:: Bacon Avocado and Sundried Tomato Sandwich

March 3, 2009 at 8:53 am 20 comments

There are quite a lot of things that get me excited about food, but when it comes to sandwich ingredients, the combination of bacon and avocado always has me drooling!  For many of us, lunch often becomes a chore rather than a pleasure, something that keeps us going between the days busy events.  One of the best things you can do in order to ensure processed fast food doesn’t become an option is to prepare in advance.  Some cooked pasta with a little pesto and parmesan will always trump a big mac, plus your body will thank you for it! But when I do have time to eat at home for lunch this is one of my favourite sandwiches to make.

Bacon Avocado and Sundried Tomato Sandwich

Try and choose some tasty bacon from your butchers, it will make all the difference!

Makes 4 tasty sandwiches.
4 rashers of good quality bacon.
1 nice ripe avocado.
4 slices of Irish brown bread.
A little butter to spread.
75g of sundried or sunblushed tomatoes roughly chopped.
A pinch of sea salt and ground black pepper.

Place 4 rashers under a hot grill and cook on both sides till crispy.  Toast 4 slices of Irish brown bread.  Slice the avocado in half, remove the stone and carefully scoop out the flesh.  Slice the avocado into half moon pieces.  Butter the slices of toast and place a rasher of bacon on each slice.  Top the bacon with pieces of avocado and tomatoes.  Sprinkle with a little sea salt and ground black pepper.  Serve straight away.

    I can’t believe you posted one of my favorite sandwiches! I always mash the avocado, though. Little pepper on top and I add fresh roma tomatoes. Will definitely try your version some time.

    This sounds amazing, and I’m sure it would be tasty with any kind of bread, but I’d like to make it your way. I am wondering what the difference is between Irish brown bread and regular brown bread. Do you have an Irish brown bread recipe? Thanks!

    That looks sooo much better than the sandwich I had for lunch today. Bacon makes everything better.

    Great sandwich recipe! But one question: Did you take sundried tomatoes in olive oil or did you soak them in hot water for a few minutes? Just sundried as they are they seem a bit salty to me.

    This has to be the most awesome looking sandwich that I have seen in a long time, I love both bacon and avo, so for me this is just perfect.

  • 18. Donal  |  March 11, 2009 at 3:50 pm

    Hey Brilynn!I know its my one weakness! I love Bacon!Hey Claudia!I actually used sunblushed here- they are a little less intense flavour wise- so could be a better solution if you don’t like sundried.Hey Kim!Thanks! It’s my favourite sandwich!!!
