Bacon - Bacon, Avocado, Tomato & Cheese

The start of this month was a bit hit or miss. The bacon, avocado & lime toasted sandwich was a bit ordinary. I wanted to re-visit bacon and avocado to do it properly.

Today’s toasted sandwich was the welcome return to awesome that I was hoping for. It was nom-sational. Cheese and avocado are a brilliant combination as is the tried and tested pairing of bacon and tomato. When you make this toastie (and I highly recommend that you do so) do not forget to add a little bit of salt and pepper. Personally, I find that avocado needs a little bit of seasoning to make it sing.


Bacon, Avocado, Tomato & Cheese

Makes: 2 toasties

  • 50g cooked bacon, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • ½ an avocado, mashed
  • 50g cheddar cheese, grated
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices of bread
  • butter (optional)

  1. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and cook the bacon for approximately 6 minutes or until crispy.
  2. Preheat the toastie maker and butter each of the four slices of bread (optional).
  3. Place one slice of bread, butter side down, onto the bottom grill plate.
  4. Spoon half of the avocado onto the centre of the bread and top with half of the bacon, cheese and tomato. Season with salt and pepper
  5. Place the top piece of bread onto the mixture, butter side up.
  6. Repeat steps 3 to 5 for the other grill plate.
  7. Gently close the lid and allow to toast for approximately 3 minutes, or until the bread has browned sufficiently.
