Day 1, #1 BLT
Today I am enjoying our sandwich #1, a Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwich. This sandwich is made with Applewood smoked Bacon, lettuce, and tomato on fresh Zingerman's Jewish Rye Bread.
While I have not eaten bacon in a very long time, it was surprisingly crispy and had great flavor. I was also very surprised with the rye bread (Which I have avoided since childhood). The Jewish Rye on this sandwich did not have an overbearing flavor, and it was actually something that I enjoyed.
The interesting part about Zingerman's Jewish Rye is that it is actually made with real rye flour (most "rye bread" sold in America contains very little rye flour), a natural sour rye starter, and ground caraway seeds.
Overall I was very happy to have given this sandwich a chance, especially because the bread was so different than my original thoughts of rye bread.
