Even though we've moved from summer to autumn, the tomato plants in our back garden are still producing at an incredible rate. Fresh, ripe tomatoes are a treat, and one of the best ways to highlight their flavor is with a delicious BLT. I wanted to make something with the same combination of flavors, but in more of an appetizer form.
This BLT dip was quick and simple, and by using melba toasts as my primary dipper, they really did taste like a scoopable blt sandwich.
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sour cream
4 oz cream cheese
2-3 fresh tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 package bacon cooked, drained, and chopped
1/2 head iceburg lettuce chopped
Mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream, and cream cheese until smooth in consistency. Spread the mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish.Top with the chopped tomatoes, some fresh ground black pepper, and half of the bacon. Top with the iceburg lettuce and the remainder of the bacon.
Serve with crackers or melba toast.
