I have always been a mildly obsessed bacon lover. Always.
Growing up, my fabulous mom would fry up some bacon to enjoy with over-easy eggs and pancakes every Sunday morning. In a house of 5, I was always a little nervous that I wouldn’t get my fair share of bacon. So, as soon as the plate hit the table, I’d quickly do the math: “hmm …12 pieces of bacon. That means four of us get 2.5 pieces and one of us gets 2 …NOT IT!” I was a sweet, selfless older sister like that.
Like all loyal bacon lovers, I also became a lover of the lunch-appropriate bacon dish, the BLT (bacon lettuce tomato sandwich). I later fell deeply in love with the BLT’s cousin, the BLAT (bacon lettuce avocado tomato). The BLAT became my go-to deli order. While my friends and family would munch on their silly turkey sandwiches, I would be absolutely lost in magical bacon heaven.
This Paleo-friendly BLT has been up my sleeve since …well, since the very beginning of my Paleo journey about 5 years ago! I make it when I want something comforting and quick.
All you need: your favorite bacon, lettuce cups, avocado, a tasty red tomato, and a slather of your favorite homemade Paleo-friendly mayo. If you’d like to really kick this recipe up a notch, I recommend you use this incredible Baconnaise!
