Avocado, Crispy Bacon and Lime on Toast

Avocado, Crispy Bacon and Lime on Toast

Hey… you… yes you reading this… do yourself a favour and make this recipe.
I use this for a breakfast where I can take my time to savour and enjoy! It is also great for a light lunch, I try and use nice fresh rye bread or a spelt and honey loaf. The addition of butter or margarine is not needed on the toast as the avocado it nice and soft and eliminates the need… in my humble opinion. Try and get the bacon nice and crispy and the fatty bits slightly charred for maximum flavour.

383 per portion
Serves 4:
2 ripe avocados
Juice of a lime
8 slices of streaky bacon
8 thick slices of rye bread (or similar)
Parsley to garnish

Halve, de-stone and slice the avocado into 1cm slices, remove the skin. Place in a large bowl and drizzle the lime juice over, season will with salt and pepper and give it all a good toss and set aside for 10 mins.

In the meantime grill the streaky bacon until well coloured both sides and set on kitchen paper to crisp up.
Toast the thick bread slices then arrange the avocado slices on top, add the crispy bacon over these and lightly spoon over any remaining juice from the bowl. 

Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
