Don’t you sometimes need just a bite or two of something? Not a whole sandwich, not a whole piece or slice, but just a bite. Well, this is one of those recipes for when you just want a bite. A bite of a BLT, that is.

These BLT Bites take all the elements of a classic bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich and reduces them to one gorgeous, delicious bite. It’s simply toasted sourdough bread, topped with mayonnaise, a slice of bacon, lettuce and a halved cherry tomato. Sprinkle with salt. Devour.

Great for Sunday afternoons while watching whatever sporting event. Fabulous with drinks before dinner. Or just make a plate full for after school snacks.

How to Make BLT Bites

Prepare the sourdough bread for BLT Bites

Cut the crusts from the bread. Then cut each slice of bread into four rectangles. Place the bread rectangles on a baking sheet and toast them until they’re golden brown. Allow the toast to cool before proceeding.

Cook the bacon and slice the cherry tomatoes

Cut the bacon slices into thirds and cut the cherry tomatoes in half. I used some bacon I had left over from breakfast.

You really need to use the thickest market bacon you can find for this. The thinner bacon will crumble when you cut it into thirds and will crumble even worse when you put a toothpick through it in the final step.

Assemble the BLT Bites

Assemble the appetizers: Spread one side of each toast with mayonnaise. Top with one piece of bacon, a lettuce leaf and half a cherry tomato. Sprinkle with salt (I used a Hawaiian black sea salt in the photo).

Makes 12 appetizers.

  1. Now this is what I’m talking about. I’m having people over in a few weeks but didn’t want to cook a meal, just some some stuff to nibble on and these are perfect! Thanks Lana.

    1. This recipe would be great for that, Teri. Just be sure to use the thick-cut bacon. And, by the way, I cook my bacon in the oven not on the stovetop. Much less mess that way!

  2. These are awesome! And I love that they can go either in the direction of a tailgate or a tea.

  3. I love this idea…and they’re so beautifully presented. It would be easy to get carried away and eat these without realizing how many you’ve put away! =)

  4. These have got to be delicious because you can’t go wrong with that combination. I’d have to double or triple or even quadruple the recipe though, because just a bit won’t be enough.

    1. It’s easily doubled, tripled, whatever. Make sure there are lots of folks around to help eat them because it’s easy to keep picking up one, then another, then another…

  5. Thanks, everyone for your comments! Yes, these are so good and very easy to make. And it’s pretty hard to just eat one of them :-)

  6. BLT appetizer style. I love it!!!! Though, it would be hard to eat just one.

  7. Oooh, I made these a few months ago, but yours look SO much better!! Mine didn’t have bread, so maybe that’s what I need to do next time. Delicious though, right?! :)

  8. These look wonderful and so pretty too. My only problem with these is that I would want a bite, and then another bite and then….Many thanks for sharing.
