So we reached out to Chef Mario Gebran, from U.S. Egg, who’s showing us how to make a one-of-a-kind AVO-BLT with a Twist that will make it straight into your recipe box.


  • 1 oz yellow peppers
  • 1 oz green peppers
  • 1 oz red peppers
  • 1 oz jalapeño peppers
  • 1 oz red onions

  • 1/2 of an avocado
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 3 slices of bacon, cooked
  • 1-2 pieces of lettuce
  • 2 slices of tomato

Finely chop the first six ingredients (peppers through cilantro). Add it to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add in half of an avocado, squeeze the juice of the lime and use a fork to mash everything together until it becomes a smooth paste. Apply the paste to both sides of the toasted whole wheat bread and construct your bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich. Finally, taste and enjoy!
