The Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato (BLT) sandwich is one of the most classic and popular sandwiches in American history. Bacon, lettuce and tomato on toast are ingredients that have always complimented each other better than any other sandwich in existence. The salty bacon serves as the core of the sandwich, providing a crispy contrast of smokey and salty flavors while lettuce adds color, crunch and freshness; a perfect compliment to a slice of ruby-red, ripe tomatoes providing the robust finish to this perfectly crafted American beauty.
April is officially National BLT Month and we’re honoring this classic sandwich with some of our favorite spots in Austin.

Lustre Pearl East’s BEAT (Bacon, Egg, Arugula and Tomato) with herb aioli on whole wheat bread from Moonlight Bakery is the perfect starter to your Austin BLT conquest. The arugula is a welcome spin on this classic
Jack Allen’s Kitchen serves up a couple of kick-ass BLT Sliders as a stray from the classic BLT norm, with grilled pork belly, micro greens, fried green tomatoes, pimiento cheese and JAK’s slaw.

Noble Sandwich has become my all-time favorite sandwich joint, and if they continue to blow me away with sandwiches like the PBLT, I might have to sleep with it. The sandwich I mean. Don’t judge me!

For a restaurant with it’s name-sake as it’s primary menu item, their BLT should obviously be one of the most exceptional in Austin and one of our favorites. The Broken Yolk BLT is stacked with bibb lettuce, tomatoes, maple-cured bacon, and over easy eggs.

The winner for the most food-porn worthy BLT, is undoubtedly Jack and Ginger’s Cheddar Waffle BLT. What could be more savory and sinful than cheddar mixed in to the waffle itself – stacked with thick slices of bacon, an over-easy egg, lettuce and tomatoes?
