  • Toast bread, and spread one side of each slice with mayonnaise. Arrange lettuce on two slices; top with basil leaf, tomatoes, and bacon. Season with salt and pepper. Top with remaining bread slices, and cut on the diagonal. Serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

For a little variety, add different ingredients to make new sandwiches, like a BLAT (with avocado), a BLOAT (with onion and avocado), or a BBT (with basil instead of lettuce). Note: Raw eggs should not be used in food prepared for pregnant women, young children, or anyone whose health is compromised.
