  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 slices bacon, crisp-cooked (see Tip) and halved crosswise
  • 4 romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1 tomato, thinly sliced
  • 8 slices whole-wheat bread, toasted


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
