B.B.T.A (Bacon, Basil, Tomato & Avocado Sandwich)

I love BLT sandwiches! They were my favorite growing up and they still are. In this version, the basil adds great flavor and the avocado gives it a wonderful taste & texture. I use a par-baked loaf of sourdough bread and bake it right before making the sandwiches so it’s hot & fresh and makes the sandwich extra special. Pair with a bowl of Roasted Tomato Soup.

How to Make a B.B.T.A (Bacon, Basil, Tomato & Avocado Sandwich)


  • One loaf of par-baked bread, baked per instructions
  • Mayonnaise
  • Bacon, cooked until crispy
  • Whole fresh basil leaves
  • Tomato slices, seasoned with sea salt & freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • Avocado slices
  • Havarti, sliced, optional

Cut the loaf of bread lengthwise down the center. Let cool for a minute then add mayonnaise to both sides of the bread, then the bacon, basil leaves, tomato slices, and avocado slices. Add Havarti cheese to really make it special.
