Cute as a bug BLT sandwich

Bacon Lettuce and Tomato BLT sandwich open-faced with tomatoes and olives cut to look like a ladybug on top of the leaf of lettuce

This is Jill’s creation and you can find the details of her open-faced ladybug BLT sandwich on Canadian Family.

The ladybug is certainly adorable and is easy to make. I immediately saved it away to share with you guys. Now that I’m posting about it, though, I can’t help but think….

But who eats a BLT as an open-faced sandwich?? Don’t get me wrong….I’d still eat the heck out of this and it doesn’t change its cuteness factor at all. But it seems like it’d be a pain to eat.

There’s no way a fork is going to easily tear through the chewy bacon or the leaf of lettuce on top. Adding another slice of bread would cover up the food art, but it’d make it more practical to eat.

Also, who eats olives on a BLT? I suppose Jill and her family does, but I’m betting those icing/candy eyes aren’t a normal topping for bacon, lettuce, and tomato, even in her family.

Unfortunately, the more I play with my own food, the more I hate when a food has to be changed right before eating in order to actually enjoy it, whether that’s eating the parts that don’t really mix well first (like the candy eyes on an olive) or pulling out toothpicks or having to take a knife to a sandwich that would otherwise be simple to eat in a different arrangement.

Then again, maybe I’m being a party pooper and should’ve just stuck with that “awww, isn’t it cute??” reaction I had first, hehe.
