Chef Tips

This is one of those moments you should make your own mayo.

Preparation

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400. Slice and toast sourdough bread with some extra virgin olive oil.

Step 2
Place bacon on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Baking for about 15-20 until golden brown. Drain the excess fat. Save for later.
Step 3
Assemble sandwich! Spread lemon herb mayo on one slice of toasted bread. Layer on lettuce, then top with slices of heirloom tomato. Season the tomato with a generous amount of olive oil, sea salt, and cracked black pepper.
Step 4
On the other slice of bread, add half an avocado and season with lemon juice. Top the avocado with as many slices of crisp bacon that can fit. Smash the sandwich together, slice down the middle and enjoy!
