How to make it

  • Mix basil, mayonnaise and butter in processor until basil is finely chopped and mixture is well blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
  • Cook bacon in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer to paper towels; drain.
  • Spread half of mayonnaise mixture over 1 side of 6 bread slices. Top each with 2 tomato slices. Sprinkle tomatoes with salt and pepper. Top tomato slices with avocado, then with bacon strips, onion and lettuce. Spread remaining mayonnaise mixture over remaining 6 bread slices. Place bread slices atop lettuce. Cut sandwiches in half and serve.

    Love the BLT! The Basil Mayo gives this classic sandwich a nice change. And a reason to have a Bloody Mary, I like that...
    Do you not toast the bread? We just always have, never thought about not doing it. (Bookmarked!!!)

    Good all American combo!!! Mayo will set this off. Nice dinner on a hot day with a cold salad.
