I’m sure most people have tried a California burger: juicy burger patty topped with guacamole, bacon and usually everything else that goes on a burger. If you haven’t, go try it now. Better yet, make a California BLT instead.
My sister planted an avocado tree in front of our house when we were young, but it took 3 seasons of teenage rebellion, two dogs and one divorce for that thing to finally start producing the sweet, sweet fruit that is an avocado. And man, they were they perfect.
2 tablespoons pico de gallo
1 slice country bread or sourdough
4 bacon strips
Start by frying the bacon strips.
While the bacon is cooking, make your guacamole: cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Slice both sides of the avocado into cubes and scoop out into a bowl using a large spoon. Add the pico de gallo and salt to taste. Mix well, but leave some chunks, texture is everything!
Toast your bread and slice your tomato. When bread if toasted, slather all of that guacamole goodness on it. Top with slices of tomato, bacon strips and romaine. You can add another toasted slice of bread on top of you wish; I prefer open faced BLTs because the top toast scratches the roof of my mouth.
