Loaded Avocado BLT
My husband invented this twist on a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich. I like to make it with extra slices of bacon; if you want, you can leave the Gorgonzola cheese out of the avocado spread. —Lori Grant, Kingsport, Tennessee

This is so good! Made it for a luncheon and everyone flipped over it - love the combination of flavors. I have made this several times, sometimes just as a salad instead of a sandwich.
