Please don't think me condescending to you dear readers in that I am including a recipe for a B.L.A.T.. I know a B.L.T. or B.L.A.T. is rather self explanatory. One thing I find cookbooks or food blogs good at is reminding you of things that you haven't had for a while and want to eat again. You don't necessarily need the instructions, just the inspiration or the idea.
I did add a bit to the Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado and Tomato with the condiments. Indeed I added a little Harissa, spread very thinly for some chili zing and some smooth real mayo for creaminess. I also gave it some spanish onion and another type of tomato, the sun dried variety which is one of those foods I could never get sick of. I would have put in some sexy baby spinach leaves but they're a rare commodity in our house. You see, I confess that I tend to eat baby spinach like Popeye. So if it is there one day, it will be gone to next having been eaten by me.

Step 1 - Spread harissa and mayonnaise on one side of the baguette, spread avocado on the other
Step 2 - Time to lay the foundations: thinly layer some spanish onion (not too much), tomato and sun dried tomatoes. Then add bacon and finally add lettuce.
Step 3 - Cut into segments and serve (not I really did not need to include that instruction did I? ;) )
