Lunch is normally when sandwiches come out but the other week I was enjoying the fantastic poached eggs on toast with chipotle mayonnaise, bacon and avocado, an open faced sandwich, for breakfast and lunch sure was getting jealous! I was feeling a little bad about the whole situation and I had an idea about how to make things right; I could bring some of that chipotle lime mayo lovin to lunch by adding it to one of my favourite sandwiches the BLT. Just to make absolutely sure that there were no hard feeling I also brought along some avocado and a fried egg with runny yolk; which makes almost anything better.
Although a BLT is really good just the way it is, you can make it even better by adding things. Over the last few years I have done a bit of experimenting with different kinds of BLT's including ones with pesto mixed into the mayonnaise, ones with avocado and ones with fried eggs. Both the avocado BLT and the fried egg BLT are great so I knew that adding both could only make things better. Pesto mayo BLTs are also crave inducing so one with creamy and spicy chipotle mayo could only be good!
I am happy to report that lunch is feeling better now and we can go back to being close friends. The BLT with avocado, chipotle mayo and a fried egg was simply amazing! It certainly is a bit on the messy side with avocado, egg yolk and tomato juices popping out every which way but it is defintely worth it and besides, you can always lick your plate and fingers clean.
