Garlic Bread BLATS

A side shot of toasted sandwich with avocado, bacon and tomato filling on a white board with some more in back ground.
A deliciously garlicky take on the classic BLT. We love ours for lunch with crispy bacon and creamy avocados, though we’d happily eat them for breakfast too!

Servings 4


  • 4 garlic breads we love Giannis
  • 8 rashers Danish streaky bacon we love Hellers
  • 4 tomatoes sliced (we love Beekist)
  • 8 sweet petite cos leaves we love The Fresh Grower
  • 2 New Zealand Avocados sliced
  • 8 tasty cheese slices we love Mainland
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise we love Best Foods
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp parsley chopped, plus extra for garnish (we love Superb Herb)
  • 2 tbsp tomato sauce we love Chantal Organics
  • 1 clove garlic crushed


  • Turn grill on to 200C.
  • Lay the bacon rashers on a lined baking tray and grill for 15 minutes, flipping halfway through, until bacon is cooked and crispy. Pop on a plate.
  • Cut the garlic spread bread into halves, and heat on a tray in the oven while the bacon is grilling, until golden and hot. Melt cheese on top of breads under the grill for 2 minutes.
  • In a small bowl whisk the mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic and parsley.
  • Spread the mayo mix over the cheesy garlic breads. Top with cos, tomatoes, bacon, cheese, avocado and a sprinkling of parsley. Drizzle with tomato sauce, spike with a skewer and dig in.
