Bacon and Avocado Sandwiches

Today my husband and I went for an early morning country side walk. The sun was shining brightly, birds were singing, we even saw a large hare bounding up the path. It was the perfect start to the day. All the walking and fresh country air got our appetites going. By the time we got back we were more then ready for lunch. As a treat we had bacon and avocado sandwiches. This is a dream combination and goes wonderfully well with a big mug of tea.

Luna Raye’s Bacon and Avocado Sandwiches (for two)


4 slices of really good quality smoked streaky bacon (we buy ours from our local butcher)

1 ripe Hass Avocado


4 slices of thick whole wheat bread

A pinch of salt

Generous amount of freshly ground black pepper


Cook the bacon in a frying pan until just crispy (but not burnt)

While the bacon is cooking spread some mayonnaise on 2 slices of bread that will serve as the bottom half of each sandwich

Cut the avocado in half and remove the stone

Scoop out the flesh of the avocado and layer it over the mayonnaise on each slice of bread

Add a pinch of salt to the avocado

Once the bacon is cooked layer it on top of the avocado (I don’t drain the bacon on paper towel but you can do so if you wish)

Add a generous amount of black pepper before placing the other slice of bread on top

Cut in half and serve with a big mug of tea

    Yum one of my favourite combinations. Back on a soft diet so today had to have my avocado with smoked salmon on a white bun slathered with cream cheese and topped with thin slice of red onion. Not bad… but then its all good food!
