Bacon + lettuce + heirloom tomatoes + spicy avocado spread. This is the makings of an ultimate summer sandwich.
You need a good tomato to make a good BLT. And the season is right for picking. I would love to give all the credit to the just ripe, juicy heirlooms but I can’t. Because BACON. Bacon always wins.
Look for the thick sliced bacon, like this one for the best results: Sugar Free Pork Bacon.
This sandwich gets a make-over with a lettuce wrap and a creamy, mashed avocado spread with sea salt and chili flakes. Smoky, salty, crunchy and refreshing for any summer occasion.
- 8 slices of bacon - cooked
- 2 avocados - mashed
- 2 tsp juice lemon
- ½ tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp chili flakes
- 2 tomatoes - sliced
- 8 leaves of romaine lettuce
- In a mixing bowl, combine mashed avocado, lemon and sea salt.
- To assemble the sandwich, stack two lettuce leaves on top of one another. This will give it stability. Then spread the avocado mash and sprinkle with ¼ tsp chili flakes. Layer the tomatoes and bacon on top.
