B(Bacon) L(Lettuce) A(Avocado) T(Tomato) Sandwich

I was raised on BLT’s. You laugh, but mac and cheese and BLT’s were weekly meals in my house! My mom was a fabulous cook, I learned everything that I know from her...but fabulous cooks have to have easy meals to go to on occasion, and these were hers! When I got married, I couldn’t really make BLT’s unless they only include the B(bacon) and the L(lettuce), who wants a bacon and lettuce sandwhich?! Anyone? Nope! About a year ago, I introduced my husband to the wonderful world of avocados, a world unknown to him before this point. He quickly got addicted and now orders guacamole every where we go! Now, a BLA sandwich is a ton more edible than a BL sandwich, so it was an instant success! I, of course, kept the tomato on mine, and my childhood favorite has been put back into session in my house...just in a different way! O yum, it is so crunchy, creamy, and delicious, and gives me a feeling of home. The best feeling, ever.

8 slices bread (ciabiatta is amazing)
