Avocado & Bacon Sandwiches

My mouth started watering when I saw this sandwich on Pinterest. I followed the link to the blog, Panini Happy.  Blogger, Kathy drizzled olive oil on rustic bread and toasted it in a Panini press. I had a  loaf of LaBrea Bakery French bread, freshly baked at Harris Teeter, which I decided not to toast and I used butter rather than olive oil. Pritchard Parker opted out of the butter because he thought the bacon and avocado provided adequate fat. True, but nonetheless, the butter really works. 

These simple sandwiches were surprisingly wonderful. The squeeze of fresh lime juice and sprinkling of sea salt really added the final touch.  I served them with the Citrus Salad I already wrote about. It was a supper we were still talking about days later.

  1. Isn't even avocado alone always just fantastic on toast? With a slight sprinkle of salt. Yum!
