The Perfect Toppings for a Broadbent BLT.

Broadbent Pepper Bacon

Tis the season for Fresh Garden Tomatoes, the perfect topping for a Broadbent BLT. My much-anticipated fried green tomatoes were delicious.  Tim Farmer’s Facebook post explained how-to preserve green tomatoes by canning them.  He claims they will taste just like fresh ones.  I see this experiment in my very near future.  Go to Tim Farmers Country Kitchen Facebook page for great cooking tips and recipes.

About a week has passed and my garden has beautiful red ripe tomatoes.  One or two tomatoes are ready for the picking and my BLTs are tasting delicious.  The Pepper Bacon we make here at Broadbent’s is my personal preference for a traditional Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich.  Never fear if you are not a fan of pepper, we have other varieties of bacon.  They include Broadbent Original Hickory Smoked Bacon, Maplewood Smoked Bacon, Applewood Smoked Bacon and two Nitrite Free Bacons.  Visit our website at to view the selections Dry Cured Smoked Bacon | Broadbent Products (

Broadbent B&B Foods

Broadbent B & B Foods, have been producing Old Fashioned Country Hams since 1909. A Truly American Food that has been on this continent since colonial days, it was a staple that sustained many of our first settlers as they moved west. The climate had to be just right to cure hams in the days before electricity, and Kentucky's climate fit the bill! Therefore, the Broadbent family brought those traditions with them and used them to dry cure and preserve their pork. Today, we are still dry curing Country Ham, Bacon, and Sausage like our forefathers did. In modern cuisine, country ham is far from a Staple. It is found on the menus of ritzy restaurants across The United States. While it is still, in fact, Country Ham, it is often cut paper thin, and labelled as Prosciutto; which is used as the center piece for many Charcuterie Boards.
