Happy Friday! Since we’ve successfully made it though the week together, I figure this Avocado BLT a perfect ‘What I Ate’ addition since obviously you do not need a recipe for a BLT. Bacon + Lettuce + Tomato = delicious. I’m going to add a few special touches to an already awesome sandwich. (Check out How Sweet It Is’ Avo BLT from this week too!)
The BLT is a perfect I-ate-some-pretty-bad-for-you-food-this-week option for the weekend,
or a breakfast-versus-lunch tie breaker,
or I-don’t-like-traditional-breakfast-food. It has the perfect grease requirement for hangovers and the ideal fresh factor to make up for unhealthy indiscretions.
I think BLTs are perfect for a quick dinner or even brunch. They’re great on whatever bread you have, rolls, wraps, biscuits, flatbread, bagels, pita pockets, anything!
I added some pesto aioli and some avocado. Perfection! Mix up some mayo and some pre-made pesto. Also, if you refer to it as aioli, even people who think they don’t like mayo will be alllll about it.
I grilled the bacon in a criss-cross lattice pattern. Bacon in every bite! I like it suuuuper crispy but bacon in any form is perfect.
Layer it up! I like it in the order of B then L then T. I added avocado to make it more special, filling, and creamy.
I think there are tons of fun ways to keep a BLT interesting. I think a salad-y wrap would be good too. Maybe the lettuce and tomato in chunks mixed with ranch, avocado, and bacon! Ooo. Yum! A BLT grilled cheese would be delicious right about now. Or maybe a BLT with fried egg on ciabatta! I’ve made BLT pizza (which was to die for). Just goes to show you, BLTs are great inspiration.
What do you do to keep sandwiches interesting? Any BLT variations I should try next?
OMG yum. I want one, now. I am obsessed with avocados lately because they are so BIG, CHEAP and perfectly RIPE all the time here. It’s dangerous.
