The Ultimate Avocado BLT slathered with a Harissa Mayo that takes this sandwich over the top. Bacon and avocado has never tasted so perfect!



  • 12 strips of applewood smoked bacon
  • 2 beef steak (or heirloom) tomatoes, sliced thick
  • 8 leafs of butter lettuce
  • 2 avocados, sliced
  • 8 slices of multibread bread
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 2 tablespoons harissa
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice


  1. Heat a large skillet to medium high heat.
  2. Place bacon strips in the skillet, cook each side until desired doneness. (I cook mine for 3-5 minutes per side so it’s somewhat crispy)
  3. Let bacon rest on a paper towel lined plate to let the grease drip off.
  4. While the bacon is resting, mix mayo, harissa, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and lime juice in a small bowl until combined. Set aside.
  5. Toast the bread in toaster.
  6. Assemble the Avocado BLT: one slice of bread, slather harissa mayo on it, 2 leafs of lettuce, 2 slices of tomato, 3 strips of bacon, half an avocado (sliced), top with the other slice of bread. Serve
