Upgrade your BLT with a Creamy Avocado Spread!

When someone asks if you would like a BLT, your mind instantly goes to the typical sandwich built with super soft white bread, iceberg lettuce, mayonnaise, bacon, and tomato. While the standard version is definitely tasty, the creamy avocado spread will liven up a classic like this.

If possible, it’s always best to make the avocado spread ahead of time. This allows for the flavors to develop. You can also adjust the seasoning before serving. For this recipe, I also used sourdough bread rather than standard white bread. It adds a completely unique spin on this BLT sandwich.

Ingredients to Make a BLT with Creamy Avocado Spread:

  • Avocado
  • Full-fat Greek yogurt
  • Clove garlic
  • Fresh lime juice
  • Ground cumin
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • Bacon
  • Sourdough bread
  • Unsalted butter
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes

How to Make a BLT with Creamy Avocado Spread:

Place the avocado, Greek yogurt, and garlic in a medium bowl and combine thoroughly with a fork, leaving some small chunks of avocado in the mixture. Add the lime juice and cumin, and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Stir to combine and cover tightly. Set aside.

Using a non-stick pan, cook your bacon until it reaches your desired crispiness. Line a plate with paper towels and allow the bacon grease to drain. Let the bacon cool.

Brush one side of each piece of bread with the melted butter. Heat grill pan over medium heat and place bread, buttered side down, on the pan. Apply light pressure to each slice with a spatula, being careful not to move the bread in the process. Once nice grill marks have formed, remove from heat and set aside.

Allow bread to cool slightly, then add avocado spread to 2 of the slices on the non-grilled side. Divide the lettuce, tomato, and cooked bacon slices between the two sandwiches and top each with the remaining pieces of grilled bread. Cut in half and serve immediately with your favorite side dish or potato chips. Enjoy!
