Butter the outside of each bread slice. Place the bread buttered side down in skillet and layer provolone evenly over two slices. Adjust heat to medium-low. Spread 1 tbsp of pesto evenly over the cheese and top with 3 slices of bacon each. Cook on medium-low to medium until bottoms are golden and cheese is melty. (I find medium-low best to melt cheese while not overcooking the bread) Remove grilled bread from pan and top the cheese side slices with tomato slices. Season tomatoes with freshly ground sea salt and pepper to taste. Top with lettuce and remaining grilled bread. Cut as desired and serve immediately. Recipe Notes- You can use fresh or purchased pesto in this recipe. I do recommend using fresh if possible like my Classic Pesto-Prep time is based on using pre-made pesto and pre-cooked bacon.
