BLT Canapes #SundaySupper

Happy Labor Day Weekend! And it's all for you....the laborer. Whether you work in home, from home or away from home, your hard work is being recognized and appreciated.

Many of us will be celebrating Labor Day with our friends and family. Attending BBQ's, picnics, or just relaxing at home. What ever the case may be, this appetizer is perfect. It doesn't require much labor, it's quick, easy and delicious!

How can it not be? It's a deconstructed BLT sandwich and who doesn't enjoy a good ole BLT? (if you're raising your hand, I don't wanna know. I'd rather continue to think that I live in a perfect world where everyone loves BLT's.)

Today's Sunday Supper is all about Tantalizing Trays. Perfect for entertaining whether it's for Labor Day or a future event....the recipes that we've put together for you are bound to make your mouth water.

Now, this recipe calls for bacon that has been cooked and crumbled. If you must, use can use store bought bacon crumbles. If you have a little bit of time, cook your bacon (I bake it in the oven at 375' F on a baking sheet, turning once, until crisp) drain, then stuff it in a food processor

I have this wonderful mini food processor that was a wedding gift....a long, long time ago (I'm not going to say how many year ago, but if it were a child, it would have graduated from college by now). It's amazing. I use it often and it still works wonderfully! They just don't make things the way they used to, sadly enough.

Give the bacon a couple of pulses and viola!

You have fresh bacon crumbles with very little effort!

BLT Canapes
from the cookbook "What Can I Bring?" by Anne Byrn
makes about 24 canapes
Printable Version

1 cup mayonnaise
8 slices of bacon, cooked, drained and crumbled
1/4 cup loosely packed parsley, chopped
Cayenne Pepper to taste
24 toasted bread rounds or crackers
24 slices of plum tomatoes, patted dry (I used the heirlooms that I had on hand)
2/3 cup shredded iceberg lettuce

If you are using toasted bread rounds, get about 8 - 12 slices of sandwich bread. Using a 1 1/2" cookie cutter, cut the bread into rounds. Place them on a baking sheet and broil until lightly brown on one side, about 1 or 2 minutes.

I used crackers.

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, bacon and parsley. Add the cayenne pepper to taste. I started off with about 1/2 tsp, and ended up using 1 tsp. It has a nice little kick in the end. This can be stored in the fridge for up to 24 hours.

When you're ready to serve, spread 1 or 2 tsps of the bacon mixture on your bread or toast. Top with a tomato slice and garnish with the shredded lettuce.

And enjoy your bite sized BTL!
