Bite Sized BLT's | Friday Night Bites


I know it has been a while since I have posted.  Life has been busy during the summer.  I made these little delights for Friday Night Bites and was quite please with how they turned out.  It was a perfect bite of crunch, savory, salty, smokey, spicy and a slight twist on a classic.




I have always loved a great BLT sandwich since being a kid.  I mean - who doesn't love bacon.  I quite frankly can't think of anyone.  This is the perfect little two bite wonder to serve to a small or large crowd.  I added the twist of sautéed garlic to the mayo to spice it up.  


The red onions and arugula add another level of flavor to this classic treat.  The only thing I would change going forward is not have the bread be too toasted - I would have the center of the bread be a bit softer to enable the bite to be easier, along with a tad more golden hue to the top of the toasts.


This is a super easy recipe that is a bit ad hoc.  You can make the amount more or less depending on the number of mini sandwiches you want to make.  I have the recipe for the garlic mayo to make 1 cup - you can save any extra for a later date or whatever else you might use mayo for.  

BITE SIZED BLT

Makes 12

24 Two inch rounds of Toasted White Bread
12 Slices of Roma Tomatoes
1/4 Cup Slices Red Onions
1 Cup Arugula
6 Slices of Bacon - Cooked Crispy

Garlic Mayo

1/3 Cup of Peeled Garlic Cloves
3 Tablespoons Olive oil
1 Cup Mayo

Add the olive oil and peeled garlic cloves to a medium skillet and cook over low medium heat until soft.  Remove from heat and let cool.  Remove garlic cloves from oil and mash with a fork then add to the cup of mayo and mix well.  Let cool in the refrigerator.

Assemble

To assemble, spread garlic mayo on each side of the toasts.  Place a few pieces of arugula on top, then a slice of tomato, then half of slice of bacon cut in half, then onion, then more arugula and finally the top of the other toast. Use a fancy toothpick to secure the mini BLT together.  Repeat until done.  ENJOY!
