I know this is easy but I'm putting this together for my kids and their kids, and they need some easy recipes to start with.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry the bacon crisp and drain.
  2. Toast the bread.
  3. Spread the mayo on both slices of toast.
  4. You can put a little avocado on one side if you wish. My boys always liked this.
  5. Put the tomatoes, lettuce and bacon on top, with mayo side down; cut diagonally.

Quite perfect this Spring afternoon, as we beckon in a new season! If you don't sit yourself down to this incredibly, tasty, delightful, star sandwich then I don't know what ails ya. Super easy, super g o o d, and super fresh! Oh, and be sure you use the avocado, sends this to a whole new level! Got it? Thanks for posting this, Diena!

I used veggie bacon and left out the avocado(it wasn't ripe yet). When I went to get the lettuce, I discovered there was none, so I used a little bit of some coleslaw I had on hand. It turned out wonderful. Thanks Dienia! Made for the Zaar Stars game.

Who doesn't love a good ol' BLT? I make mines exactly this way but without avocado. I do, however, add a slice of American cheese. For easier cleanup I cook my bacon in the microwave in between napkins to soak up the drippings. Perfectly cooked bacon each time! Next time I'll try your version with the avocado! It sounds good!
