BLAT On Lightly Toasted Wheat Bread With Wasabi Mustard & Light Mayonnaise Served With Soy & Flaxseed Tortilla Chips

Occasionally, I just get weary of making *fabulous meals*, so when I need a break, I resort to sandwiches. Sometimes it's soup & sandwiches but in the summer we tend to eat much lighter, so it's sandwiches served with our favorite healthy tortilla chips.

At our house, we think bacon is truly a perfect food, so we use it often. But, our favorite is BLAT (Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado & Tomato) sandwiches and they just got more fun! It seems all the super markets are now carrying a wide variety of flavored mustards and I love the wasabi with a BLAT.

Ingredients You'll Need:

2 Slices of your favorite wheat bread (per person)

4 to 5 slices of jalopeno cured bacon (p/p)

2 to 3 leaves of butter lettuce (per person)

3 to 4 thin slices of fresh tomato (p/p)

5 to 6 thin slices of fresh avocado (p/p)

Wasabi mustard, to taste

Mayonnaise, if desired

Salt & pepper to taste, if desired


1. Assemble sandwiches in any way you find pleasing and serve with healthy chips like these soy & flaxseed tortilla chips.

2. You need not be concerned with leftovers, as there won't be any.

3. In the winter, this pairs nicely with a hearty tortilla soup or a tomato basil soup.

This looks and sounds lovely... and simple. It looks like you have toasted the bread, from the photograph, but I guess it is nice either way.
Now I need to source Wasabi mustard over here in the UK, it isn't a name I recognise.
You are right, bacon is a lovely tasty meat, I love it crispy and well done.

Love Granny

Granny: I'm the same. I love really crispy bacon! Let me know if you can't find the Wasabi Mustard in the UK and I'll be happy to send you some!

I just had to LOL at BLAT! Great looking sandwich. I need to use avocados more often. I'm not sure why I stay away from them as I know that the fat they contain is good fat, but for some reason I don't include them often.
