Sunday Supper Super BLT Bites on Sourdough with Tarragon Mayonnaise Recipe

Rules are made to be broken, right?  Those of you who have read this blog for awhile know that I promote good conversation with family and friends during Sunday supper…which means NO television.   That rule will be broken next Sunday when we all gather around the screen to watch the Super Bowl.

Even though my two teams, Cincinnati Bengals and Chicago Bears, will not be making an appearance this year (maybe next?) we’ll all be watching the Patriots and Giants battle it out.  These teams have great quarterbacks and it should be an interesting game…well, at least we all hope it will be!  Is there anything worse than a big game that’s won in the first half?

I came up with the idea for these savory little bites because…well…I love bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches.  I’ve modified them with thicker bacon, artisanal bread, and a bit of herb in the mayo…but you get the idea.  They’re gussied up for their ‘game day” appearance, but what makes them special is that they’re are so tiny and tasty.    These savory little bites will be gone in minutes, so you might want to make a double batch.

I’d like to wish both New England and New York the best of luck!


Super BLT Bites on Sourdough with Tarragon Mayonnaise

Yield: 12 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Tiny, savory bites of bacon goodness.


12 slices of bread, sourdough or whatever you like
3 slices of bacon, thick, if you prefer
6 small tomatoes (I used Campari, a bit bigger than cherry)
1 leaf lettuce, your choice
1/2 cup mayonnaisse
1 teaspoon tarragon, snipped into small pieces


The hardest part of this recipe is not eating them all before putting them on the tray.

Toast 12 slices of bread, and with a small cookie/biscuit cutter (mine was 1 1/2 inch) cut out 2 rounds per piece. Use the remaining bits for bread crumbs and/or croutons.

Cut the bacon into 4 or 5 pieces per slice (so they fit on your cut out bread rounds) and fry until crisp.

Cut each tomato into slice (you should get 2 nice slices per tomato).

Tear the lettuce into 12 small pieces.

Mix the mayo and the tarragon together.

Assemble them. On a bread round, place a dab of the mayo, then a bit of lettuce, bacon, tomato and top with another round of bread.

    If rules are made to be broken, Superbowl game day is one to break them on. Not only watching TV instead of conversing, but gorging ourselves silly on good eats. This looks scrumptious, but will leave me room for more. Great looking recipe!

      Heidi, We agree on going for the goal on Sunday…we can be good Monday! Enjoy!

    You are absolutely right! How can we afford to miss Super Bowl? We have practically spent the year waiting for it…Of course, I am exaggerating! ;)
    I have spent several hours in the net searching for the right menu, perhaps that is the reason why I am so excited. I would like to try this sandwich recipe too…I am loving the mini versions. =) Thanks!

      Sounds like we are both looking forward to this Sunday…enjoy!

    […] Return to Sunday Supper, Martha Stewart Weddings, Ingalls Photo via Martha Stewart Weddings Now for a few final details: Since this is a dream shower, I have no trouble whipping together a monogrammed mason jar to send home with each guest (in addition to their bag of grits!). We’ll hire a bluegrass or country band to play, since Sierra loves country music. I’d also ask each guest to bring a mixed CD of their country favorites for the guest of honor. Finally, I’d for sure arrange to have these glittery heels for Miss Sierra to wear — with her green blouse, of course! Save Facebook it Tweet it […]

    Hi, how far in advance can these be made? They look wonderful. Thanks!

    • Susie replied: — June 20th, 2013 @ 1:32 pm

      I make them and serve them quickly because I like to have the bacon and toast warm and crisp and everything else cool and fresh. I think that if you made them ahead the bacon would be chewy, the bread soggy and the veggies limp.
