Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients

For this most delectable of delights, you will need the following:

6 rashers of streaky bacon
2 medium sized tomatoes
1 large handful of lettuce
1/2 a red onion
1 clove of garlic
~100ml of sour cream
Olive/vegetable oil
2 slices of crusty bread

I prefer streaky bacon to regular bacon because I find it cooks better. Most people I know cook their bacon on a low heat, stopping before it goes cripsy, but I like mine with a bit of brown to it. In my experience, streaky bacon goes cripsy better than regular rashers.

Step 2: First stop: the healthy stuff

Firstly, we'll be dealing with the vegetables [and fruit! Tomato is a fruit!] The reason is, we'll be rushing to finish at the end, and vegetables can be dealt with and left out ready, because you don't have to worry about them getting cold.

Firstly, shred your lettuce and slice your tomatoes. This is important - cutting lettuce removes a lot of the crunch from it I find, whereas shredding actually helps it. I like a lot of tomato, and not so much lettuce, so I took one decent-sized handful of the green, and sliced two tomatoes. Make sure you cut them into slices, not wedges, or your sandwich won't stay together when you eat it.

I meant to comment on this 'ible some time ago. I tried this, ate it, favorited it, and plan on making more. I did diverge from the recipe slightly by adding some avocado to placate some friends who thought the creamy awesomeness of the onion sauce was "unhealthy". By the time they ate their first two bites however, they were wiping it from their faces, licking their fingers, using their sandwich to sop up any dribbling sauce that fell on their plates, and asking for more. This is an excellent "gateway 'ible" to the Dark Side.
