Emma's Garlic BLAT - i.e. The Best Sandwich She's Ever Made

  • 1 Crusty Bread Roll
  • 2 Smokey Rashers
  • Rocket
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Mayonaise
  • Garlic

Honestly, this is the best sandwich I’ve had in ages.

I think the only thing that can possibly improve the classic BLAT (Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado, Tomato) sandwich is the garlic mayo that I've added below.

This one was so good that I quickly devoured it, while watching House of Cards. Effort here is pretty minimal, but it tastes incredible. Only caveat here is to get good bread… Cheap sliced pan won’t cut it.

When the bacon is almost ready, add the bread roll under the grill for a minute or two on each side to warm it through.
