BLAT Bacon lettuce avocado tomato sandwich

This week Liz from Bizzy Lizzy’s Good Things wrote about an ultimate BLT (bacon lettuce tomato) sandwich. It inspired my Saturday lunch. 

While I was thinking of replicating Liz’s version I had some left over ciabatta in the freezer as well as an avocado that needed eating. In my mind there is no point wasting good food.
