Recipes - The BEATS

The BEATS is my version of a BLT.  Instead of the traditional combination of Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato, this sandwich has Bacon, Egg, Avocado, Tomato and Sauce.  I threw these ingredients between two pieces of multigrain bread when I was about 10 years old and have been enjoying it ever since.  It's a bit too delicious.

1 egg
3 rashers shortcut bacon
1/2 an avocado, peeled and sliced
1 small ripe tomato, sliced
1 tbs smokey bbq sauce
1 soft white bread roll
1 tsp butter

Step 1 -  Place bacon rashers in a cold non-stick frying pan.  Place pan on stove top over medium-high heat and cook for 1-4 minutes each side, depending on how you like your bacon. Remove bacon from pan and set aside.
Step 2 - Reduce heat to medium-low and place butter in pan.  When butter has melted, gently crack egg into pan.  Hold the egg as close to the pan as possible and open the shell slowly and gently.  Cook for 1 minute, then carefully and gently flip the egg and cook on the other side for a further 30 seconds.
Step 3 - Halve roll place tomato slices in a single layer.  Season lightly with salt and pepper and spread avocado slices over tomato.  Top with bacon and egg, drizzle with bbq sauce and place lid of bun on top.


I usually make this without egg.
Grilled chicken is a great substitute for the egg.
