Introduction: BLT With Avocado and Basil Mayonnaise

Picture of BLT With Avocado and Basil Mayonnaise

Summer is coming and as soon as I can get vine ripened tomatoes from the farmers market the cravings for BLT’s will start to rule my life. As much as I love mayo (homemade is better) on my BLT’s the addition of Avocado Basil mayo takes them over the top.

Step 1: Crush Garlic

To make our Avocado and Basil Mayo to our mortar and pestle (I am actually using and iron wood Molcajete) we start with one clove of Garlic, 1/8 teaspoon salt and one Tablespoon olive oil. Then we mash it into a paste.

Step 2: Crush Basil

To this paste we add 1/4 cup fresh Basil that has been roughly chopped. Then we grind it into the paste.

Step 3: Add Lime Juice

To the smooth avocado add the garlic basil paste and mix well. Place into the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Step 5: Cook Bacon!

The cook the bacon on a flat griddle on medium low tempature. Cooking in medium low allows some of the fat to render out and make the bacon nice and crispy, perfect for sandwiches.

Step 6: Assemble

Time to assemble I used a nice roll, lettuce and tomato. To bad I was not able to get some good vine ripe tomatoes. But summer is coming and I plan to make plenty of BLT’s when it’s tomato season.
