Honestly I am not a fan of sandwiches, too boring, but when my good friend mentioned something about a BLT using peaches instead of tomatoes, I was instantly intrigued. I thought what a great flavor combo, bacon and peaches hmmm….. Well I had chicken sandwiches on the menu anyway so why not go that extra step, peaches are after all in season. I am so glad I did, this was fantastic, the whole family raved about them and the combination of flavors is one of my newest cravings. These will make it on the menu several more times before peach season is over.
