Creative Cooking Crew: April 13 B.L.T. Round-Up

In April, the Creative Cooking Crew...

Took on our first Sandwich Challenge.  Our theme was to create a unique sandwich built around three ingredients that started with the initials - B, L, T.

Now, Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato is the classic, but here we really pushed some limits. I hope you will find new inspiration from what these inventive cooks have dreamed up.

This fine group of cooks never cease to amaze.  I applaud each and every one for their hard work, tenacity and willingness to think outside of the conventional box in the kitchen.

  1. It's a whole new world of BLTs!! Great round up! A lot of fun entries :)

  2. Nice job on the round-up, Laz, and a big applause to all for a really great re-interpretation of BLT. You're all rock stars!

  3. I really enjoyed this challenge and now we have so many different takes. Great round up Lazaro snd thank you.

  4. Once again, this Crew did an amazing job. Congrats everyone!

  5. God, ,it's almost lunch time for me. I'll have to try one of each, really amazing round-up!

  6. Gosh, what a compilation of interesting ingredients!

    Thanks L & J, once again, for hosting! Super-fun.

  7. No way could I pick a favorite - I really truly would love to chow down on all of these! Great job, crew!

  8. Next time I will read the challenge more carefully... had to stretch to make mine BLT.
    Great work everyone...

  9. This was a real man food challenge, but I ate my whole sandwich. Everyone did great, considering this was a real challenge. Who knew so few foods start with the letter l or t that make sense inside of bread. Looking forward to the picnic.

  10. I am constantly amazed at the creativity of this group, not only in putting together interesting ingredients but the interpretations and the influences from each of our backgrounds. Fascinating to learn so much! Who knew you could make bread from tapioca? Or what bravas sauce is? Or just that something like lingonberries, brie and turkey could combine for a great sandwich?! Thanks so much for hosting Laz and Joan and for coming up with great ideas and challenges.

  11. definitely a post that will make you hungry! thanks for hosting Laz :)

  12. Looks wonderful...and so well presented.

  13. Thanks for hosting last month challenge, Lazaro!Wonderful list!

  14. This is a nice post in an interesting line of content.Thanks for sharing this article, great way of bring such topic to discussion.
