Another take on the Avocado Sandwich – the BLTAE

12 Jun

I bet you are wondering – what in the hell is a BLTAE??? Well, it’s a new twist on the Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich. But with some avocado and hard-boiled egg added for extra depth of delicious flavor. It’s similar to another avocado laden sandwich I posted last year that is pretty fantastic. But this one is on a different level because of the bacon addition. Bacon AND avocado? yowza. We ate these up for a quick easy dinner with a side of gnocchi that I sautéed with some chives and whole milk ricotta. For me this was bliss on a plate. A great lunch option too. It’s such a simple meal, but so wholesome and filling. And with it being so quick, it’s great for those days that you either don’t feel like doing legit cooking, or you forgot to thaw something.

BLTAE Sandwich

Makes 3 sandwiches

avocado mash – flesh from 1 avocado, splash of lemon or lime juice, a shake or two of garlic salt and 4 green onions (white parts and some green) sliced thin. Mash it all up to combine.

3 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and sliced into moons

2 tomatoes, sliced

12 slices bacon, cooked – 4 per sandwich (I use the precooked variety and just cook it up quickly)

6 slices toasted italian bread

Spread a healthy portion of the avocado mash on one slice of bread per sandwich. Place a layer of hard-boiled eggs, then 4 slices of bacon. Top with a layer of tomato slices and add the second slice of bread. Slice and enjoy!

For my photos, there is no tomato – I don’t eat actual tomatoes, just everything tomato BUT a tomato. I know, I’m weird. Whatever.

    Wow!! Just made one of these for lunch, ate it, and then saw this post. Except I didn’t hard boil. I fried it.. In the bacon grease. Maybe not so healthy but damn good.

      It is super good that way too! I had another post where it was the avocado mash with a fried egg on a cheesy deli roll – no bacon though. But that combo of the creamy over easy egg yolk and the rich avocado…def bliss on a plate. I’m really digging adding green onions too. they’re mild so they don’t overpower any of the other ingredients! They are a great sandwich. Glad you liked it!
