A Basil Bacon Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich

Sometimes food can look too good to eat, and this was certainly the case with a recent sandwich consisting of basil, bacon, lettuce, and tomato.

Basil Bacon Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich


  • 2 slices of bread (toasted)
  • a healthy amount of mayonnaise
  • 3 to 4 basil leaves
  • 2 to 4 lovely tomato slices
  • a bit of bacon
  • 2 fresh leaves of lettuce
  • a pinch of salt

How to Excel in the Kitchen:

  1. toast the bread until just a little crunchy on the outside, then let sit until cool
  2. spread a healthy amount of mayo on one side of each slice of bread
  3. put the lettuce leaves on the mayo-side of the bread
  4. add just a bit more mayo to the lettuce
  5. throw in the tomato, bacon, and basil in your preferred order
  6. use a pinch of salt on the tomatoes
  7. close up the sandwich
  8. find a quiet place where nobody will bother you while enjoying the lovely meal

The fresher the veggies, the better the sandwich. It's for reasons like this I plan on dedicating a bit of the yard at the new house to growing some food next year.
