BLT Sandwiches are great in a pinch. My favorite is the Italian BLT. I found this recipe in the October 2002 edition of Southern Living. I thought you might enjoy it, too.

Be sure to have on hand the following ingredients:

1/2 (16-ounce) Italian bread loaf

1/4 cup Italian dressing

1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup mustard

1/2 pound thinly sliced Genoa salami

1/2 pound thinly sliced mortadella or bologna

4 (1-ounce) provolone cheese slices

Romaine lettuce leaves

3 plum tomatoes, sliced

8 bacon slices, cooked and cut in half

Garnish: pimiento-stuffed green olives

Preheat your oven to 375°

To prepare your Italian BLT Sandwiches, cut the bread diagonally into 8 slices; arrange them a baking sheet. Brush the slices evenly with Italian dressing, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake for 5 to 6 minutes until lightly toasted.

Stir together mayonnaise and mustard; spread the untoasted side of the bread evenly with mayonnaise mixture.

Layer 4 bread slices, mayonnaise mixture side up, with salami and the next 5 ingredients. Top with the remaining 4 bread slices, mayonnaise side down. Secure with wooden picks. Garnish if you desire. 

Enjoy!
