For roasted tomatoes, preheat oven to 200C. Place tomatoes on a baking tray lined with baking paper, sprinkle with thyme and season to taste. Roast until tender (20-25 minutes). Set aside and keep warm.
Heat lard or oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, add bacon and turn occasionally until golden and cooked to your liking (5 minutes for medium-crisp).
For basil mayonnaise, mix ingredients in a bowl and season to taste. Spread on 2 slices of bread, then top with bacon, roasted tomato and lettuce. Drizzle with pan juices, sandwich with remaining bread and serve.
