Classic BLT with a Little Twist

BLT's really are just a classic quick and easy, throw together sandwich. All you really need is 2 yummy pieces of bread, (I prefer Rye Bread) one firm ripe tomato, some lettuce, and a couple pieces of bacon. Well this sandwich is just that, but I added cream cheese and a little twist to the tomato. Find out below....

4 slices Rye Bread
1 Tomato (Sliced and make sure tomato is firm and ripe. If not the tomato will turn out mushy)
6 Slices of Bacon
Couple pieces of Leaf Lettuce
1/2 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
1/2 tsp. Italian Seasoning
4 Tbsp. Cream Cheese
1 1/2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
Pinch of Salt

Start off by cooking bacon on medium heat in skillet. While the bacon is cooking, slice the tomato and season both sides with a pinch of salt. Next, mix together the bread crumbs and italian seasoning. You are then going to dip both sides of the tomato in the bread crumb mixture, making sure both sides are coated very well!. After the bacon is done cooking, place it on a paper towel to clean off any excess oil. Clean the pan and return to stove. Heat olive oil in skillet and then place slices of tomato in pan and cook on both sides, about 2 minutes each. When done, lay flat on a paper towel to dry. Meanwhile, toast your bread, then spread 2 Tbsp. cream cheese between the 2 slices. Layer lettuce, tomato, and bacon on to your toast and ENJOY!!!!
