Gluten Free BLT with Heirloom Tomato and Avocado - Becca Piastrelli

Hey there,

creative gal!

You’ve landed on a post I wrote a few years ago -
back when I was known as The Dabblist and was exploring all sorts of ways I could create beautiful things with my hands. It was a powerful time for me — awakening my creativity after suppressing it for so long — but this space has since evolved to reflect the woman I’m becoming.

There is this sweet little bakery cafe in the town of Petaluma that makes the most incredible BLT I've ever tasted. Hyperbolic, I know, but entirely true. The secret, I've come to believe, is that they only use seasonal heirloom tomatoes and a basil infused mayo. I've been craving this delicious masterpiece for far too long, so I had to make it myself, with the addition of avocado. Because everything tastes better with avocado.

2 slices Gluten Free bread, toasted (I used Rudi's)

1 thick slice Heirloom Tomato

1 lettuce leaf

2 pieces of bacon, cooked crispy

1/2 avocado, sliced

1 tbsp basil mayonnaise (combine mayo and basil in food processor, voila)

basil infused mayo

Amass your sandwich with precision and delicacy. Oh yum.
