The Champagne of BLTs.

I know it seems like I'm hopping on the bacon bandwagon, but I seriously LOVE bacon. And it's not just because Jim Gaffigan does or because there are bacon bandaids or a website celebrating bacon culture from around the world...although these are all very compelling reasons to love bacon.

I especially love BLTs. So much so that I recently had BLTs for dinner for a whole week. The only reason I stopped was because I ran out of bacon. (I have a tendency to eat the same thing for a week at a time other standby is a caprese salad, my all-time favorite summertime salad). So, imagine my euphoria when I stumbled across a recipe on that combines two of my "never fail to satisfy" meals into one tasty sandwich.

It's pancetta (fancy bacon), burrata (only one of the best cheeses ever), tomatoes, basil, olive oil, sea salt...are you drooling yet? I will be buying the ingredients the next time I go to the grocery store. In the meantime, I'm trying to will one of these to my desk right now.

For other bacon recipes, check out the Bacon Slideshow.

Mmmmmm. Bacon.
