B.A.L.T. – Bacon, Avocado, Lettuce, Tomato Sandwich

A classic B.L.T. with a little twist! Adding the “A” (avocado) and a creamy spread takes this average BLT up a notch. Don’t skip out on quality ingredients when you assemble this sandwich.

By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Sabra and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.
Have you seen the new Sabra spreads hit the shelves at your local grocery store? I was excited when Sabra sent me all three flavors to experiment with in the kitchen. The flavors are honey mustard, garlic herb, and sea salt and cracked pepper. I had so many recipe ideas running through my head. These spreads will definitely be making an appearance here in the future. With these fresh ingredients and flavors the new Sabra spreads will become a staple condiment in my refrigerator.
BALT - Bacon, Avocado, Lettuce, Tomato Sandwich via RDelicious Kitchen @RD_KitchenWhen it comes to a BLT, you need quality ingredients. I decided just a BLT just wouldn’t suffice and needed a little extra flavor. I turned it into a B.A.L.T. with slices of avocado. I love sandwiches when you can really taste all ingredients in every layer.

To build your perfect B.A.L.T. you have to start out with quality bread. I like a hearty whole wheat bread. Next, comes the bacon. Not all bacon is created equally. Look for pork shoulder bacon, it is a much leaner choice. Pork shoulder comes from a leaner part of the pig (the shoulder) which contains less fat than pork belly, which majority of bacon comes from. Then comes the avocado. You can mash it. I decided to keep it as slices. Whatever you like best! The lettuce I chose was a Boston bib lettuce. The leaves are tender. If you prefer more of a crunch, go for romaine. Of course, this jersey girl has to choose a juicy plump jersey tomato sliced on top.

The part that ties it all together is the Sabra spread. This is a much healthier choice than adding mayo as a condiment. The new Sabra spreads contain 75% less fat than mayo and are convenient for sandwiches now that it is in a squeeze bottle. Of course you can add any of the new flavors, but I wanted to keep it in the simple side and added the sea salt and cracked black pepper.

"BLT" Stuffed Chicken

This recipe is for all the bacon lovers out there. I personally do not like bacon. (I know.. the honorrrr!!) One of my clients I cook for is a big bacon lover, so I decided to incorporate into a dinner instead of just adding it to the side to a morning breakfast platter. Everything in moderation right?

“BLT” Stuffed Chicken

Makes 4 servings


2 large (8 oz) chicken breasts

4 pieces bacon
3 cups spinach
1 cup tomato, diced
1/4 cup onion, diced

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Slice both chicken breast in the middle, not all the way through, to make a pocket for the filling. Sprinkle the inside with pepper.

3. Dice 2 pieces of the bacon. Over medium heat cook the bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon and set aside on a piece of paper towel to soak some of the fat.

4. In the same pan, add the onion, and cook until translucent. Then add the tomatoes and spinach until spinach has wilted. Add the bacon back in and toss together to incorporate.

5. Take the bacon, spinach mixture and stuff it into the chicken. With the remaining bacon, wrap wrap it around the stuffed bacon to hold it together. Sprinkle with pepper.

6. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and bacon is crisp.
