BLAT sandwich

Jump to Recipe

Seriously though…is there anything better than a BLAT sandwich? You know, bacon lettuce, avocado and tomato? I don’t think so either. How about a BLAT sandwich with black pepper aoli? Oh yeah, something really good just got even better!

Making the black pepper aoli

I started the sandwiches with the black pepper aoli. It is simple to throw together, and so tasty! So, start with mayo or Greek yogurt. I usually use Greek yogurt, but this time, for the hubs, we went full fat. I’m not going to lie though, I was loving it too.

Next up is the fresh squeezed lemon juice.

Last is black pepper, and lots of it. Mix it all together and it is ready to go.

Bacon recommendation

Next, let’s get the bacon party started. We love a thick cut black pepper bacon. I picked up this Daily’s bacon at our local Walmart and it was so good! I cut it in half for cooking, this was the perfect size for our bread.

Prepping the veggies

While the bacon is cooking, prep the veggies. Red onions are a must for us.

Then a big fat juicy heirloom tomato. I like it thick sliced for BLAT sandwiches.

Next up was the avocado. Cut in half.

Assembling the BLAT sandwiches

Toast your Texas toast. Layer with the sliced avocados.

  • 1/2 cup mayo You can swap this out for nonfat plain Greek yogurt, it is so much healthier. The full fat version is much tastier though!
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice If you don't like a strong lemon flavor, go with 1-2 teaspoons to start
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper you can use more if you want!


  • Mix all ingredients until smooth.
    Serve on your favorite sandwich.
    Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
