I was going for something original. Something no one had had before.
Okay, let’s be honest, it was an accident. I was starving, had only a few things in the house and ran out of bread. But on the bright side, I did make something that I think I would actually go out and buy the ingredients for to make again. Made for an excellent pre-lunch snack (read: second breakfast) and is technically Paleo. What? Paleo and tastes good? Yup, no bread in this BLT.
Sweet Potato BLT
1/2 Pound of bacon
1 Medium sized tomato, diced
1 Sweet potato, peeled and diced
Salt and pepper, to taste
In a medium-sized skillet, cook bacon until crispy. Remove cooked pieces from pan and let cool on a paper towel (which will also soak up some excess bacon fat).
Remove most of the bacon fat and place skillet back on the stove. Add sweet potato and cook on medium heat until crispy. This can take 10-15 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Chop bacon and add to a bowl. Add sweet potato, diced tomato, and roughly chopped iceberg lettuce. Add salt and pepper. Toss and enjoy.
