As @eatthelove shared, we do a BLT party every year. Here's how it went down this year.
  1. 10 lbs of Sichuan bacon sliced 2-3 mm thick
  2. 2 liters of oven-dried tomatoes packed in oil
    I preserve the tomatoes in September because tomatoes in January suck.
  3. 2 half pints of tomato jam
    Plus mayonnaise and Dijon mustard
  4. 3 heads of iceberg lettuce
  5. 6 Pullman loaves sliced 11 mm thick
    Two loaves more than needed
  6. 3 lbs of black-eyed peas
    Lots left over.
  7. 6 large bunches of collard greens
    Some left over
  8. 18 bottles of bubbly
    Plus some other beverages
  9. 1 pot of coffee
  10. 30 people
    We were expecting up to 40 but some were sick
  11. About 60 sandwiches in the end
  12. 8 2-oz jars of bacon fat
    Party favors!
