Bacon, lettuce, and tomato on toast is just about the perfect sandwich, and easy to make. Most prefer the bacon to be crisp enough that it breaks with one bite. Thick-sliced crisp bacon will give you even more bacon flavor.

Those who like a chewy texture use a hardy baguette that will hold up to the ingredients.

macca says it’s a great sandwich to take on road trips. Put each ingredient in its own container, take along some mayo in the cooler, and assemble when it’s time to eat. (If you’re camping, the bacon can be cooked just before making sandwiches.)

An alternative to sliced tomatoes is tomato relish. It’s nice for variety, says ipsedixit. Fried green tomato is good too. Serve before the tomatoes get soggy.
