  • About

This simple bacon sandwich can be as great or mediocre as the ingredients you choose to use. Putting it together is utterly simple.


  • 3 or 4 slices of smoked bacon
  • 2 slices bread
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 or 3 lettuce leaves
  • 2 or 3 slices of tomato


The Bread

Brown the bacon in a frying pan. While the bacon is cooking, toast and butter the slices of bread, then spread them with mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper.

The Filling

Stack the lettuce, tomato and bacon on one of the two bread slices and top the sandwich with the other slice. You can poke a toothpick into the sandwich to help it hold together better, then cut it in half.
