    Ingredients:
    6 bacon rashers
    1 small tomato, sliced
    1 cup romaine lettuce leaves, torn into small pieces
    1 small vidalia onion, halved and thinly sliced
    1 TB lard
    4 large portobello mushrooms, stems removed
    2 TB (Paleo) mayonnaise
    sea salt and pepper to taste

    Directions:
    Heat skillet/pan to medium and add lard to melt.
    Add bacon rashers and fry until crisp, then remove, place on paper towels to remove excess fat and then chop.
    Reduce heat to low, add portobello mushrooms stemmed side down and sauté for 3 minutes.
    Let cool, arrange chopped bacon, tomato, romaine, onion and mayonnaise on top of one mushroom.
