The BLT Sandwich for the hungry

There is something about the combined tastes of fried bacon, tomatoes, mayonaise and cruchy bread that will bring you to your knees whenever you'r totally hungry.
Or you just need a sandwich.
To me, BLT is the ULTIMATE sandwich. Sorry for the messy pictures.

And it's so easy to make.
I won't have you salivating here any longer, here's the recipe, get the products if you haven't got the yet, and go make yerself a good ol' BLT.
BTW- my first BLT was at the Hilton Hotel :)  Very snazzy indeed, but I'm not a fan of toast bread.

Type of dish: snack, lunch, sandwich
Cost: cheap
Difficulty: easy
Serves: 1
Time: 10 min
Preparation time: 5 min
Cooking time: 5 min

You'll need:
Cutting board, knife, frying pan, tongs or spatula, butter knife, plate

  • a hand- long piece of a baguette, split but not halved. Like a subway sub.
  • half a tomato, thinly sliced
  • 4-6 slices of bacon
  • 2-3 lettuce leaves, clean and dry
  • mayonaise
  • 1 garlic clove
  • S&P
  • optional: few thin slices of onion, leftover shredded chicken

Do it, make it, how:
Heat up your frying pan on medium high. Put in your bacon and fry until it gets smaller, more wrinkly but not golden brown or crispy brown, because it won't be pliable enough. When you get the bacon done, transfer it to your cutting board, and put on the pan your bread. We are going to toast it up a bit so it has a nice crunch. Gently press in the bread so it soaks up the grease from the bacon. Let it fry until golden and crunchy, then remove.
Take the garlic clove, cut it in half and start rubbing it over the crusty bread. This will give it a great aroma. Next, spread some mayonaise over on side of the bread,  and if you have chicken meat, put it over the mayo. Now the tomato slices, use some S&P on them, then the bacon, and the lettuce. Fold the bread together and serve!
