BBLTA – Bacon, Blue Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato and Avocado Sandwich
I made these sandwiches for lunch today and my son and I LOVED them. I have always loved BLT sandwiches and can’t believe I’ve never added blue cheese to them before now. I used avocado instead of mayonnaise, a flavorful blue cheese, really lean bacon, and a sandwich thin to keep this sandwich a bit healthier. I loved the crunchy bacon with the soft tomatoes and the crisp lettuce with the creamy cheese and avocado. This sandwich is quick and very easy to make and is filled with wonderful flavors and textures.
BBLTA – Bacon, Blue Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato, and Avocado Sandwich:
- 2 slices of bacon (or turkey bacon)
- Tomato slices
- 1 tbsp of blue cheese (more if you want)
- Avocado slices
- Romaine lettuce
- Sandwich Thin
- Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
How to Make a BBLTA – Bacon, Blue Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato and Avocado Sandwich
Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp. Place on a paper towel.
Toast your sandwich thin. Spread a few avocado slices onto each side of the sandwich thin and spread until evenly coated.
Layer the sandwich with the lettuce, bacon, tomato slices, blue cheese crumbles then season with freshly cracked black pepper, and top with the other sandwich thin. Enjoy.

Blue cheese is a great variation! Your sandwich looks so pretty with the berries on the plate, too.
Awesome looking sandwich! Not a blue cheese fan myself but I can see where that would be an interesting variation. LOVE the avocado though!
This is my kind of sandwich. Nom nom nom nom!!!! Double the avocado on mine. 🙂
I would be thrilled to eat this sandwich! I love avocado, bacon and blue cheese together!
Beautiful sandwich pam..

A fantastic sandwich, my dear!
I so love avocado in a normal BLT & to add blue cheese,…waw,..for the tastebuds!
Lovely and much more healthier version of BLT.
This has all my favourite flavours in it so it is a must. Diane

GREAT twist on the BLT, Pam. It really looks scrumptious! I'm sure there isn't a crumb left…
Thanks for sharing…
Yum! We did something similar recently too…just used dolce gorgonzola rather than blue cheese. Love the bread choice as well…you can never go wrong with bacon :o)
I also love blue cheese, and also can't believe I haven't thought of this either! You have to admit though, BBLTA doesn't exactly roll off the tongue like BLT.. 😉
Yum! I love using avacado in place of mayo on just about everything.
Pam I love avocado sandwich, this look awesome, gloria
Beautiful sandwich. Where do you find that bread?
An excellent sandwich! I love the blue cheese here!
Huh. Never would have thought to add blue cheese. Well done!
OMG this is seriously the holy grail of sandwiches! I can't wait to try it this weekend. 🙂
Yummy healthy and tasty together.
I'm not normally a blue cheese fan, but I bet in this application I'd enjoy it. Looks awesome!
I am in love with sandwich thins. Best invention ever..ha!
What an awesome modification of a classic! I love what you've done with it!
Delicious! This almost sounds like a cobb salad on a bun. Good sandwiches are a weakness of mine.
I am positive that I would love this too! Yum! I really love those sandwich thins also.
Now, THAT'S what I'm talkin' about! Perfect sandwich for those warm summer evenings! (comin' soon to a city near you!)
Now that is a perfect sandwich! I can't get enough of avocados lately!
it doesn't roll off the tongue quite as well as blt, but i have no doubt that it tastes better!
My nose started twitching at the mention of bacon.
Aren't BLT's the best!?! Wow….with blue cheese?? That's one I have to try. And don't you just love those sandwich thins? The bagel thins are pretty good…especially the "Everything" variety.
Look, I know everyone says "that made my mouth water" over your pictures, but I am totally serious. I am not taking literary license. MY MOUTH WATERED thinking about this sandwich. Blue cheese? FREAKING GENIUS!
This looks delicious!
Sandwich thins are my new favorite! 🙂
Blue cheese, bacon and avocado. My three favorite foods all together?!! Oh I'm over joyed! Question. Where do you find low fat blue cheese? I haven't been able to locate it. Thanks!
