Bacon Lettuce Tomato Avocado & Egg Sandwich

So I had been waiting for this day for about eleven months. The day when my favorite tomato farmer showed up at the farmers market. These tomatoes were just as I remembered from last season. I couldn’t wait to get home and cut one open. The perfect marriage between acidity and the sweetness.

I did just that when I arrived at home. I ran and got my plastic cutting board to put on top of my wooden one, because I knew the amount of juice in this bad boy would run all over. The first slice was just like I thought, juicy and ruby-red. A little salt and pepper and I was ready for my first bite. As I bit in, the taste of summer hit my palette like an explosion.

Just like the song, bacon, lettuce, and homegrown tomatoes. I had to add a little twist though. On the way home from the farmers market I stopped by our local bakery and picked up a loaf of wild rice bread. Sounds strange, but it’s so good.

My wife gets these great farm fresh eggs from a lady at work, so I decided to fry up one of these for the sandwich. To finish things off a few slices of perfectly ripe avocado will do the trick. I hope you take the time this summer to try one of these. I know it’s not the healthiest thing in the world, but one time this summer won’t hurt. :)
