers and tomatoes. You need that extra bit to bring out the flavor of the tomatoes. Just a sprinkling. The cucumbers will ensure that it isn't too salty.

Home-grown tomatoes (or flavor-equivalent if you can find them) are a must. Otherwise you're just adding flavorless mush to your sandwich, and you should just omit it altogether and just have a bacon sandwich. Tomatoes have natural amounts of glutamate in it, which also enhances the flavor in conjunction with the bacon.

If I'm reading all the responses correctly, the TWO most important ingredients are BACON and ANYTHING!

Weighing in, for me it's bacon and lettuce (I'm not big on tomatoes). I'm not big on cucumbers either, I'll stick with lettuce and they can fuck themselves and go find their own sandwich. Of course, there's something to be said about really good bread, maybe it's bacon and choice of bread.

My favorite food truck serves up an interesting take, the LGBT. Basically it's a BLT with goat cheese sprinkled on. Damn good shit. I'm not that into goat cheese, but just a little bit adds a nice touch.

This was actually a question on a radio show contest. The official answer is, drum roll,,, bacon, and, and, OK, here it is... ...mayonnaise.

I have to agree with this. You cannot put enough bacon on a BLT.

The two most important ingredients in a BLT is what you ingested prior to the BLT that improves your appetite (munchies) and if you can get someone else to make it for you....
