Classic food dishes are classics because they have been around a long time and are usually too good as they are to change. However, a slight addition to the usual recipe can sometimes take an old favorite to the next level. I was reminded of this on a recent trip to Idaho. My nephews prepared one of their favorite sandwiches for me. It was a BLT, a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich with the addition of luscious thick slices of avocado.
Yes, I know BLTs with avocado have been a staple for a long time. It is just that this would be a first for me and the boy’s meticulous attention to the details made a sandwich that would be an excellent signature offering from a local deli.
