Mrs. Conner's BLT

There is a story behind this recipe. I was staying at one of my best friends Teresa's house, at the beach. Her husband John, aka Paco, is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet. He is a character and loves to dabble in the kitchen. John said when he was a young boy he would visit Mrs. Conner and she would make him this delicious sandwich. It was a real treat for him. Well this particular morning John offered to make me a Mrs. Conner's BLT, but when he told me the ingredients I snubbed my nose at it. I thought it sounded just awful, but I was wrong. He talked me into trying a bite of his and I have been in love with this sandwich ever since. As a matter of fact, I even crave it from time to time. So look at this sandwich through different eyes and be brave and try this version of the old classic BLT. Kudos to Mrs. Conner your name lives on in this sandwich.

Mrs. Conner's BLT

  • 2 slices bread, toasted
  • mayonnaise
  • lettuce
  • tomato, sliced thin
  • 3 slices bacon
  • dill pickles, sliced thin, or dill pickle sandwich slices
  • 1 egg
  • freshly ground black pepper

This recipe is enough for one sandwich. Basically this sandwich is a BLT with a fried egg and dill pickle slices. Toast bread and cook bacon until crispy. Slice tomato and wash a piece of lettuce. Fry one egg in a nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking oil. Flip egg over and I like to press down and break egg yolk and cook until cooked all the way through. Spread the mayo on the toast then add lettuce, tomato, bacon, fried egg and pickles slices and some freshly ground black pepper. Top with second slice of toast then cut in half. Enjoy!


  1. Brings back some memories of my dad making these for us when we were kids..He did not put a pickle on it though. Can't wait to try it. Funny, we are having grilled cheese,bacon and tomato sandwiches tonight for dinner...Yummm

  2. This sounds delicious! I love dill pickles. Eggs and bacon and tomatoes are natural partners. I am definitely trying this!
