Bacon, lettuce, avocado, tomato.  Lunch perfection.  Just remember to put it on wheat bread so it’s “healthy”.

This recipe is scaled for 2 sandwiches.  3/4 of a lb of bacon per person you ask?  Yes.  I am not kidding.

Should all that bacon be thick or thin cut? Applewood or Hickory? Your call. I can’t decide so i use both kinds. 1/2 thin applewood, 1/2 thick hickory. Use more. I once had a blt with 5 kinds of bacon. It was awesome.

4 Meanwhile, prep your veggies. Cut the tops and bottoms of romaine leaves to form bread size pieces, slice the tomato, slice the avocado, toast the bread
