This Classic BLT with Garlic Basil Aioli is so over-the-top good it probably should be outlawed. All I can say…when you can get amazing tomatoes (like fresh heirloom) at their peek…go for it. Get yourself a nice thick bacon. Go with some peppery arugla. Delicious toasted sourdough bread. And the topper-twister to end all topper-twisters…garlic basil aioli. Wow, oh wow. This classic sandwich just got brought up a few notches. Amazing. 150% Loon Approved!
