Ultimate BLT RITZ
1 box of RITZ crackers
4lb pork belly
3lb Heirloom tomatoes
1 leaf lettuce
Sea salt lots
The day before serving take out your pork belly and leave in the refrigerator Uncovered!! Yes I know but it will dry out the skin to allow us the perfect crackling.
6 hours before cooking cover the skin with sea salt. Yes cover it. Please.
Turn oven to broil and remove salt from pork belly.
Place on a baking rack, on a baking sheet slide onto the lower rack of your oven. The top heat should gently cook your belly and crisp the skin. If your broiler is to hot switch to 450 regular heat and finish with broiler to make epic crackling.
Remove and let rest for 20 min.
Carve into thick slabs 1 inch by 1 inch.
Place a touch of leaf lettuce on RITZ, then a slice of tomato a basil leaf and top with shattering crisp pork belly. Enjoy
