The classic bacon-lettuce-tomato sandwich is never better than during tomato season, eaten two-handed, with tomato juices dripping to your elbows. Serve with potato salad, corn-on-the-cob and sweet pickle spears. And plenty of napkins.
12 strips bacon, cooked
12 slices whole wheat bread
1/2 cup mayonnaise, reduced-fat
4 leaves lettuce
2 large tomatoes, cored, each sliced into 6 slices
Spread 1 slice bread with 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise; top with a lettuce leaf. Spread 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise on each side of another bread slice; place on lettuce. Top with 3 slices tomato and 3 strips bacon. Spread a third slice of bread with 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise. Invert bread on bacon and press down gently. Cut each sandwich in half or in quarters.
