Simple BLT sandwiches are quite amazing, but when you add dill mayonnaise, avocado and brown sugar bacon, they become something spectacular! Any lettuce will do for this recipe, but I love the texture and flavor of butter lettuce. Try mixing fresh herbs into the mayo too—chives, dill or basil would all be lovely. —Colleen Delawder, Herndon, Virginia

  • 6 thick-sliced bacon strips
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 brioche hamburger buns, split
  • 4 Bibb or Boston lettuce leaves
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 medium tomato, thinly sliced


  1. Place bacon on a rack in a foil-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan; place in a cold oven. Set oven to 350°. Bake for 20 minutes. Sprinkle bacon with brown sugar and cayenne pepper. Bake until sugar is melted and bacon is browned, 15-20 minutes longer.
  2. Meanwhile, combine mayonnaise, dill, garlic powder, pepper and salt; spread over cut sides of buns. Layer bun bottoms with lettuce leaves, avocado, bacon and tomato; replace bun tops.
