Ever since the holidays I’ve been on a thyme kick, I’ve been putting it in everything and this BLT is no different. I also really love lemon and thyme together, so when i saw the lemon thyme plant at Home Depot I, of course, had to buy it! I used lemon thyme on my BLT, but I’m guessing that most people probably don’t have a lemon thyme plant lying around and I’m not sure I would suggest going out and buying one just for this recipe. Instead, I would use regular thyme and some lemon zest. I also used turkey bacon for mine, which seems to get a bad rap, (probably because regular bacon is so delicious!) But you are welcome to use any kind of bacon you want! This is a great dinner or lunch if you are looking for something quick, easy, and delicious, or if you are just looking for another excuse to eat bacon! I hope you enjoy!
- Bacon, turkey or regular
- Avocado, sliced
- Tomato, sliced
- Bread, gluten free or regular
- Lemon thyme, or regular thyme and lemon zest
- Cook the bacon until crispy, a few minutes on each side, I like mine very crispy!
- Toast the bread.
- Spread mayonnaise on the bottom slice of bread, top with a few leaves of lemon thyme, or a few leaves of regular thyme and little bit of lemon zest. Layer lettuce, avocado, and tomato. Sprinkle avocado and tomato with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add the bacon and top with another slice of toasted bread!
