Avocado BLT

Let’s face it! Is there a better sandwich out there than a BLT? OK, maybe there is, but for those of you who have never had a BLT, it stands for bacon, lettuce and tomato. 3 simple ingredients that when paired together in a sandwich make for an incredible marriage.

There could be many variations of the BLT, as I chose to do so here, I made an avocado BLT, but the main ingredients for a BLT sandwich are bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise and bread. Normally, iceberg lettuce is used because it has a lot of crunch, however my favorite type of lettuce is butter lettuce.

I also think this sandwich is somewhat healthy. I suppose it all depends on how much bacon you use, but the addition of avocado, definitely makes it healthier. Avocados are great for you, they have a lot of nutrients including fiber and potassium. All that aside, this is a sandwich full of flavor. I chose to use asiago bread which I lightly toasted, then spread a tablespoon of mayonnaise over it. It’s a simple sandwich to make, which would make for a great lunch.

      Hi Jane,
      You spread a tbsp of mayo on each slice, so 2 slices of bread, 2 tbsp of mayo. I added that to the recipe instructions, hopefully it’s more clear now.
      Thanks.
