BLTs with Garlic Bacon, Avocado, & Lemon Mayo

BLTs with Garlic Bacon, Avocado, & Lemon Mayo

  • Yield: 4 servings 1x



For the Garlic Bacon:

  • 12 sliced bacon
  • 3 garlic cloves, grated, pressed, or finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Freshly ground black pepper

For the Lemon Mayo:

  • 1 cup mayo
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • Tiny drizzle of honey (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Sandwiches:

  • 8 slices of multigrain bread, toasted
  • The mayo
  • The bacon
  • 2 vine tomatoes, sliced
  • 8 butter lettuce leaves
  • 2 avocados, sliced


For the Garlic Bacon:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Arrange the bacon in an even layer so that none of the pieces are overlapping.
  2. Sprinkle the garlic evenly over the bacon followed by the sugar. Season the bacon liberally with the black pepper.
  3. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy and the fat has rendered. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. It will continue to crisp as it cools.
  4. While the bacon is cooking/cooling, make your lemon mayo and prep your veggies.

For the Mayo:

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

For the Sandwiches:

Toast your bread and then slather the pieces generously with the lemon mayo. Layer the bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, and avocado on half of the bread slices and top off with the remaining bread slices. Slice as desired and serve!
