Bacon Lettuce Tomato Sandwich with Herbed Avocado Mayo
Total Time: 35 mins
Makes: 4 servings
The sandwich itself might not be an American invention, but you can find a BLT in just about any diner across the United States. We have given this beloved American staple a makeover with toasted seed bread, roasted bacon, tomato relish, butter lettuce and an herbed avocado mayonnaise. It’s not your average diner’s BLT. (Thank you to our friend Stacey Swanson for creating this wonderful recipe.)
8 pieces of your favorite seedy bread
1 pound of good quality thick cut bacon that you have roasted in the oven at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes or until done
1 package of multicolored baby tomatoes (yellow/orange/red)
1 package of butter lettuce
1 medium ripe avocado
1-2 tablespoons of your favorite mayonnaise
Squeeze the juice from 1/2 of fresh lemon
1.5 teaspoons or more to taste of Frontier Co-op Herb Fest or Garden Harvest seasoning
Pinch of Frontier Co-op fine salt

2. Dice up the baby tomatoes to make a tomato relish.
3. Toast your bread.
4. Simple assembly: Slather your toast with some of that herby avocado mayo, layer on some tomato relish, butter lettuce, and then bacon.
