Basil BLTs

My guys are away on a camping trip, and I'm practically giddy with the idea that I can eat whatever I want for the next few days.   While both eat bacon, neither likes lettuce or tomato, and both would rather forego the bread.    They can easily put away an entire pound of bacon by themselves, and still be looking for a snack afterwards.   

Since technically this is my "vacation",  I decided I'd make meals easy.  I used Oscar Mayer Fully cooked bacon, something I hadn't tried before.   It was ok, but next time I'd opt for cooking it myself.  I topped it with romaine lettuce, roma tomato, and that fantastic greek yogurt spread.   I held back a little of the chopped basil for photography purposes, and sprinkled it on top (I've yet to master taking pics of white foods).  Thank you to Alisa L for sharing this recipe!
