These sandwiches are wonderful as is, though you can certainly layer on some sliced turkey or sharp Cheddar if you like. Pick up the best ingredients—a juicy heirloom tomato, fresh lettuce, and good-quality bacon—to ensure the best flavor in this classic sandwich.

Serve with Grilled Yellow Tomato Bisque.

My husband is a huge fan of sandwiches, so he enjoyed this. I liked the grilled onions; a different touch. The "double hit" of avocado (as a spread and then as a topping) was too much for me. I suggest adding pickles.
Great recipe for warm days, was a classic taste. Avocado and Onion are awesome on these BLTs, wouldn't change a thing, except maybe adding some turkey or roast beef for fun, still 5 stars here without the additional meat. Thanks. (why i never thought to add avocado, who knows.)
Absolutely fantastic. I always put avocado on the BLT's - goes beautifully with the salty bacon. Personally I like crunchy, raw, sweet onions & think they make a nice addition
Great summer dinner. I eliminated the onions and added blue cheese. Mix the blue cheese with a little butter so it is spreadable.
