  • 1 Pan
  • 1 Knife


  • 1 pack Bacon about 12 oz or 350 grams
  • 2 tbsp Mayonnaise store bought or homemade
  • 1 large Avocado smashed
  • 8 slices Whole Wheat Bread toasted
  • 1 large Tomato sliced
  • Garlic Powder optional


  • Start by frying the bacon in a pan. At the same time you can toast your bread in a toaster or toaster oven. When bacon is cooked, remove and place on a paper towel lined plate.
  • On the bottom bread spread a thin layer of mayonnaise, Then layer the bacon with some tomato layers, followed by some smashed avocado. Sprinkle a little garlic powder if you wish, then cover with the top bread.
  • Slice diagonally because that is proven to make it taste better.


You'll notice I didn't add any salt in this recipe. You can if you wish, but I find bacon more than salty enough for the whole sandwich. Of course, you can adjust and add your own seasonings to your own taste.
