Grilled BLT

You may ask yourself, “Ok, its a great idea to cook with the seasons, but how do I start?” Glad you asked…

The first thing that you can do is to become familiar with your state’s crop calendar. This information is provided to you at the top of this page. Start slowly, there is no reason to feel like you have to buy everything that is in season. Choose a fruit or vegetable that you know your family would love.

You will see that tomatoes are currently in season in many states. Tomatoes are such a fun item to cook with. One bite into a fresh, in-season tomato and you will never want to go back to eating tomatoes out-of-season when they are mushy and have plastic skin.

Here is my favorite, simple recipe to use tomatoes:

Grilled BLT

2 slices of your favorite break (we love Sara Lee Hearty & Delicious)
1 slice of your favorite cheese (ex. Swiss, cheddar, Pepper Jack)
3 slices of bacon (you can use Turkey Bacon for a healthier option)
Tomatoes
Lettuce
Avocado
Mayo, Mustard (optional)

Goodness my mouth is already watering just thinking about this. You basically compile the sandwich and warm it in your frying pan on the stove and Voila! a yummy Grilled BLT with the freshest tomatoes! I think this is calling my name for lunch today.
