The BLT (bacon, lettuce and tomato)

Actually, I always make a BLAT if I can. I personally believe that the avocado is direct, irrefutable proof of the existence of a kind, wise and loving Creator.

I once had the misfortune of eating one of these with a tomato in it. What a shame, it completely missed the mark.


  2 slices bread, lightly toasted
  4 slices thin-cut bacon, well cooked and drained ahead of time
  lettuce torn roughly to dimensions of bread
  2 slices large tomato, paper-thin
  ½ avocado, wedged sliced (thin)
  salt and pepper
  toothpicks for securing the sandwich (optional)


On your work surface, lay out the bread with mayonnaise over each slice. Proceed to build in this order:

Turn the second slice mayonnaise-side down (into the sandwich) and secure with very long toothpicks (the kind with cellophane tassles made just for this purpose).

Last, cut the sandwich however desired and serve.
