Grilled Provolone Instead Of Bacon In BLT

Craving a BLT and no bacon in the fridge? Doctor says, "cut the bacon from you diet?" Gone vegetarian? Tummy can't handle the additives in bacon? Here's a yummy alternative to the bacon in your BLT.

Provolone cheese. Yep, you read that right.

Simple. Using a small non-stick fry pan, place a slice of provolone cheese in the pan. (Smoked provolone is even better.) On low heat, fry the cheese slowly. I know it looks like you're going to have a big mess to clean out of that pan, but you gotta trust me here.

With a non-stick spatula, gently lift the edges of the cheese as it cooks. When you can insert the spatula all the way under the cheese, it's cooked enough on that side to flip it over.

Cook the other side, pressing with the spatula occasionally to force the oils out of it and keep it flat. When it is very brown and very crispy, lift it out and lay it between paper towels to soak up any remaining oil.

Now it's ready to use in your BLT. It has the same consistency as bacon and the smokey flavor will fool your taste buds too.

Rasta, glad you liked it and took the time to leave a comment. I always love it when someone tries my ideas and confirms that I'm not crazy.

Somewhere on ThriftyFun I have Bacon Alternative for cooking using olive oil and packaged Bacon Bits. Maybe you can do a search and find it or I'm sure it will show up on the main page eventually. Looks like this V

Frugal and Arent, you are so welcome. I think you'll like it. It's kind of fun, too. Just be sure to use a really non-stick pan and cook slowly.

Hey, Arent, I'm a visual learner, and I appreciate lots of photos when I try something new. Figured other people might too. Hope you all will give a thumbs up on this idea. Thank you kindly.

That's fricken genius. My guy loves what he calls burnt cheese. I can't wait to try this. Love provolone too.
