Bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches were something new to me when I came to the U.S. Not that we don't eat bacon in Eastern Europe. We just do it differently. A piece of meaty, smoked bacon, with an onion and a piece of bread was common lunch when working in the fields. Perhaps it is because of this that I always visited the salad bar with my BLT to add some red onion slices to my sandwich. It's just absolutely necessary. This version of the sandwich packs a punch even better than my adulterated ones did. The garlic is enough to chase away any vampire, and the flavor is well past the simple, traditional BLT's.
4 slices of whole-wheat bread
1 ripe avocado
2 medium cloves of garlic
1 cup of arugula
6 slices of thick-cut bacon
6 cherry tomatoes
1 tsp Sriracha
Crisp the bacon and remove onto paper towels.
Chop the arugula a little and add to the bread slices. Cut the tomatoes in half and place into the sandwich as well. Serve!
I tried this toasted, like a panini, but the avocado spread's flavor came through better when room temperature. The bacon should be warm though!
