4-Slice BLT with Blue Cheese & Steak Sauce


  • 16 slices meaty bacon (about 1 lb.)

  • 1 cup crumbled smoked blue cheese (I like Oscar’s) or regular blue cheese

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 1 clove garlic, grated

  • A few dashes of hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce

  • About 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives

  • Salt and pepper

  • 2 heirloom or beefsteak tomatoes, thickly sliced

  • 8 slices sourdough bread or rye bread

  • 1 head Bibb lettuce or 2 small heads Little Gem lettuce, leaves separated

  • 4 thick slices of white or Vidalia onion (1/4 inch each)

  • HP Sauce, A.1. Bold & Spicy sauce, or Peter Luger Steak Sauce


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400°.

Step 2

Line a baking sheet with foil and set a wire rack inside. Arrange the bacon on the rack. Bake until very crisp, 16 to 18 minutes. Preheat the broiler.

Step 3

In a medium bowl, whisk the blue cheese, sour cream, garlic, hot sauce, and Worcestershire. Stir in the chives; season with salt and pepper.

Step 4

Season the sliced tomatoes.

Step 5

On a large baking sheet, arrange the bread. Broil until lightly toasted, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Step 6

Build each sandwich with 1 piece of toast, the cheese sauce, 2 bacon slices, the lettuce, tomatoes, 2 more bacon slices, the onion, steak sauce, and another piece of toast. Cut the sandwiches from corner to corner.
