Man Food: Honey Tea Whiskey BLT

“Baby, I’m going to soak bacon in honey tea whiskey and make a sandwich with it.”

Oh how I love this man.

He let the bacon soak in the whiskey over night and then put it on the grill. We had to finish off the bacon in the oven because the flame wasn’t cooking it evenly, but it gave it a really nice char flavor to start.

This photo below reminds me of that meme that says:

Roses are red,
Bacon is red.
Poems are hard.


The sweet whiskey flavor came out just enough to make it an extra special BLT.

Again: Bacon. Whiskey. (Kinda sexy right?) I love him. Need I say anything else?

Honey Tea Whiskey BLT
6-10 slices of bacon
White bread toasted
Sliced fresh tomato
American cheese (optional)
1 cup Honey Tea Whiskey (we used Red Stag by Jim Beam)

1. Soak your bacon in a tupperware container with your sweet tea whiskey over night in the fridge.

2. Grill bacon on skewers, or bake in the oven until cooked through. (We like ours crispy on a BLT).

3. Layer your toasted white bread with mayo, cheese, lettuce, tomato and bacon. Serve and be loved.

    I have never even heard of Honey Tea Whisky, but it sounds like all you’d need is a lemon wedge and you’d have a hot toddy. Yummm.
    How do you guys eat this stuff and stay so skinny? 🙂

    Oh man, we have to work out big time. I run during my lunch breaks at work and he plays soccer and basketball. It’s not easy and we totally blame the blog 🙂

    Just an OCD hint.
    Only the plural of tomato has an “e,” as in tomatoes.

    This seriously made me want a BLT for lunch. I was good though and stuck to my pitiful Lean Cuisine. Damn you for tempting me, you evil woman, you! :p

    I have never had bacon soaked in whiskey but something tells me I’d like it way too much. 🙂

    I wonder if you can use whiskey mixed with tea and honey?
