One-minute warm BLT bread salad

If it’s self-respect you’re after, this recipe is not for you. But if you’re curious about what can be accomplished in one minute in a Science Machine…

1. Tear a wodge of bread into chunks into a bowl.
2. Tear up and add a few strips of pre-cooked, refrigerated microwaveable bacon. For best flavour transfer results, ensure that the bacon is evenly distributed and is touching as much of the bread as possible.
3. Microwave for 30 seconds. The fat from the bacon should begin to get on the bread and start to crisp it up. After the first 30 seconds, stir to ensure the bread is evenly coated in the bacon grease. Microwave for another 30 seconds, or until all the bacon fat is rendered and the bread chunks are crunchy and almost crouton-like.
4. Add a generous handful of butter lettuce, arugula, or any other salad greens to the warm bowl. Stir slightly to coat the leaves in the remaining bacon fat. (If you like the greens just slightly wilted, pop back into the microwave for ~15 seconds more.)
5. Finally, mix in your tomato element in the form of cherry or grape tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, salsa, or even a bit of tomato paste.
6. Finish with pepper and perhaps the tiniest pinch of salt if necessary.
