Slow Roasted BLT
Original recipe found at Not Without Salt.
1 lb butcher sliced bacon
1 loaf hearty bread
2 large beefsteak or red hot tomatoes
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 Tablespoons fresh basil, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Slice tomatoes to about 1/4 inch thickness and place on a cooking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle tomatoes very lightly with olive oil and season with pepper and just a tiny amount of salt. Roast in oven for 4 hours or until tomatoes are shrived on the edges but have maintained some juices. Set aside and allow to cool. Bring oven to 400 degrees. Place bacon in a cooking pan lined with parchment paper and set inside preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until crispy. Meanwhile, mix together basil and mayonnaise. Lightly toast bread in oven for 1-2 minutes and set aside. Liberally apply mayonnaise to toast and layer with 2 slices of tomato, several strips of bacon and enjoy!
