Quintessential* Summer Sandwhich

The BLT - bacon lettuce and tomato.  Good anytime, but fresh garden tomatoes in the summer make it special.

Start with good bread.  Lightly toasting the bread gives it a little extra texture to hold together.  It even adds to the taste.

Spread a layer of mayonnaise on at least one side.  ( I like both sides.)

Next add a layer of lettuce.

Thick sliced bacon.

Tomatoes picked fresh from the garden.

* Quintessential word play.  The Greeks thought the world was composed of four elements - earth, wind, fire, and water. The fifth  essence (quint essence) was a pure example.
Also there are five ingredients, bacon, lettuce, tomato, bread, and mayonnaise.
