My Mouth Is Happy

Oh. Wait! What am I blubbering about? I still have plenty to blog about. Like my dinner. What do you get when you combine:

You get a PLT. No, no, I know my alphabet. Not a BLT, a PLT. Pepperoni, lettuce, and tomato. Really it should be called a PLTM because the Mayo is really just as important as any of the other ingredients. The secret to this delectable sandwich is getting the pepperonies crispy. Place a paper towel, or two, on a plate and cover it with pepperoni (in a single layer, but it is okay if they overlap a little), then cover that with one more paper towel in order to catch splatters. Microwave on high for a minute or two until crispy, it will crisp more as it cools. Then build as you would your favorite BLT. I always like to smash mine and cut in half for easier eating.
I actually prefer these over BLTs because the flavor is so much more intense. Also, don't be turned off by this just because of the pepperoni. I HATE pepperoni pizza. This is pretty much the only way I will eat pepperoni, actually. Not to mention the fact that microwaving pepperoni is SO much easier and cleaner than frying up a bunch of bacon. Enjoy!

I don't care what you call it, just ditch the white bread for spelt bread and whip one of those sammis up for your ol' pal Daddy Shark. I'll be right over.

Okay, I know that many people would turn their nose up at a PLT...but not me...that sounds great!

Hmm. This sounds interesting-- and a lot easier than frying bacon for six people, three of whom are male carnivores...

Pepperoni's not my favorite food. All those blotchy bits put me off. Like, what's the white stuff? Give me a box of Chocolate Creamies any day.

Or . . . if you fancy a Yorkshire Pudding, come on over to my blog and find out how to make them :-)
