BLT'S With Roasted Onion Mayonnaise

 BLT's are one of my all time favorite sandwiches and although there is nothing wrong with a plain BLT it doesn't hurt to add a twist to it from time to time.  I love making BLT's at home because I'm able to be creative with what I add and I can I can pile on as much bacon, lettuce and tomato as I want.  When I was on maternity leave I was the queen of sandwiches; there were days where I would have plain turkey sandwiches but there were other days where I wanted a change so I would get creative with what I put on them.  I had already had BLT's a few days one week and it still sounded good but I decided to change it up a little bit by making a roasted onion mayonnaise.  The flavor of the roasted onions added another element of flavor to this sandwich and it was absolutley delicious.  

I ended up having to make these again for supper one night, because when Spencer got home I told him about the sandwich and showed him the picture and his mouth was watering.  When I made these for us to have one night, he went on and on about them and said we would definitely have to have them again.  Another reason he loved them is because there was tons of bacon on the sandwich.  He really likes these sandwiches but they never seem to fill him up when he orders one from somewhere, so when I made his I was sure to load it with a lot of everything!  He's now a huge fan of homemade BLT's.

BLT's with Roasted Onion Mayonnaise

8-10 slices of bacon
1 Medium tomato, sliced
1/2 Cup mayonnaise
2 Thin slices of onion, cut in strips
4 Slices bread, lightly toasted
salt and pepper
hint of onion powder


Preheat oven to 350.

Place a slotted rack (I used cooling racks) on a sheet pan and lay slices of bacon on the rack in a single layer.  Place bacon in the oven and cook for 10 minutes, turn bacon over and cook for another 10 minutes.  Remove the bacon from the oven and place onion slices on the sheet pan and place the onions and bacon back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool.  If the bacon isn't completely cooked place back in oven until it's cooked to your liking.

Remove cooled onions from the pan and place on a paper towel to remove the bacon grease.  Roughly chop the onions, place them in the mayonnaise and stir together.  Add salt, pepper and onion powder to taste and mix together.  Spread the mayonnaise onto the 4 toasted slices of bread, add the bacon, lettuce and tomato to two slices of the bread and then top with the other two slices.
