Bacon, Avocado and Tomato Melt

Bacon, avocado and tomato melt is a glorified avocado toast that doubles as an open-faced sandwich on whole grain bread, perfect for a quick breakfast or lunch.

Welcome to #ImprovCookingChallenge for September, hosted by Nichole Little of Cookaholic Wife.

As a blogging group,   each month we are tasked to come up with recipes that use two specific ingredients. This month the challenge was tomatoes and cheese (which was great since I have been overrun with garden tomatoes!)

Other challenges  I have participated in include asparagus and cream-

So as you can see, we have a  lot of fun  figuring out what to make, and  eat very well at that. And the best part is that you also get to  join in the cooking fun,  now that you have the recipes in hand! And for this month’s selection, just scroll down below the recipe printout and click the blue frog button to  go to the linkup.

Bacon, Avocado and Tomato Melt

For this month, making the bacon, avocado and tomato melts was a no-brainer for me, since I had a lot of tomatoes already. On top  of that, I have been piecing together some things I can eat that are fairly low carb. In this case using some smashed avocado that I got on sale with my beloved bacon and a bit of cheese on Sami’s low carb seven grain bread, but you can use whichever kind of bread you have. This particular one has been working out well  for me. And of course, the cheddar cheese, because it wouldn’t exactly be a melt without it, right? And one can never have too much cheese.

Just ask my Wisconsin Cheesehead husband. Gawd I love that man, not just because he loves cheese either, but it helps. 😉

    • No lettuce, but there is a bit of green. One of my fav sandwiches used to be at a grill who served the best quiche and also a sandwich called the B.L.A.S.T. which was a blt with avocado and sprouts. Wasn’t so very trendy back around 1980 but it was always delicious! And this is close enough at breakfast- and nice and quick too.
