BLT with Avocado and Basil Mayonnaise
, on Flickr
To make the Avocado and Basil Mayo to our mortar and pestle (I am actually using and iron wood Molcajete) we start with one clove of Garlic, 1/8 teaspoon salt and one Tablespoon olive oil. Then we mash it into a paste.
To this paste we add 1/4 cup fresh Basil that has been roughly chopped. Then we grind it into the paste.
To one medium avocado add the juice of one lime and mash the avocado until smooth.
To the smooth avocado add the garlic basil paste and mix well. Place into the refrigerator for 1 hour.
The bacon gets cooked on a flat griddle on medium low tempature. Cooking in medium low allows some of the fat to render out and make the bacon nice and crispy, perfect for sandwiches.
Time to assemble I used a nice roll, lettuce and tomato. To bad I was not able to get some good vine ripe tomatoes. But summer is coming and I plan to make plenty of BLTís when itís tomato season.
