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.
