Method

  • While the bacon is cooking, wash the tomato, and lettuce thoroughly.
  • Slice the tomato in half and then cut each half into even slices about 1/2 inch thick. Set aside.
  • Cut the lettuce into strips that are about 1 inch wide and no longer than the bread you are using. Set aside.
  • Cut the avocado in half and scoop into a small mixing bowl
  • Mash the avocado with the back of a spoon or fork until it resembles a paste.  Add The Mother-In-Law, the lime juice and mayonnaise and mix thoroughly.
