April is National BLT Sandwich Month. While we have quite a collection of BLT recipes, here’s something new: a BLT sandwich or BLT lettuce cups with chicharrónes, otherwise known as fried pork rinds. 4505 Meats, which created the recipe, calls it a BLCT: bacon, chicharrónes, lettuce, and tomato.

We love both the chicharrónes and the snack sticks from 4505 Meats.

We also like the fun of this sandwich, which adds chicharrón crunch to the lettuce in a BLT sandwich. Or, skip the carbs and make BLT lettuce cups.

National BLT Day is July 22nd, and National Pork Rinds Day is Super Bowl Sunday.
