Avocado BLT Sandwhich

I love avocados and I love BLT sandwiches. Here is a combination to love!

·        1 Ripe avocado
·        2 tablespoons light mayonnaise or salad dressing
·        1 teaspoon lemon juice
·        1 garlic, minced
·        4 slices bacon, crisp-cooked and halved crosswise
·        4 romaine lettuce
·        1 tomato, thinly sliced
·        4 slices whole wheat bread, toasted

1. Halve, seed, and peel your avocado. Transfer one of the avocado halves to a small bowl and mash with a potato masher or the back of a wooden spoon. Stir the mayonnaise, lemon juice, and garlic in with your mashed avocado; set aside. Thinly slice the remaining avocado half.
2. Arrange the avocado slices, bacon, lettuce, and tomato on four of the bread slices. Spread the mashed avocado mixture over the remaining four bread slices; place on top of the filled bread slices, spread sides down.
