BLAT without bread

It worked! And it filled me! What a thrill. After all, there are just some things one still occasionally regrets.
Bacon, lettuce, tomato, avocado and mayo.

That’s it really. Forget a recipe. Grill the bacon, wash and stack a pile of mixed lettuce form your garden, add slices of organic tomatoes (cause they’re not in season here in Melbourne yet), slice an avo and add that, a few dollops of organic mayo and top it all with the bacon.
