A Maltese version of the American classic. I am not quite a fan of American cuisine, if there is such a thing, but I have always been intrigued, and somewhat intimidated, by the classic BLT. It always looks humungous in pictures and I would have never dared to order it in a café (when my girlfriends are probably having a green tea and a miniature toastie of some sort). Thus, this is the perfect dish to create in the comfort of your home, away from the raised eyebrows.
I popped out to my local baker, which is 2-minute walk away, last Saturday morning and got myself a ftira, still warm, fresh out of what seems like a 1950’s bread oven, (il-ftira sħuna tajba, mhux hekk?). I guess, the downside to eating this at home is that I have to share it, whereas the girls wouldn’t dare.
I added a few slices of tomatoes and a few lettuce leaves on the ftira, as well as the grilled bacon and sausage.
