BLTA | Our favorite summer sandwich!

Our favorite summer sandwich right now is the BLTA - bacon, lettuce, tomato and avocado - on sour dough (no surprise there).

We made these for lunch this past week.

You start with fresh heirloom tomatoes from the farmers market.  These came from Munson Farms.  They have a permanent stand on 75th and Valmont in Boulder.

A perfectly ripened avocado, sliced.

Fresh sour dough bread.

Thick sliced bacon.

Condiments.  We like Mayo and Smart Balance.

We grill the bread...

and the bacon.

THE ASSEMBLY as demonstrated by Hubby.

Spread mayo on the toasted bread.  Hubby likes just mayo.  I prefer a thin layer of Smart Balance topped with a thin layer of mayo.

A layer of bacon.

Heirloom tomatoes.

Another layer of bacon and tomatoes.  I did a single layer on my sandwich.

A layer of avocado.  Then a layer of romaine lettuce.

Hubby smashed his sandwich while cutting it, so it was not photo worthy, but it was tasty!  You'll have to settle for a shot of my single layer beauty, with my extra tomatoes on the side.

It was delish.

Til next time ~ find your joy!
