Main Course: B.A.T. Sandwiches

Servings: 4 sandwiches

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10 - 15 minutes


Swap out lettuce with a layer of creamy avocado to turn classic B.L. T’s. into a more filling meal.

  • 8 slices turkey or chicken bacon
  • 2 slightly firm avocados
  • 2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 4 teaspoons mayonnaise or whipped salad dressing, preferably low fat
  • 8 slices whole wheat bread, toasted

Directions for Preparation

  1. Fry the turkey bacon in a large frying pan until crispy. Set aside on paper towel.
  2. Halve the avocados; remove the pit then then the peel. Place the cut side down on a cutting board and then slice lengthwise.
  3. Spread 1 teaspoon of mayonnaise or whipped salad dressing on one slice of toast. Layer on the tomatoes, avocado and bacon. Finish the sandwich with another slice of toast.

Avocado has a creamy, rich texture similar to butter but is full of healthy, monounsaturated fats. Pick avocados that feel slightly ripe, similar to the firmness of a perfect peach.
