  1. Step 1

    Begin by assembling the aioli. Whip together mayonnaise, basil, lemon juice, and garlic clove. Set aside.
  2. Step 2

    In a cast-iron skillet, fry the bacon over medium heat, flipping occasionally, until desired crispiness has been achieved.
  3. Step 3

    Remove bacon from pan and fry the egg, sunny-side up in the bacon grease.
  4. Step 4

    Remove egg and set aside. 
  5. Step 5

    Take both pieces of toast and add them to the bacon greased cast-iron skillet. Let each slice cook for a few minutes on each side until the bread becomes golden and toasted.
  6. Step 6

    Once they're crispy, slather each side with the aioli (more or less depending on your love for mayo) and on 1 piece, layer the lettuce, tomato, bacon, and fried egg. Gently top the sandwich with the remaining piece of bread so the egg yolk doesn't burst and then serve immediately.
