This is probably my favorite sandwich ever. And I am not just saying that. I love a good Philly Cheesesteak and a BBQ Beef Sandwich but there is just something about an amped up BLT that I can’t say no to.
Let’s talk about the elements of a good sandwich…
Bread: Toast it and crispy it up to get the initial crunch for your teeth to sink into, and the added flavor that happens when you butter and grill your bread.
Bacon: Go with the thick-cut! Trust me on this.
Egg: Fry your egg, preferably in your bacon grease. Don’t get all healthy on me now, the egg is going to taste amazing, fat has flavor!
Lettuce: Green leaf, freshly washed, nice and crisp!
Tomato: Slice thickly, use a fresh tomato, smell it first, does it smell good? Then it will taste good!
Cheese: I used Rumiano Mild Cheddar Non-GMO cheese.
My kids were pretty excited about this sandwich, and I said, “What are you talking about? We’ve had this a million times.” They insisted this was the first time they had tried this sandwich. Then I realized… uh… yeah… I usually make this sandwich for me and the hubs AFTER the kids go to bed. So now they have had it, and you should too! It really is that good.

Did you know October is Non-GMO month?
GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism. The risks GMOs pose to our health, families, and planet are just starting to be discovered, and deserve the spotlight.
Non-GMO month is a month dedicated to coordinating the efforts to stand up for our right to know what is in our food and choose non-GMO. The idea is to protect consumer choice and have a non-GMO food supply, preserve and build sources of non-GMO products, educate consumers, and provide verified non-GMO choices.
Rumiano Cheese is a verified non-GMO product! And a great tasting cheese!
So let’s talk about it for a minute…
What I Like
Great Company: Rumiano Cheese Company is the oldest family-owned cheese company in California dating back four generations. They are committed to the organic and non-GMO movement. Their organic line is the first cheese in the US market to receive Non-GMO Project Verification.
Great Flavor: The cheese tastes great! It is described as “mild cheddar” was true to my expectation. It was a perfect compliment to the other ingredients in the sandwich. I won’t lie, I snuck several bites all on its own while preparing the sandwiches. I love cheese, and this cheese is tasty.
Organic and Non-GMO: While I am certainly not one to buy all organic, and the “health foods” store is not my main or sole place of shopping, I do appreciate when a product I want to feed my family is good for them, does not have genetically modified organisms, and is organic. It feels good to know that my kids are eating great cheese made from the milk of happy, grass fed cows!
Options: I loved that I could find the cheese in brick form, as well as slices. I like having options. While brick is a better value, when making a quick dinner, I love having pre-sliced cheese.
What I Didn’t Like
The flavor was spot on, the company great, and the fact that it is organic and non-GMO are all amazing, but with that comes a high price tag. I received the cheese free in order to facilitate this review, and now I am hooked. Which is not going to be great for my wallet. The sliced cheese was about $5.99 at my local Whole Foods, and there were 6 slices in the package. So a buck a slice makes it an expensive option for my family. However, not any more expensive than the other organic, non-GMO options.
