    Brown Sugar Bacon BLT Sandwiches

    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
