Your BLT just got even more delicious with the addition of avocado and basil-infused mayonnaise! Prediction that dinner tonight will be Avocado BLT’s with Basil Mayo!



  • 2 cups loosely packed basil, divided
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice 
  • ¼ cup olive oil mayonnaise
  • 8 slices whole-grain or sourdough bread, toasted*
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced
  • 8 slices center-cut bacon, cooked
  • 1 large, ripe tomato, thinly sliced
  • 8 large leaves of lettuce (romaine works well)


  1. Slice 1 cup of the basil then place it in a small food processor along with the garlic, salt, pepper, lemon zest, lemon juice and mayo. Pulse until combined. 
  2. Spread mayo over toasted slices of bread. Arrange avocado, bacon, tomato, remaining basil and lettuce on four of the slices. Cover with remaining bread slices.


*You can also serve these as open-faced sandwiches as I’ve got pictured above! 🙂

*Feel free use turkey bacon instead of pork bacon, if interested
