Gorgonzola B-A-T

So, I received a wonderful basket of Avocados from Mexico recently, and I want to share some simple ways to incorporate avocados into your diet.  I think sometimes with avocados you might see them in the store, and think they are neat and look cool, but what would you do with them?  I mean unless you are having Mexican night, and you whip up some guacamole.  However, there are so many ways to use these healthy, green super fruits!  They are smooth, dense, and a fabulous source of monounsaturated fat.  It's a healthy fat also found in nuts and olive oil.  One way we have used some of the avocados from the box is as a sandwich spread.  Hence my Gorgonzola B-A-T...check it out!

Gorgonzola B-A-T  (Bacon-Avocado-Tomato)

Makes 2 Sandwiches
Ingredients:

  • 4 pieces of bacon
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/2 lemon juiced (TIP: always squeeze some citrus on avocados once the flesh is exposed to keep them from turning brown.)
  • 2 tomato slices
  • 2 oz Gorgonzola (it is a type of blue cheese, use whatever cheese you have or like on these)
  • 2 100% Whole Wheat Arnold Sandwich thins, or any sandwich bread you have
Directions:
  1. Toast rolls 
  2. Smash avocado with honey and lemon juice to make a chunky mixture, salt and pepper to taste
  3. Spread avocado mixture on inside of each roll slice 
  4. Layer on each bottom slice: 4 halves of bacon strips, Gorgonzola, tomato slice, and top with other roll slice!  
You must try this sandwich, it was so delicious!  Or at least the avocado spread, you could use that on any kind of sandwich you like.  You can also add a grilled chicken breast to this and lower the amount of bacon to make a heartier sandwich.  ENJOY!
