Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Halve, seed, and peel avocado. Transfer one of the avocado halves to a small bowl; mash with a potato masher or the back of a wooden spoon. Stir in mayonnaise, lemon juice, and garlic; set aside. Thinly slice the remaining avocado half.

  • Arrange the avocado slices, bacon, lettuce, and tomato on four of the bread slices. Spread the mashed avocado mixture over the remaining four bread slices; place on top of the filled bread slices, spread sides down.


Tip: To bake pork bacon, place slices side by side on a rack in a foil-lined shallow baking pan with sides. Bake for 18 to 21 minutes or until bacon is crisp-cooked. Drain well on paper towels.
