Oh my. This is really and truly my new favorite sandwich – it was messy but SO GOOD! What could be better than really tasty bread with soft and creamy avocado slices, crisp lettuce, sweet vine-ripened tomatoes, salty bacon, and an over-easy egg? I loved the combination of flavors and textures in this sandwich and I can’t wait to make it again.
BLTAE (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, Avocado, and Egg Sandwich):
- 2 slices of bacon
- 1 egg
- Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
- 2 slices of bread
- Avocado slices
- Tomato slices
How to Make a BLTAE (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, Avocado, and Egg Sandwich)
Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp and cooked through. Remove the bacon and nearly all of the bacon grease.
Crack the egg into the pan and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Once the white of the egg is no longer transparent, add 1 tablespoon of water to the pan and cover with a lid. Cook for about 30 seconds or until the yolk is clouded over. Don’t overcook or the yolk will be hard (unless that is the way you like it).
While the egg is cooking, toast your bread then spread each piece of toast with a bit of mayonnaise.
Layer the toast with avocado slices, lettuce, tomato slices, bacon, then top with the cooked egg. Add the other piece of toast on top and serve immediately. Enjoy!
