Meals in Minutes — Guacamole BLT

Print Friendly

Most people know that avocados are really fruits rather than vegetables, but until recently I had no idea that avocados are actually large berries that come from the same family as cinnamon, camphor, and bay laurel (for more info on avocados, see here).  Avocados are known for their creamy texture and buttery flavor, and are used in a variety of sweet and savory recipes. 

img_4821-smallMy next Meals in Minutes post is a sandwich – Guacamole BLT.  The salty, crispy bacon and the smooth, creamy avocado pair perfectly, and the tomato and lemon juice really help to brighten the avocado’s flavor.  Since it’s mashed, guacamole is the perfect way to use up leftover avocado.


Guacamole BLT


(Yield:  1 sandwich)


2 slices multigrain bread (or any bread you like)

2-3 slices turkey bacon, cooked

2 large leaves lettuce, washed and dried

1/4 avocado

1/4 c cherry tomatoes, quartered

1 scallion, thinly sliced

1 tsp lemon juice

Dash salt and pepper


Toast the bread.  Mash the avocado and stir in the lemon juice, salt, and pepper; then mix in the tomato and scallion.  Spread the avocado mixture on one slice of bread, then top with the lettuce, turkey bacon, and the remaining slice of bread.
