I cooked up some onion, garlic and crushed red pepper in EVOO. I then added the chopped fresh tomatoes and let soften and blend in. Finally, I added in those bacon pieces you get in the bag (real bacon, please, no substitutes) and warmed it through. We garnished it with grated cheese and ground black pepper.
While not brilliant, we both agreed this was a very good dish and it took about as much time to make as it does for me to do a posting on it. The crushed red pepper gave some background heat and using the last of the farmer's market tomatoes gave it a fresh flavor. We will definitely make this again: quick, easy, tasty and affordable is a hard combination to beat.
For wine, we had the Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio 2008 that was given a solid rating Costco Wine Blog. While not the best Pinot Grigio ever, at less than $8 a bottle it is a very good value. This someone sweet wine went well with the freshness of the tomato and my wife and I both agreed with the review that it was easy to drink and enjoy with this dinner.
To sum this up, the concept of Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato being used together has been around for a long time, but this shows there are still ways to innovate and put new spins on the idea.
