BGT Sandwich (bacon, goat cheese and tomato)

The “BGT” (bacon, goat cheese and tomato) sandwich is a variation of the “BLT” (bacon, lettuce and tomato) sandwich. The BGT panini sandwich appears to have been first served at Duckfat, a restaurant in Portland, Maine, that opened in 2005.

“BGT” has also been on the menus of places in Idaho, Massachusetts and Virginia.

Duck Fat & Rachel Ray
Yes, that is Rachel Ray standing in front of Duck Fat in Portland, Maine. While I was visiting Duck Fat, Rachel Ray showed up to film a TV segment. I did not know beforehand that she would be there.

Duck Fat is a small restaurant, a hole in the wall that is worth a visit. They have a very limited menu, basically paninis, salads, soups and Belgian fries. The paninis ($6.50-$13) are very good, especially the Long Island Duck Confit, Grilled Ham and Cheese and the B.G.T. (thick cut bacon, goat cheese & Maine hot house tomatoes).

My panini was just what I was craving — bacon, goat cheese, and tomato (otherwise known as the BGT).

Sandwiches are made with panini bread; choices like tuna melt with Thai chili mayo change seasonally, but the meatloaf and BGT (bacon, tomato, goat cheese) are standards.

BGT salad: bacon, goat cheese and tomato.
SEPTEMBER 11, 2015 by BRYN MOOTH
This perfect summer tomato salad recipe is inspired by a recent trip to La Soupe to grab a bite for lunch. I had a simple tomato salad with bits of crispy bacon and goat cheese. I got to thinking … what if you used bacon drippings instead of olive oil to make a sort of vinaigrette for fresh tomatoes?
