Heidi's Bridge
4 sandwiches

This was Irma Rombauer’s favorite sandwich. To make the inauspiciously named BLAT add 1 large avocado, sliced.

How to Make It

Step 1

Lay out 8 slices of lightly toasted white bread on a work surface.

Step 2

Spread lightly with mayonnaise.

Step 3

Divide tomatoes, lettuce leaves, bacon, and salt and pepper among 4 of the slices.

Step 4

Top with the remaining 4 slices bread, mayonnaise side down. Press together gently and cut in half, if desired.
