Open-face Sandwich with Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato

This open-face sandwich is like a BLT – Danish style. However,  I would like to think of it as a bit more nutritious. First, it is made with only a half slice of rye bread and not two slices of white bread. A half a piece of rye bread weighs 22 grams, or a little less than an oz. and has 52 calories,. One slice of white bread weighs 48 grams approx. 1½ oz,, but you need  two slices, and they have approx. 250  calories.   As for the mayonnaise,  one can choose a light version or make a lighter mayonnaise, but either adding yoghurt ,sour cream  or another low-calorie product. You can also make a mayonnaise without  egg yolks.(see recipe  below)
