As posted on Boston.com


  • 4 thick slices bacon
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • Squeeze of lemon juice, or to taste
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper
  • 1 small ripe avocado
  • 4 thick slices old-fashioned white bread, toasted
  • 1 tomato, thinly sliced
  • 2 leaves romaine lettuce

1. In a large skillet, render the bacon over medium heat, turning several times, until it is golden brown. Transfer to paper towels.
2. In a shallow bowl, stir the mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, black pepper, and red pepper. Halve the avocado, remove the pit, and scoop the flesh into the bowl of mayonnaise. With a fork, mash the mixture together until it is smooth.
3. Spread the 4 pieces of toast with some of the avocado mixture. To 2 slices, add bacon (halve them to fit the bread if necessary), sliced tomatoes, and lettuce. Cover with the other 2 slices, avocado spread down.
