    • Aluminum foil
    • Wire cooling rack
    • Broiler

    • Small bowl


    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, and top with a wire cooling rack.
    2. Place bacon on rack and bake for 20 minutes or until bacon is browned and crispy; reserve drippings.
    3. Preheat broiler. Cut each loaf of bread horizontally into 1/2-inch slices. Reserve top and bottom of grains bread and center slice of sourdough bread for BLT.

Watch carefully.
    4. Stir together sour cream, mayonnaise and horseradish in a small bowl. Spread one-third of the horseradish cream on each bread slice. To assemble, top bottom bread slice with half of the tomato slices. Season tomatoes with salt and pepper. Add half of the bacon, half of the lettuce and the sourdough bread slice. Repeat layers, ending with the top bread slice.
    5. To serve, secure sandwich with wooden skewers and cut into wedges.
