For the aioli: 

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese

2 tablespoons hot sauce (such as Frank's or Pete's)

1 small clove garlic, grated

Freshly ground pepper

For the sandwiches:

8 1/2-inch-thick slices country-style white, wheat or rye bread, lightly toasted

16 strips good-quality thick-cut bacon, cooked and cut in half

3 large tomatoes, thinly sliced

1 red onion, thinly sliced

4 leaves Bibb lettuce


  1. Make the aioli: Combine the mayonnaise, blue cheese, hot sauce, garlic, and pepper to taste in a small bowl and stir well.
  2. Make the sandwiches: Lay 4 slices of bread on a cutting board. Spread 2 to 3 teaspoons or so of the aioli on each slice, then top each with 8 half-pieces of bacon, a few slices of tomato, some red onion and a single piece of lettuce. Top each with another slice of bread. Slice the sandwiches in half. Photograph by Kang Kim
