I like the Aussie BLAT version sometimes too..   Some  ripe HASS Avocado added to a good  BLT  is serious good eats.

BLT's are great, especially in the summertime. They're like a classic American burger with a bunch of toppings.....minus the burger :mope:

You are really missing out then. I don't think I've even been out and had a good one. In the states this is a sandwich most of us are raised on. With garden tomatoes, bacon fresh from the pan, and that perfect toasting of white bread. A good amount of mayo with a little s&p sprinkling... and crisp iceberg lettuce (my gram would pick dandelion greens for hers). An American classic, but usually only when made at home.

 

     If you ever get a chance try nasturtium greens. Like dandelions, they have a bit more bitterness than plain ol' lettuce - which goes really well with mayo, sweet tomatoes and fatty, salty bacon. But they also have that sharp peppery flavor that can really make a BLT shine. The flowers taste great too.

Sounds good! I've always liked watercress for that reason as well. Funnily enough had that as a kid too, used to be a place near the water where we'd pick it.


:cheers:

I knew about the flowers, I didn't realize the greens are edible! I've been wanting to plant some for quite a while. Good to know!

After seeing your picture pop up here a few times, it's funny picturing a little version of you running around picking watercress, haha! I picture some six year old metalhead, wearing a Motörhead t-shirt with the sleeves cut off or something, carrying a wicker basket :seeya:

(Hammer pants too, maybe?! :rofl: )

     Definitely do! They are such a useful plant. Besides being tasty, they're loaded with vitamin C, they require almost no nutrients or water, they attract pollenators and they support resident populations of beneficial insects like ladybugs and hoverflies. And since there are trailing and dwarf varieties, they can fit in almost any size empty space in a garden.
