Bacon Avocado and Tomato Sandwiches

Dear Martha, How did you know? This is my most favorite sandwich (which is in the What’s for Dinner section of August Living) in the entire world. I’ve been making these for a long time, and also had a truly fantastic one in Hawaii at a little cafe that used local food and it was fantastic.

This is a simple sandwich to make. Cook your bacon (I use organic when I can find it, and nitrate free when I can’t). Toast some bread. I use whole wheat. Martha says to put mayo on the bread. I put honey mustard on one piece and Miracle Whip on the other. Put the bacon on the sandwich (3-4 slices). Add 1/4 of an avocado, sliced. Next slice your tomato. I pick out the seeds and mushy part and then set my slices on a paper towel for a few minutes. This eliminates the exploding tomato problem you can have if your tomato is too wet and drippy. I use two slices per sandwich. Add tomato to the sandwich. Next add some sprouts. I used some mixed sprouts for this. I always add cheese to the sandwich (usually Swiss) but Martha doesn’t. That’s it. The perfect sandwich.

  2. Yummmm Usually I make BLAT sandwich “Bacon Lettuce Avocado Tomato” with mayo. I’ve never tried it with cheese Miracle whip or honey mustard… but I certainty will next time!

    This looks unbelievably good! I never think to buy avocados, but I can see I’m going to have to start.

    Like the above comment, I eat the BLAT sandwich once in a while. I would have to try it with honey mustard because the bacon and honey mustard combo sounds very good.

    Wow. Looks so good. I can smell the sandwich right about now. Yum.

  6. Love this recipe. I will have to try it! I believe Morning Star Farms bacon is organic and nitrate free, this just became available to us through our new organic grocery!
