I think Miracle Whip has a sweet taste to it. (yuck) I don't think it belongs anywhere near a tomato.

Word of Mouth Fried Tomato, Mozzarella and Bacon Sandwich

Source: Word of Mouth, New York
Yield: 6 sandwiches

1 1/2 pounds firm, fresh tomatoes, cored
12-inch loaf semolina bread
1 pound mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup fine cornmeal
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup prepared pesto
12 basil leaves
12 slices bacon, cooked

Slice tomatoes into 12 (1/2-inch) slices. Cut bread diagonally into 12 slices; toast. Cut mozzarella into 12 (1/4-inch) slices.

In small shallow bowl, combine cornmeal, garlic salt and pepper. Dip tomatoes in mixture, coating both sides; shake off excess.

In large skillet, heat oil over medium- high heat until hot; pan-fry tomato slices until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Remove; drain on paper towels.

Spread each bread slice with pesto; arrange mozzarella slices on 6 of bread slices; top each with 2 tomato slices, 2 basil leaves and 2 bacon slices. Top with remaining bread.

The ultimate BLT:

Whole wheat bread, toasted in the oven, then rubbed with a cut clove of garlic - makes it VERY garlicky!

Bacon, lots of bacon.

Crisp buttery lettuce and a few slivers of fresh basil

Cracked black pepper and season salt

Cherokee purple tomato

No mayo or butter or any kind of wet stuff, this is a minimalist BLT.

Bread - bacon - lettuce - tomato - lettuce - bread. That way, the wet tomatoes don't come in contact with the bread and make it all soggy.

Lettuce is optional here.

Butter Krust Texas Toast
Kraft Real Mayo (sometimes sprinkled with a touch of ground chipolte)
Thick cut Deli Bacon (Boars Head if available, peppered)
Cherokee Purple cut at least 1/2" thick

Mayo sort of seals the toast, so it doesn't get too soggy. But for ultimate satisfaction, you should have juice dripping down your chin.

This is our favorite: quick and easy late night snack.

bake some flaky biscuits according to direction
while baking...make the Aioli

Aioli
4 (or more) cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 egg
2 tbl lemon juice
1/2 tsp dry mustard
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Cayenne pepper to taste (optional)
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Combine the egg, garlic, lemon juice, mustard, salt, pepper, cayenne, and 1/4 cup of the oil in an electric blender or food processor. Turn on the machine (medium speed...I use 4) and add the remaining oil in a thin stream. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

When finished cut biscuit to make a top and bottom half
put thinly sliced turkey on the bottom and some thinly sliced swiss cheese. On the top half spread Aioli on it, and add 1-2 slices of your favorite voluptuous juicy tomato...put together sandwich and eat....

Has anyone substituted Thousand Island dressing for Mayo? Ami

Interesting idea, Ami. I think I'd be too worried about the 1000 Island being tangy enough to compete with the tomato, but if you had a tomato with a strong, classic tomato flavor, that might work well. I like mine with Duke's mayo, on whole grain toast, with some green leaf lettuce, center cut bacon and some cracked black pepper.

This is how I like to use smaller tomatoes in a sandwich:

Take a cup or so of cherry tomatoes, pear tomatoes, random stunted tomatoes, etc, and chop them into about half inch pieces. Toast a handful of pecans and chop them up into smaller pieces. Mix pecans, a big spoonful of good mayo, a dash of salt, pepper, a good pinch of tarragon, and some chopped green onions and stir it gently with the chopped tomatoes.

Scoop a bunch of this "salad" onto three or four slices of toasted crusty bread and share with other people... unless you're just super hungry.

I also eschew lettuce on my BLT's. I've been making my best ones this year with:

Sourdough Italian bread
Hellmans Light Mayonnaise (can't tell the difference)
Thick tomato slices
Oscars smoked bacon
Strips of hot and cubanelle peppers fried with the bacon
Fresh ground pepper
Sea salt
Light sprinkling of garlic powder on the tomato

Sometimes, instead of the peppers, I'll use very thinly sliced raw red onion.
