I travel a lot and sometimes some of the best recipes I've come across here on AR have been when I'm heading out again and I do a simple ingredient search for recipes that are quick easy and to use up things I have in the fridge. This was a BLT sandwich LUXE! Over the top good and quite pretty too. I used homemade Italian bread and I confess considerably more of ALL the ingredients than the submitter directed for each sandwich - like probably double. If you aren't as lucky as I was to happen to have leftover guacamole laying around I'm sure that avocado slices would be great too although the guacamole provides incredible flavor. The bacon is a "gimme" in my book as I think no matter what you use it for it makes it taste better! Combine that bacon with good bread the creaminess of the cream cheese more creaminess and flavor from the guacamole the crunchiness of the lettuce and the juiciness of a red-ripe tomato and you've got yourself one outstanding sandwich. I could easily see this as a wrap too either using tortillas or simply large lettuce leaves. So glad for the leftovers and search that led me to this recipe! Read More

You can't taste the cream cheese and the guacamole is too overpowering. STICK TO: MAYO BACON LETTUCE TOMATO on second thought how would sliced banana be on that too....? Read More

I cut the servings back to make just one sandwich. Because I did not have any actual cream cheese at the moment I used Laughing Cow cheese in it's place. Because i'm eating low carb I used one side of a Bagel Thin (sandwich slices). The ingredients for one sandwich fit really nicely on one slice of bagel--I was quite surprized. This was quite good. I'll make this again. Very filling. Read More

This is one "Super" BLT! And to say that is really saying something because I've had a lot of them in my lifetime! Combining bacon, lettuce and tomato is just as classic a combination as peanut butter and jelly in my book. But, this combination of flavors and textures takes this classic to a whole new level! It's creamy and crunchy! I used thick cut smoked bacon, crisp iceburg lettuce, tomatoes seasoned with cracked black pepper, Philly whipped cream cheese, and "Guacamole" by Bob Cody from this site. I put it all on thick slices of toast. If you try this one, prepare your tastebuds for a treat. What a sandwich! Read More

I was pleasantly surprised on how great this was! Although the cream cheese was a nice touch the guacamole is what really set this off. My kids devoured this and neither of them eat guacmole. My husband who is extra picky even enjoyed! We have made this several times since as a quick meal. Really enjoyed. Read More
