Who can resist a classic BLT sandwich? Not many, I'd say. Check out this elegant looking piece of work. You may notice the added touch of sautéed onions. This is the perfect scenario to say "a little goes a long way".

(Makes 2 sandwiches)
1 ciabbata loaf
6-8 strips of bacon
8-10 slices of beefsteak tomato (or any large tomato of choice)
A few iceberg lettuce leaves, torn into large pieces
1/4 onion

  1. Slice open the ciabbata loaf and toast under the grill until slightly golden
  2. Cook bacon in a frying pay until desired crispiness. Remove bacon (do not drain off fat)
  3. Sautée onions in the same frying pan as the bacon, Remove onions 
  4. Rub the ciabbata loaf, open side down, in the frying pan to soak up all the lovely juices
  5. Layer all your toppings into the ciabbata, close and cut into 2 sandwiches
If you feel and hear that bacon crunch as you bite down you know you've done a great job!
