Bacon and Avocado Sandwich

One of my favorite easy weekend sandwiches.

At Once Upon A Frittata, the goal is to inspire you to get in the kitchen. That doesn’t always mean fancy meals with long ingredient lists. Simple sandwiches count as cooking too!

I love sandwiches. Period.

I have a few favorite sandwich breads – the ones that I can’t resist buying when I see them on the shelf and that I then bring home and pretty much immediately use to make a sandwich.

I love anything I can put on Pepperidge Farm’s Jewish Pumpernickel “Dark Pump”, like this Bacon and Avocado Sandwich. Second in line is Pepperidge Farm’s Jewish Seeded Rye or Deli Swirl Dark Rye & Pump which I use for my Pesto, Hummus and Cheese sandwich.

I was about to add the very simple tuna and broccoli sprout sandwich to the list of things that go perfectly on these breads but I just devoured the sandwich before I remembered to take the picture.

If you can’t find these breads in your own grocery store, you can buy a 2-loaf pack on Amazon by clicking the links above. I will make about 1 penny if you go that route 🙂

I'm sipping coffee in the morning, reading a cookbook for fun. Always planning my next trip and what I'll eat when I get there. Hoping to inspire others who share my love of cooking and eating, and to celebrate the wonderous diversity of food. I love to explore the world so I'll share my best itineraries and travel tips. Of course, sometimes I'd rather be snuggled up with a glass of wine and a good book so let's discuss those here too. And don't forget to feed the birds!
