The first tomatoes from our garden are coming in and inspired today’s sandwich.
Alt in today’s cultural lingo in short for Alternative and also the appropriate acronym for this alternative B.L.T.
Although bacon is tasty it is loaded with sat fat, nitrates and salt. Avocado is loaded with nutrition and healthy fat so it naturally makes a great substitute in this classic American sandwich.
I have added fresh basil to the mix for some added flavor.
If you are gluten-free substitute a gluten-free bread instead.
