Guest Post: Portabella Mushroom BLTs by The Girl on Bloor

We have a guest in the kitchen! We’re thrilled to have Taylor of The Girl on Bloor back with us, sharing a fresh, mouthwatering meal that we can really sink our teeth into. We’re hoping the bright flavours of these mushroom BLTs will help usher in the spring weather. 


Hey everyone!

It’s your biggest mushroom fan Taylor here from The Girl on Bloor blog! I’m back at you with another mushroom recipe, because let’s face it, you can never find too many ways to cook mushrooms right? This time I’m bringing you one of my new favourite sandwiches: a healthier version of your favourite BLT (bacon, lettuce, tomato)!


I’ve gone from working as a freelance writer and budding food photographer to starting my own photography business and running my blog full time. No one ever told me how tough being an entrepreneur would be. There seems to be constantly something that needs fixing, and I’m always on-the-go working on a billion projects at once, which requires a lot of different skillsets and the ability to manage my time wisely. That’s where this sandwich comes in: I really need crazy-quick meals to keep up with my lifestyle, and these cute little mushroom BLTs really do the trick.

It’s clear that I love everything about mushrooms, and I won’t hesitate to add them to as many different kinds of food as possible. These sandwiches are no different!
