Featured Recipe: Bacon Sandwich

Hey everyone!

Today I’m featuring a super yummy creation that my friend (and right hand woman), Celia, introduced to me! Over the past three weeks, the hubs and I have been participating in a fast with our church, so we have had to incorporate some non-traditional eats into our everyday menu. This bacon “sandwich” has been one of our favorites! I’m not a huge bacon eater, but there is absolutely nothing quite like the crunch and flavor of a classic BLT. I was pleasantly surprised that this bread-less, pork-less entrée really did make a great substitute to one of my favorite sandwiches! So here’s how we made it:


  • 1 package Turkey bacon (makes about 5 sandwiches)
  • 1-2 roma tomatoes, sliced thin
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tbsp paleo mayonnaise


Paleo Mayonnaise:

  • 1 Large Egg
  • ½ t Sea Salt
  • ¼ t Dry Mustard
  • 2 t Lemon Juice, fresh squeezed
  • ⅔ c extra light tasting olive oil
  • 2 T avocado oil


Step 1: Preheat oven to 400F. While preheating, slice bacon in half.


Step 2: Separate bacon and start weaving 4 pieces to make one slice of “bread”, repeat process until all bacon is woven.


Step 3: Place bacon in oven and allow to crisp up. It will take longer because of the overlapping, about 30 minutes. Carefully flip about halfway through cook time.


Step 4: While bacon is cooking, slice avocado and tomato.


Step 5: Make your fresh paleo mayo.



Step 6: Once bacon is cooked, remove and let cool.


Step 7: When cool to handle, take one piece of “bread” and add avocado. Smash the avocado to make it hold the bacon together.


Step 8: Layer the sliced tomato on top and add paleo mayo.


Step 9: Serve and enjoy.
