iron chef: blt

Okay, I kind of took a month off the internet not due to being so busy, but really because I was getting over this year’s iron chef birthday loss. I am, I guess, a sore loser. Happy birthday, Lindsay, thanks for the cooking complex! (Joking, joking! Best birthday ever!) But! Seriously these sandwiches were so so good and I’m still kind of in shock that we didn’t win, but it may have had something to do with telling everyone else that there was no way they were ever going to beat us. Or something.

Anyway, apparently this BLT was a bit controversial. I don’t see it. I think it really goes without saying that a BLT is a sandwich, and this sandwich had bacon, lettuce and tomatoes, and thus is definitely a BLT. Other competitors felt it needed a carbohydrate, but I am pretty sure that would have been overkill. Whatever, friends! Also, it was pretty amazingly delicious.

And, cute! Totally cute! (Will took the picture, he is good at photography and making ice cream sandwiches!) Anyway, it is easy, and good, and is a pretty good party treat as they are not messy at all. We fried pancetta in rosemary until it was crispy, cooked halved grape tomatoes in balsamic vinegar at 350F for maybe 45 minutes, and put them both in an endive leaf, which held up surprisingly well.

I maintain that this IS a sandwich, and am pretty much unwilling to be proven wrong on this one. BLT!

  1. Sans bread it’s not a sandwich m’dear. Really. A salad perhaps? But not a sandwich. A lettuce (endive?) wrap… maybe.

    But not a sandwich 😛

  2. wouldn’t this mean that any salad qualified as a sandwich? just saying.

  3. i have learned an important lesson. democracies equal rancour. next year i promise to go back to omnipotent dictator and cave in to my usual penchance for small, cute things.

  4. Sandwiches are a state of mind, and you intended to make a sandwich, therefore you did. Very molecular gastronomy of you.
