Better because the bread is homemade, the tomatoes are homegrown, and you can put as much bacon on as you want. The first ones we made were actually BCTs (Bacon-Chard-Tomato). The next two times they were BTAs... with avocado replacing the lettuce/chard. Those beautiful beefsteak tomatoes were gifted to us, and we felt that this would be the best way to highlight their fabulousness.
Pretty self-explanatory, but here's the line-up:
- Lightly toasted homemade sourdough bread
- Sliced avocado
- Thick-cut applewood-smoked bacon
- Sliced homegrown tomatoes
Prep all the separate components, draining the tomatoes and bacon a little. I like to layer the tomatoes on top so they don't make the bottom piece of bread soggy.
