Avocado BLT Sandwich Recipe
An American classic, the BLT is a lunch-time staple. This recipe adds creamy avocados to balance out the flavors, giving the sandwich a little more depth.
- 6 slices thick-cut bacon
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 slices whole wheat bread
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 2-3 leaves butter lettuce
- ½ vine-ripened tomato, sliced
- ½ avocado, thinly sliced
Begin by cooking the bacon over medium-low heat in a heavy bottomed pan. Once the bacon is crisp and browned, transfer the strips to a plate lined with paper towels.
In another pan, melt the butter over medium heat and toast the bread for about 1 minute per side.
Begin assembling the sandwich by putting mayonnaise on 1 slice of the wheat bread and mustard on the other slice. Layer on the lettuce, tomato, and avocado.
Add the bacon on top then cover with the other slice of bread.
Cut on the diagonal and enjoy!
