Author Notes: The BCLT is a delectable twist on the BLT, with bacon, gooey fried cheese, lettuce and slow roasted tomatoes.
The frying cheese I used has bacon crumbles already incorporated, but if you can only find plain frying cheese, cook and crumble a couple slices of bacon over the tomatoes before serving.
