    That was my first thought, but then, it is TOMATO ketchup.

    Ditch the bacon. Use Prosciutto, fried slightly crispy. Romain lettuce. Some good cheese, not that sliced American crap in the plastic condoms. Try different varieties of tomatoes also, there's plenty to choose from. Jewish rye or fresh baked sourdough is also a winner.

    If I feel the need to have a cheese pizza, I get a pizza crust, put on some sauce, sprinkle on some cheddar, some mozzarella, and some Parmesan. Walla - cheese pizza.

    Now, if I put some mushrooms or olives or sausage on it, it might taste better, but it is no longer a CHEESE pizza.

    In the same way, if you put anything besides bacon, lettuce or tomato on a BLT - cheese, avocado, onions, whatever - it might be a delicious sammich. But it is no longer a BLT.

    OMG! I had a real BLT today! We hardly ever have BLTs or even real bacon and my wife buys that "better for you" turkey bacon, :( eh. But today we had real restaurant bacon.

    MINE - lightly toasted whole grain white bread, Hellman's Light mayo on both.
    Bacon, romaine lettuce, tomato, cut in half and EAT. :D

    HERS - lightly toasted multi grain whole wheat, Kraft light mayo with olive oil.
    then the BLT.

    Oh heaven on a piece of bread....plus ate the leftover pieces.

    And more left in the freezer. :)

    I prefer a BLC since I'm not a huge fan of 'maters. I don't mind them, but try it with sliced/peeled cukes. Good layer of mayo and I prefer Wrights Pepper bacon (thick stuff). Bread choice for me is thick cut sourdough, toasted. Bib lettuce or iceberg for me.

    .....and a couple napkins!

    I do salt my tomatoes...freaks my wife out with the salty tasting bacon.
    But I do use Morton's Lite sodium salt.

    I like white bread, occasionally Jewish or American rye.

    It's considerably cheaper when you buy it from their retail outlet store in Wittenburg, WI. however, once you taste it and their peppered bacon, you would pay any price. Anything else is just, well..... bacon!

    I buy the Wright brand ends and pieces because I like the irregular slices and pieces.
