Not Your Mama's BLT | White Lights on Wednesday

I love the idea of a BLT, except the traditional T.  Raw tomatoes are not my thing.  Sure I’ll eat salsa, but the weird seedy membrane texture is SO not okay on my palate.  To get the tomato flavor, we’re going sun-dried!  My favorite way to eat a tomato!  This sandwich is a twist on the classic sandwich made fancy with a delicious aioli.  Mmmmm.  Aioli.  I would totally add avocado to this bad boy too, but alas there was none in the house.  Lots of bacon, aioli, lettuce, a little cheese, and toasty bread is what it’s all about!
