Calories in a BLT

In case you didn't know, April is BLT month. It's the second most popular sandwich in the US (ham is the first), but of course I couldn't just tell you to celebrate with a BLT every day this month without discussing the nutritional value of this traditional lunchtime fave. If you're a huge fan of BLTs, take this quiz to see if they're as unhealthy as they sound.
