B.L.A. (Bacon, Lettuce & Avocado Sandwich)

Growing up BLT's were a staple lunch in my household. CORRECTION: BL's. I don't like raw tomato really so never was a fan of the "T" part of BLT. After many years of bacon and lettuce sandwiches, I finally found a perfect replacement for the tomato- avocado.  

There is something about the creamy, smooth texture of the avocado that compliments the salty bacon. I think it's pretty safe to say it actually enhances it. Everyone has their own variation on the classic sandwich, but I find a good thick, hearty and smoky bacon that is fried to extra crispy, some wheat toast, iceberg lettuce, avocado and miracle whip are the ingredients that make me most happy. If you have a fun variation or know of a local restaurant with a great BLT or BLA or just BL- let me know! In the meantime, if you're making your own, Chow has some great bacon tips just for the occasion.
