Start by slicing the tomatoes into nice, round pieces. Season them with salt and pepper. Toast the bread till it is crisp and brown. Padma Lakshmi likes to flavour her bacon with honey mustard and then grill it on the pan. If you don't have honey mustard with you, you can just grill it as it is. Time for assembly! On the toasted bread, place the lettuce leaves, tomato slices, and bacon, then again place tomato slices and lettuce. Close the sandwich and BLT is ready!
