BLT Recipe

If you’ve ever seen the movie Spanglish you probably recognize this sandwich. It’s none other than the World’s Greatest Sandwich by Thomas Keller. He was asked to make an amazing snack for the movie that everyone at home would want to eat, and that he did. From the first time, I saw the movie I immediately wanted to make this sandwich. The recipe wasn’t hard to find either; it is actually included on the DVD. Thomas Keller also had to train Adam Sandler (who had never cooked before) to make this great sandwich in the movie. There is a short clip included on the DVD of the training session. For those of you who have never watched the movie, the World’s Greatest Sandwich is basically a BLT with a fried egg and Monterey jack cheese. The original recipe calls for pain de champagne (rustic country loaf), but that can be hard to find so sourdough would be a good substitute. If you’re in the mood for a delicious late night snack this is for you, but is it really “The World’s Greatest Sandwich”? I’ll let you decide.

Hi. We had this for dinner tonight and it was a blast. My brother packed one, he works graveyard in a call center. Our staple is rice but I thought it would be a welcome surprise to serve this and I proved myself right. Everyone enjoyed it and had their fill, iced tea on the side. Great way to end the day. Thanks to you!

This sandwich certainly look appetizing, so much so that it's 6.30am in Australia and I would have to say it looks like the perfect breakfast.

Take Care, Olive

Just days to go to summer vacation, my son surprised me with this delicious recipe. Not using all the mentioned ingredients, giving them a variation to what we have in europe, we really loved it.

Best regards from Germany
