Grown-Up BLT

Grown-Up BLT

Sometimes something is so gosh darn good that the only thing that comes to mind is "YUM!". This is one such case. I mean not to brag or anything, but do you see this BLT?! Do you see it?! The amount of deliciousness piled onto that fluffy bread is something that I can't even comprehend. 

BLTs bring back memories of summer picnics in the park and simple summer suppers on my Grandmother's back porch. They've always been a favorite of mine. While nothing will ever beat a classic, I couldn't resist the chance to fancy up this childhood favorite with swiss chard in place of lettuce, sun-dried tomatoes in place of regular tomatoes, and place of bacon (because obviously bacon is something that should never be replaced). So here's to you "new-adult BLT", you are welcome in my kitchen and on my plate anytime you want!




  • Bread
  • Avocado (very ripe)
  • Goat Cheese (slightly softened)
  • Sun-dried Tomatoes
  • Bacon, cooked until crispy
  • Swiss Chard
  • Eggs (cooked over-easy)


  1. Spread one half of an avocado onto a piece of bread. Next spread on the goat cheese (I used about 1 tablespoon). Top that with about 2 tablespoons of sun-dried tomatoes. After that layer on a piece of swiss chard and a couple of slices of bacon. Finish of your BLT with an egg. Serve immediately.
