Whether for a filling lunch or a quick supper, a BLT (bacon, lettuce, tomato) sandwich is good to have in your repertoire. Juicy ripe tomatoes, thick-cut bacon, and crisp greens on a crusty baguette. Adding a little garlic herb butter (in lieu of mayonnaise) and some sliced avocado takes this classic up a notch.
Slice your bread almost in half (this makes for easier eating) and spread the inside with garlic herb butter. Put the bread butter-side down in a heated nonstick pan (you could also grill the bread or use the broiler in the oven). Press it down some, to make sure it gets evenly toasted.
Now it’s just a matter of layering in the B, L, A, and T. This is easier said than done. That freshly grilled bread smells real good, and it’s tempting at this point to abandon sandwich and just eat garlic bread for dinner….if you decide to go down this path of garlicky good-ness, I suggest you serve your bread with a nice side salad. Crisp greens, tomato, avocado and crumbled bacon maybe?
