History of the BLT
The bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich with mayonnaise is a popular choice in the United States. It is often served as a triple-decker sandwich on toast (and a U.K. favorite, too). The BLT is ‘kissin cousin’ to the club sandwich.
Toast, bacon, and lettuce have been on the table since Roman times, but it took a little longer for the other two things to come about.
Bread is the oldest of the five ingredients.
The ancient Egyptians knew how to use yeast to make bread rise.
Compared to flatbreads, loaves of bread gave people more ways to prepare food.
Then there was lettuce.
Ancient Egyptians started growing lettuce as early as 2680 B.C.E., turning it from a weed into a food plant.
By the year 50 CE, both Greece and Rome were growing many different kinds of lettuce.
Next comes the bacon.
Wild boar meat has been kept for a long time by smoking, salting, and drying it since the Paleolithic era.
(The Paleolithic, also called the Stone Age, lasted from about 8,500 BCE to 750,000 BCE, according to a source.)
Pigs were first tamed from wild boars around 13,000–12,700 BCE.
But there was nothing that looked like bacon today.
Around the middle of the 1800s, bacon as we know it today first showed up.
“Bacon” used to mean all pork, then just the back meat, and then all cured pork.
When British farmers saw that some pig breeds had much bigger flanks, they started a movement and decided that “bacon” was the salted, cured side of pork.
Here is some information about the history of bacon and the different kinds of it.
At the end of the 1600s, tomatoes were brought from the New World to Europe.
nevertheless, not as food.
The first kinds of tomatoes looked like golden cherry tomatoes.
Even though they were thought to be dangerous, they were used as houseplants (they belong to the Nightshade family).
Tomatoes weren’t popular again for another two hundred years, until a famine in Italy in the early 1800s.
In the 1600s, they made their way to England (see the history of tomatoes).
Mayonnaise to top it off.
There was also no mayo to go with the BLT.
Mahónnaise sauce was made for the first time in 1756, but it took a long time for it to become the well-known mayo we know today.
The great French chef Marie-Antoine Carême (1784–1833) made the original recipe lighter when he mixed vegetable oil and egg yolks to make mayonnaise (the history of mayonnaise).
But no one had thought of the sandwich
In 1762, the famous food had to be made for the fourth Earl of Sandwich, John Montagu.
(Background on the sandwich)
He was a marathon gambler who wouldn’t get up to eat, so he asked for some meat and bread.
He didn’t need a knife or fork to eat because he could throw dice with one hand and eat with the other.
Sushi was made with the same idea in mind.
The first sandwiches were meant to be easy snacks for players that didn’t require any tools.
Even though fancier sandwiches got better over time, it took more than a century for someone to make the club sandwich.
the club sandwich was made.
Even though Victorians ate tea sandwiches with bacon, lettuce, and tomato, a look at American and European cookbooks from the late 1800s and early 1900s shows that the club sandwich came before the BLT.
Food Timeline says that most food historians agree that the club sandwich was probably made in the United States in the late 1800s or early 1900s.
No written record has been found yet, so people are still arguing about where and who it happened.
In the main idea, the Saratoga Club in Saratoga, New York, is mentioned.
Because the club sandwich was so popular, it quickly spread to other men’s clubs.
The first written recipe was in the Good Housekeeping Everyday CookBook from 1903.
Two pieces of bread, bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, and a slice of turkey were needed (no one has yet discovered when the third slice of bread was added).
So, the turkey BLT club sandwich is on menus and in cookbooks.
