- Start by cooking the bacon. I like to use thick cut bacon for this sandwich since there are so few ingredients, each one really needs to count! My favorite method for cooking thick cut bacon is in the oven because it is much less messy!
- Preheat your oven to 400℉ and line a sheet pan with foil. Place each strip of bacon on the pan without overlapping. For thick cut bacon, cook for 12-14 minutes for that perfectly crispy texture. Remove from the oven and place on a few sheets of paper towel and let it cool.
- While bacon cooks, rinse and dry the lettuce and slice your tomatoes. I like a thicker sliced tomato for BLT's.
- Toast your bread in the toaster until golden brown. Spread mayo on the inside of each slice of toast. Assemble the sandwich starting with lettuce, then tomato slices, salt and pepper and then bacon slices. Top with the other half of the bread. Cut the sandwich in half and enjoy!!
