A Day of Bacon-y Remembrance

It's International Bacon Day!

To celebrate, let's take a look back at my favorite super-quick bacon-y snack: Bacon and avocado "sandwiches." You just need a few minutes and a handful of ingredients:
  • 4 strips of good-quality (preferably pastured) thick-cut bacon
  • 1 medium-sized Haas avocado
  • 1 lime
  • Kosher salt to taste

Step One: Fry up some bacon (or just nuke it.)

Step Two: Whip up a simple guacamole. Mash up the flesh of half an avocado, and cut up the other half into half-inch cubes. Then mix both halves together in a bowl to get a nice blend of chunky 'n creamy. Flavor it with a squirt or two of lime juice and a generous pinch of Kosher salt. (Or use this recipe.)

Step Three: Stack 'em up and shovel everything into your mouth.
