Avocado BLT takes an ordinary BLT and makes it really special. Avocados and a garlicky mayo add extra flavor and richness.
I have had some of the best BLT sandwiches in my life while on vacation. It's funny how many restaurants have their own take on this simple sandwich. Both of my most memorable BLTs have been in the south, and both have held fried green tomatoes.
I make a pretty tasty fried green tomato myself, but it’s a lot of work, causes a lot of grease to splatter and smells up the kitchen. It has to be a pretty special occasion for me to make them.
What do I do when I’m short on time but craving a really good BLT? I replace the green tomato with an avocado and call it a day!
Ok, ok, these BLTs boast a few more changes than simply adding avocados. Of course the bacon is the same, it wouldn't really be a BLT without the bacon! I used spicy arugula for the lettuce, a garlicky mayo and oil infused sun dried tomatoes. Not your typical BLT, but as I said, I was craving A REALLY GOOD BLT!
The salty bacon and the mildly creamy avocado melt together for an unbelievable taste. The garlicky mayo and the sun dried tomatoes are a natural pair.
I use rye bread for a flavorful twist. Rye bread is pretty substantial, so I didn't even bother to toast it, but you're welcome to.
I promise you, this avocado BLT will most certainly change the way you think about BLTs! While I still love my fried green tomato version, this avocado version is tough to beat. And it looks like I'm not the only one to love this combo. Make sure you check out Christina's BLT wrap with avocado.
This isn't just a summery combination either. Once the weather cools down, this is the sort of sandwich that goes perfectly with homemade tomato soup.
