Ultimate BLT with Aioli Sauce
2 Servings
 4 slices of Artisan bread. We used Brasserie 529 Lemon Basil Brioche.
1 bunch of arugula
1 bunch of butter head lettuce
1 tomato
1/4 red onion
12 slices of fresh bacon. If you cannot find fresh bacon at your local supermarket, Applegate Farms’ Natural Bacon, turkey or pork is a great alternative.
2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil (for turkey bacon)
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
Aioli Sauce
1 large egg yolk
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 cloves of garlic, minced
Fresh Raspberries with Cane Sugar
4 ounces of fresh raspberries
1 tablespoon of cane sugar

BLT: Preheat oven to 375˚ F. Place bacon on baking sheet (add extra-virgin olive oil for turkey bacon) and sprinkle on brown sugar. Cook in oven for 12 minutes or until crispy. Next, thinly slice tomato and red onion.
Aioli Sauce: In a medium mixing bowl add egg yolk, dijon mustard, sea salt, fresh lemon juice (without seeds) and minced garlic. Mix contents until liquid has turned yellow. Slowly whisk in extra-virgin olive oil until completely emulsified, resembling mayonnaise. Refrigerate until sandwiches are ready to be made.
Fresh Raspberries with Cane Sugar: In colander, rinse raspberries thoroughly. Remove from colander, place on paper towel and gently pat dry. Sprinkle on cane sugar.
Sandwiches: Spread Aioli sauce on 4 slices of bread. Stack on two slices of Artisan bread, bacon, arugula, butter-head lettuce, sliced tomato and onion. Top off sandwich with the other half of sliced bread, and enjoy.
All vegetables and eggs are from The Forsyth Farmers’ Market
