I know that you don't really need a recipe to make a great BLT but in my defense, I had to put this yummy BLT/Grilled Cheese sandwich in my recipe index because that is my go-to reference when I do my menu planning and I definitely don't want to forget about this delectable sandwich. If you're interested in the specifics of how I plan my meals - you can check out that blog post here.
Now that we're in the middle of soccer season, I'm relying on hearty sandwiches more than ever. These BLT's make concession stand hot dogs look even more unappetizing. I'm not here to bad mouth the concession stand but these hearty sandwiches are soooo much better. (AND when you pull this sandwich out of your bag, you'll be the envy of everyone sitting around you in the stands.)
The perfect combination of a melty, gooey grilled cheese and the crispy, protein packed BLT. Add a slice of cool and creamy avocado and voila - the perfect grilled sandwich.
Turkey Bacon and Avocado Grilled Cheese
4 slices hearty artisan bread
4-6 slices turkey bacon, cooked
4 slices mozzarella
1 avocado, sliced
1 ripe tomato, sliced
1-2 tablespoons of butter
Grill each sandwich over medium heat until cheese is melted and bread is browned.
I know what you're thinking - only I could take a perfectly good BLT and try and make it healthy(er).
I actually like turkey bacon better than regular bacon so that swap was kind of a no brainer. Oh and I LOVE avocado on almost everything so of course I added it to my BLT. I also like the brightness that the fresh basil adds to this yummy sandwich on hearty artisan wheat bread. I wouldn't go so far as to call this a "healthy" sandwich but I do love this variation on the classic BLT. I think that you will too.
