Tea Sandwich: Bacon, Lettuce, & Tomato

0713_bacon_lettuce_tomato_tea_sandwich.jpg.jpg

A mini, two-bite version of a classic BLT. This one is double-stacked and open faced, held together by a cocktail fork.

Notes:
- I used Japanese mayo (Kewpie) for a bit more tang.
- Romaine lettuce would work just well as Boston lettuce.
- I didn't toast the bread since I didn't want to bread to be too dried out.
