BLTA Sandwich

These sandwiches are perfect for a light dinner or summertime lunch. In my neck of the woods, it’s cold & blustery as winter approaches, but that didn’t deter me from making these for dinner the other night. Also, it’s a good way to use the leftover bacon from breakfast/ brunch.

Ingredients:

  • Sourdough bread
  • Mayonnaise
  • Romaine lettuce
  • 1 Beefsteak tomato, sliced
  • 2 – 3 slices of cooked thick cut bacon
  • Freshly ground S & P
  • 1 avocado, sliced

Preparation:

With the oven on low broil, place the bread on a baking sheet & toast to a light golden, rotating to toast on both sides.

As the bread is toasting, slice the tomatoes into thick slices. Since I’m not a fan of soggy sandwiches, & tomatoes can make bread soggy, I place the tomatoes between a few layers of paper towels & press down to soak up the moisture. Discard the paper towels & season tomatoes with S&P.

Heat up the bacon. If it’s already cooked, 9 – 12 seconds in the microwave does the trick without making it rubbery.

Remove bread from oven & spread a little (or a lot, if that’s your thing) mayonnaise on one slice of bread. Add lettuce, tomatoes, bacon, slices of avocado & top with remaining slice of bread.

Enjoy!
