Recipe: A Perfect Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato SandwichJBF Editors
August 04, 2014
August is National Sandwich Month, so our programming here at Delights & Prejudices is switching to all things sammy.
To kick off our theme, we're reaching into the JBF Book Award archive for a sandwich from 2009's Cookbook of the Year, Fat, by chef, food stylist, and fat advocate Jennifer McLagan. Supported by common sense and science, McLagan comes to the defense of an often maligned ingredient, arguing that fat is an indispensable nutrient and flavor enhancer. The book features recipes that cleverly employ oil, butter, or animal fats, such as her Perfect Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwich, which is slathered with a bacon fat–enriched mayonnaise.
