 California BLT Croissant

Hi, I’m Sarah from Chef Next Door Blog and I’ve been brought onto the EpicureanDC team as a recipe developer and writer. You can check out my bio below to learn more about me, see where you can find me, and read more of my work.

Today I’m sharing with you one of my favorite sandwiches. It’s not a fancy or complicated sandwich, but it’s a darn good one. I’m taking the traditional BLT and kicking it up a notch, California style. Using a soft, fluffy croissant as the base, and adding creamy avocado for a little extra kick, you’ve got one flavorful and delicious sandwich on your hands. It’s quick and easy to make, which is great when you’re short on time. Serve it for lunch or even dinner with a bowl of soup or a salad. Enjoy!

  1. All my pregnancy my biggest crave was bacon, I’m trying to lose the baby weight but I’m still craving bacon and this BLt looks fantastic.

  2. I didn’t even have to look at the ingredients, just looking at the sandwich had me drooling. I am so going to give this a try with turkey bacon. I’m like Victoria and don’t eat pork either.
