Instructions
  1. First, cook the bacon. For a small batch like this I use the microwave. Line a microwave safe plate with a paper towel and line up the 4 slices on it. Cover them with another paper towel and microwave the bacon for about 5 minutes, until crisp. While the bacon cooks, split and toast the ciabatta bread. Then make the quick mayo. Combine the egg yolk, lemon zest, lemon juice, Dijon and fresh basil in a bowl and whisk it all together well. Slowly pour in the canola oil while you keep whisking until you have a thick mayo.
  2. Then it’s time to assemble the sandwich. Slather both pieces of the toasted ciabatta with a generous amount of the mayo. Seal up any leftover mayo and refrigerate it to use later! Then pile the bacon, tomato and lettuce on and close up the sandwich. Serve immediately for a great lunch!
