BBLTA – Bacon, Blue Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato and Avocado Sandwich

BBLTA - Bacon, Blue Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato and Avocado SandwichI 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 low fat 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.
