  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 2 avocados, halved and peeled, seed removed
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp whole-egg mayonnaise
  • 6 pieces cos lettuce
  • 4 slices tomatoes
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds (optional)


  • Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large non-stick frying pan on a medium heat.
  • Add the bacon. When the fat melts from the bacon, increase the heat and cook for 1-3 mins on each side, depending on how crispy you like. Set the cooked bacon aside on a paper towel.
  • Using the same pan, reduce heat to medium and crack in the eggs. Fry them in the bacon fat for 3 minutes, or until the white is set, then flip and cook for another 3 minutes.  Set aside with the bacon.
  • Season the avocado halves with salt and pepper and spread each with 2 teaspoons of mayonnaise.
  • Fill two of the avocado half with 3 pieces cos lettuce, 2 slices of tomato, 2 slices of cooked bacon, 1 fried egg, and another pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Place the two remaining avocado halves on top to close your avocado BLT, garnish each avocado BLT with the sesame seeds and eat and enjoy.


For variety, try adding fried haloumi.
We recommend making mayonnaise to avoid seed oils in store-bought versions.
