BLAT: Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado and Tomato Sandwich

The BLT. God's gift to sandwiches. Throw some avocado in there and go straight to heaven.

This sandwich has been a family favorite for a while now. The key is a crusty roll, crispy thick-cut bacon and fresh veggies.

The first step is to cook the bacon. I use Obi-John Cannoli's approach and bake my bacon in the oven. It cooks evenly, there's more of it and the cleanup is a piece of cake.

Drain bacon and pat dry with paper towels.


Cut yourself some generous slices of beefsteak tomato and ripe avocado. Separate out the romaine lettuce leaves. Warm up the rolls in the oven for a few minutes.

Layer on a good mayo, romaine, tomato and celery salt on one side. The other sides gets mayo, bacon, avocado and cracked pepper.

Fold, slice and serve!
