Gourmet BLTA

I have met very few people who do not like BLT’s.

IMG_5358<– I taste good on everything!

(Even if you are vegan, and whatever soy or plant protein compound they throw together, smoke, and make taste oddly like smoked pig stomach really is delicious when stacked on some toasted bread with fresh, crisp lettuce and a plump, ripe slice of tomato.)

IMG_5356Throw on some avocado?  Now we’re talkin’.–>

But what happens when that simple BLTA is suddenly transformed into some blissful memory of a breezy summer day at the local bar and grill, where at a whim you can easily walk up, order the-best-sandwich-ever-made, and not have to worry about the constitution of wheat protein it may contain?  How can we possibly enhance what is naturally so good, so tasty, and so, well flawless and dare I say, surpass its greatness in flavor?

The answer, my friends, is not blowing in the wind.  It is most likely sitting in the freezer aisle of your health food store and it is called a gluten-free English Muffin from Food For Life and it is about to change the way you eat BLT…A’s:

IMG_5360<–Step 1: toast your multi-grain or brown rice gluten-free English Muffin until crisped golden brown.

IMG_5361<–Step 2: layer with a dash of olive oil and generously slice some avocado on top.

IMG_5362<–Step 3: it’s time for baaacccooonnnn!!!  Top with some nicely crisped pieces of bacon to your heart’s content.

IMG_5363<–Step 4: add a thin layer of sliced tomato.

IMG_5364<–Step 5: add some spice with.. lettuce?  Yes.  Add some fresh watercress leaves on top for your “L” (it should be “C”, really.)

IMG_5367<–To serve: drizzle with a little olive oil, sprinkle ‘cress and sliced tomatoes with sea salt and paprika, and sink your teeth in while that English Muffin is still steaming.

Food For Life Gluten-Free English Muffins are also egg, nut, soy, dairy, and corn-free.  Yahoo!!
