What you do:
Take a slice of bread and roll it with a rolling pin until it is as thin as possible. Using a cookie cutter, cut two rounds from the slice (each round will be about 1.5" in diameter). Keep going until all that remains of the loaf is a pile of circular cut-outs and a smaller pile of bread cast-offs.
Take a 24 hole muffin tray and place a bread round in each hole...press each one into the tray so it becomes cup shaped. Place the tray into a pre-heated 350 degree oven for about 7-8 minutes (until the cups are brown and crisp).
Meanwhile...fry the bacon. Chop the bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes into the smallest pieces possible...I have to warn you that by the time you have done this with two of the three main ingredients you will be ready to kill yourself...ignore this feeling, it fades as soon as you start eating.
Combine the B...the L...and the T in a bowl, along with a tablespoon or so of mayonnaise. Add some freshly ground salt and pepper and mix together.
Remove your bread cups from the oven and let cool slightly then place on a serving plate...fill each cup with the BLT mixture.
That's it...you could, of course, miniaturize any sandwich in this manner...mini-clubs, mini-egg mayonnaise, mini-prawn cocktail...even mini-PBJB (peanut butter/jelly/bacon) for those who like a sweet and savory mix.
