Avocado, Bacon & Tomato Tartines

With its silken texture and buttery flavor, avocado makes a delicious addition to these open-faced bacon and tomato sandwiches. When selecting avocados, avoid those that feel mushy; a ripe avocado will yield to gentle pressure when squeezed.

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices coarse country bread, each 1/2 inch thick
  • 1/2 cup aioli (see related recipe at left)
  • 2 tomatoes, cut into slices 1/4 inch thick
  • Salt, to taste
  • 8 thin bacon slices, cooked until crispy
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced

Directions:

Preheat a broiler.

Arrange the bread in a single layer on a baking sheet and put under the broiler until lightly toasted, 2 to 3 minutes.

Spread the aioli on the bread and top with a few tomato slices, pressing the tomato into the bread. Season with salt and top the tomato with the bacon slices, then with the avocado and a light sprinkle of salt. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
