Satay BLT Recipe

I must have satay sauce on the brain – I could eat it with almost anything. One Saturday I had a fancy for a BLT and thought the salty bacon would work perfectly smothered in a creamy, sweet and slightly spicy peanut sauce – I was right. Satay lovers will love this!

Ingredients: Ingredients for Satay BLT

Ingredients: For the sandwich 

  • 4 slices of sourdough or preferred bread
  • 6–8 rashers of smoked streaky bacon (depending on appetite)
  • 1–2 tomatoes (depending on the size)
  • Lettuce leaves

Ingredients: For the sauce 

Method: How to make Satay BLT

  1. Preheat your grill to high. Place the bacon on a baking sheet lined with foil. If you have a grill rack, sit your bacon on top. Cook for 5–10 minutes, until crispy.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl. Add a teaspoon of water at a time to achieve a ‘dolloping’ consistency.
  3. To assemble, toast your sourdough, then spread the sauce on each slice. Layer with bacon, tomatoes and lettuce. Dive in.
  4. TIP: I love the amount of sauce given in the recipe, but if you have any left over you can add it to a noodle stir-fry, add stock to make a creamy ramen-style noodle broth, or use it as a dip for prawns, summer rolls or even tortilla chips!
  5. VEGAN: Swap the bacon for crispy fried tofu (see page 98, but cut the tofu into slices).
