Bacon, Lettuce, & Tomato Completo

In Paraguay, I learned that any sandwich with an egg makes it a “completo.” Tinicum CSA veggies are so delicious in this BLT Completo. I’m looking forward to summer, so I can make this again. Give it try!


  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 1/4 onion, diced
  • 1/2 thai pepper, minced(optional)
  • 1/4 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • lettuce leaves
  • 1 or 2 eggs
  • 2 slices of bread
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • Preparation

    1. In a small frying pan, fry up the bacon. Set aside for sandwich making.

    2. While the bacon is frying, dice the onions & bell pepper, and mince the thai pepper.

    3. Begin sautéeing the onion, bell pepper, and thai pepper.

    4. Once the veggies begin to brown (after 2 minutes or so), crack two eggs into the pan. Sprinkle a little salt on them and grind some black pepper over them.

    5. Slice your tomato. Featured here: one of our heirloom varieties called Striped German.

    6. Tear a few lettuce leaves off of a head of lettuce and rinse. You’re about to assemble the BLT Completo!

    7. Once you flip the eggs, top them with some cheddar.

    8. Toast the bread & assemble your sandwich.

    9. Eat!

    Note: Any extra lettuce, tomato, & bacon can be eaten as a side.
