Bacon Lettuce Tomato Gelato Open Face Sandwich
The Turtle Gelateria has a never before seen flavor for you all made with Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato - like the American Bacon Lettuce Tomato sandwich (a.k.a. as a BLT). Mary Stanley, gelato maker created this sandwich for Bacon and Beer Fest at Fair Market in Austin Texas. The open faced bacon, lettuce and tomato gelato sandwich is a whole wheat mini toast topped with a layer of bacon gelato, a layer of lettuce/kale sorbetto and a circle of smokey tomato gelato with a dab of candied bacon aioli. This savory gelato sandwich was packed with powerful bursts of flavors - not sweet but refreshing and savory. The Turtle Gelateria's BLT gelato sandwich was considered to be the most creative bacon dish presented at the fair. A portion of the proceeds benefit Capital Area Food Bank of Texas. This popular event showcases bacon-centric food prepared by bacon-loving chefs from Austin and Central Texas. Ask us and we'll make you some gelato BLT's for your next event.
