Country Fried B.L.T. with Fresh Herb Aioli

Recipe by  

"Bacon is considered by many (myself included) to be the ice cream of meats. Breading and frying it in oil takes it to a completely new level. I serve these on slider buns as appetizers for parties."

Directions

  1. Make the aioli by stirring the mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, basil, and dill together in a bowl. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Stir the flour, onion powder, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl. Whisk the heavy cream and beaten eggs together in a separate bowl.
  4. Dip each piece of bacon into the egg mixture and then into the flour mixture. Repeat the process a second time to assure each piece is heavily coated.
  5. Fry the bacon in the hot oil until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Set aside onto a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
  6. Spread a generous amount of the aioli onto each roll. Add a slice of tomato to each and season with salt and pepper. Finish the sandwiches with a portion of the lettuce and a few slices of bacon.

I had a little bit of a hard time getting the batter to fry well on the bacon...but overall a tasty sandwich!

This was just incredible! I made each sandwich by microwaving a tortilla, covered with very small sprinkling of shredded cheese, for about 30 seconds. Then I spread a fine smear of the aioli over the melted cheese, topped it with romaine lettuce and slivered tomatoes and used about 2 pieces of the fried bacon (brought a tear to my husband's eye when he saw me frying it!!!) and rolled each one up. PERFECT!
