BLT infused with Imperial IPA beer jelly

from Malty & Hoppy Delicacy

Give a “beer you can eat” twist to this classic of the North American comfort food: bacon, lettuce, and tomato… nothing fancy, just crazy delicious!

Prep: 5 mins

Cook: 10 mins    

Yield: 1 sandwich


  • 4 slices bacon
  • 2 leaves lettuce
  • 2 slices tomato
  • ½ avocado sliced (optional)
  • 2 slices bread, toasted
  • 1 teaspoon Imperial IPA beer jelly
  • Mustard sauce (1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard, ½ teaspoon of grainy mustard, ½ teaspoon of mayonnaise, ½ teaspoon of Imperial IPA beer jelly)
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until starting to get browned, about 6 to 8 minutes. Add beer jelly, toss gently. Make sure that all bacon slices are evenly coated. Let them caramelize on low-medium heat (4 to 2 minutes). Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate.

Arrange lettuce, cooked bacon, avocado, and tomato slices on one slice of bread. Season with salt and pepper. Spread the remaining bread slice with the beer-infused mustard sauce. Bring the two pieces together to make a sandwich. Serve immediately.
