Avocado BLT Sandwich

I'm patiently waiting for the tomatoes that I planted to turn red so I can eat them.  Then, I went to the grocery store and saw all these beautiful tomatoes for a total of $5 so I had to get them.  I knew one of the first things I would make with them would be a BLT (Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich).  I saw the avocados near the tomatoes and decided to try to add something instead of mayonnaise on the sandwich for some creaminess.   This was an amazing sandwich and avocado will be a must on my next BLT... or BLat!  If you haven't tried an avocado on your BLT before... it's time to try it. 

2-3 slices of baked bacon per sandwich
3-4 slices of tomatoes
Sliced ripe avocado
Toasted bread

The easiest way to make bacon is to bake it in the oven.  You will get perfectly crispy bacon every time.  Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  You will need a baking tray and some cooling racks placed on top of it or you can use your broiler pan that is slotted
Yummy BACON!!
with a drip pan.  Lay your bacon across the cooling racks.  Place them in the oven for 15 minutes or until the bacon is fully cooked and ready to crumble.  The bacon will be crispy, perfectly straight and all the oil will have dripped to the lower tray.  I love this method. 

Then slice tomatoes and season them with a little salt and pepper.  Slice avocado and squeeze some lime juice on them to keep them from browning.  Toast bread.  Assemble with lettuce on the bottom, then tomato slices, bacon and finally the avocado.  Enjoy.
