The Beautiful BLAT (Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado, Tomato)

August 9, 2008 6:36 pm Published by 1 Comment

Sometimes the simplest things in life can be so lovely. Forgive me in advance for waxing poetic, but today’s inspiration comes from a a couple beautiful photographs by John Shafer (AKA Photo-John) that will surely start any bacon lover down the path to salivation.

Yes folks, the delicious-looking delicacy featured in the photos is none other than a a bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato (BLAT) sandwich. A closer look at the cross section reveals that John chooses only the freshest ingredients with his use of dark greens, juicy tomatoes, ripe avocados, perfectly cooked bacon, and we believe a spread of mayonnaise to top things off.

The bread is a bit tough to define from this angle. It appears to be un-toasted. Hopefully John will give us a bit more detail on the ingredients and tastiness of the sandwich in the comments of this post.

One thing is certain, I’m making one of these sandwiches today for lunch. These photographs make that a necessity for any true fan of bacon.

For you photogs out there, John took the shots with an Olympus E-520. See the original photo posts along with some of John Shafer’s other photo work.
