In this healthy BLT recipe, we use a creamy avocado spread flavored with garlic and basil, and add sprouts. Look for sprouted-wheat bread in the frozen section or with other specialty breads at your grocery store. Source: EatingWell Magazine, May/June 2015

My wife and I loved this sandwich. The avocado spread was great. We used turkey bacon and it was still fantastic. The wife will go with light sprouts next time but I enjoyed them as is. Great Sandwich and didn't take too long to prepare. Read More

I love this sandwich. Most of my family doesn't really like avocado but they'll eat the avocado this way (so I put in a little extra). This is super tasty and an easy quick dinner. I'm probably going to start making it weekly:) PS I also added more basil and sometimes more garlic (but a lot of garlic makes it more spicy which I like but others don't always) Read More
