Bacon Sandwich – Elevated, good and healthy!

Don’t worry, we will not go with the “put a bacon between two slices of bread and cut it diagonally” type of recipe over here. This is a luxury only Jamie can afford. (No offense, we love Jamie Oliver). This is a bacon sandwich lunch recipe we posted for you online, or a dinner recipe, if you will, with bacon bits, because these are easy homemade bacon sandwich ideas.

Now, here is what you will need to have and to do:


  • 8 slices of thick-cut bacon
  • 4 slices of crusty bread (such as sourdough or ciabatta)
  • 2 tablespoons spicy mayo or chipotle aioli
  • 4 slices of your favorite cheese (such as cheddar or Swiss)
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced
  • 4 leaves of lettuce
  • Optional toppings: caramelized onions, sliced tomatoes, pickles, jalapeños
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crispy. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels.
  2. Toast the bread slices until golden brown and crispy. If desired, spread a thin layer of spicy mayo or chipotle aioli on one side of each bread slice.
  3. Layer the sandwich as follows: Place a slice of cheese on each bread slice to melt slightly from the warmth of the toasted bread. Add a couple of bacon slices on one side of the bread. Top with avocado slices, lettuce leaves, and any additional toppings of your choice.
  4. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and black pepper over the toppings for added flavor.
  5. Press the sandwich together gently and cut it in half diagonally or serve it whole.
  6. Enjoy your next-level bacon sandwich immediately while the bread is still warm and the cheese is slightly melted.
