As you’ve probably figured out, baseball is kind of a big thing around here in July. And by big thing, I mean it controls our lives. I finally get my kitchen back only to have five nights IN A ROW for three weeks of being gone at dinner time.
My inner cook was dying a slow death. No. more. concession. food.
And then I thought hey, I can’t be home for dinner but there is no reason I can’t bring dinner to the ball field. And share with friends! Wonderful plan.
I needed something easy to transport. And easy to eat. And that’s when classic BLTs hit me: is there a better time to eat a tomato than in the dead of July?
No, there isn’t. And you can finally use up some of that basil that is overtaking your patio. Mix it up with the mayo and add a splash of fresh lemon juice. It’s delicious and complements the rest of the sandwich perfectly.
Get these BLT sliders going for your next picnic, sporting event, heck, even for dinner at home tonight! You won’t be disappointed.
