BLT (or BLTA) Sandwiches

10 strips of Bacon, about 1lb (2 per person)
10 slices of bread per person (2 per person)
1 head of Lettuce (I like Romaine)
2 Tomatoes, sliced
1 Avocado (optional)
Mayo, mustard and anything else you like on your sandwich


My favorite way to cook bacon is to bake it in the oven.  So much easier, turns out perfect and easy to clean up. (from


1-Line a baking sheet with foil. This will make cleanup easier later.
2-Arrange the bacon slices on the foil and place the baking sheet on the center rack of a cold oven. (Try not to stretch the slices out. Just gently drape the bacon across the pan.) Close the oven door. Turn the oven on to 400°F. Walk away.
3- Come back 17 to 20 minutes later. As soon as the bacon is golden brown, but not excessively crisp, it’s done. The exact time will depend on the thickness of the bacon slices, and also on how quickly your oven reaches the target temperature.
4- Remove the pan from the oven. Transfer the bacon to another sheet pan lined with paper towels to absorb any excess fat.
Have everyone build their sandwich however they like it.  I serve this with salad.
