Avocado BLT Sandwich Recipe

Avocado BLT Sandwich Recipe

This avocado BLT sandwich recipe creates a wonderful lunch sandwich. Everyone loves BLTs… but when you add avocado slices & grill the sandwich bread in butter, it is heavenly!!! Of course, BLTs are even better when they are made with homemade bread from our bacon bread machine recipe. Double bacon deliciousness!

Our BLT is made with bacon, lettuce, tomato, avocado and bacon bit bread. This is an easy sandwich to make. The “hardest” parts of this sandwich recipe are frying up the bacon, grilling the bread in butter and slicing the avocado. If you have a problem slicing avocado, please watch the instructional video below.

BLT Sandwich Recipe Questions

What is a BLT?

A BLT is a popular sandwich made of Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato. The bread slices used in a BLT are usually toasted or grilled. BLTs are also often made with mayonnaise as the sandwich spread. However, BLT recipes vary greatly based on a person’s preferences. For example, BLTs might include additional ingredients (i.e. avocado), use different types of bread (i.e. oatmeal bread or bacon bread), etc. Some BLTs are even made without bacon or use a bacon substitute (i.e. hard tofu) if a person does not eat meat.

What are the benefits of eating avocado?

The first benefit of eating avocado is great taste! Another avocado benefit is that it is rich in potassium, vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K and folate. It also has fiber and monounsaturated fatty acids.

Great BLT recipe especially with the extra avocados.

Mark

Love this BLT recipe. Grilling in butter is much better than just toasting the bread.
