This is my absolute #1 favorite sandwich! BACON * Lettuce * TOMATO * EGG * AVOCADO and a wonderful (but simple dressing).
My husband and I love this for a lighter dinner, especially in the Summer (good with baked potato or sweet potato fries) **
TIP: To slice your avocado ~ cut it in half (the seed will be in one half). Hold the half with the seed in your hand and smack the knife into the seed, which should pull out on the knife. Now, slice the avocado in the skin. Then, using a spoon, scoop around the inside of the skin. The slices should just fall out.
Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, Egg and Avocado
4 slices TexasToast or thick bread (toasted)
6 slices thick-sliced smoked bacon (applewood is best)
1 medium tomato, sliced
1 avocado, sliced *** (tip to slice avocados above)
lettuce (iceburg, Bibb or ruffled)
1 tsp Dijon mustard
3 tsp mayonnaise (I like with olive oil)
salt & pepper to taste
In frying pan, cook bacon until done (we like it crispy) ~ remove from pan and set aside. Fry the eggs in the bacon drippings as you like it (sunny-side-up or over-easy). Season to taste with salt & pepper.
In a small bowl, combine the mustard and mayonnaise. Spread some of the mayo mixture on all 4 pieces of toast. Now layer your sandwich: I like to put a few pieces of lettuce on the bottom; then the tomato; then the avocado; then the egg; then the bacon; and top with another piece of lettuce (this seems to keep the bread from getting too soggy and holds the other ingredients in place) ~ but you can layer as you like it. Cut each sandwich in half and ENJOY!
I recommend a toothpick to hold the 2nd 1/2-sandwich together while you eat … makes 2 thick sandwiches
TIP: I make the bacon in the MICROWAVE. Put paper towels in a microwave-proof dish, then slices of bacon in a single layer. Another layer of paper towels pressed flat on the bacon. Microwave for 1 minute longer than the amount of slices of bacon you're cooking.
