As you-all may know, based on my food blog and food Instagram, I do not have any food allergies.  I am very fortune because that is not the case for a lot of people. This month I am supporting my gluten-free friends and highlighting Celiac Awareness Month. 

Celiac disease is an immune reaction to eating gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.  In lieu of bringing awareness to this serious disease, I am partnering with La Brea Bakery and sharing a tasty recipe.  Founded in 1986, La Brea Bakery, in 2016, was non-GMO project-verified on nearly all of their breads. 

I am such a fan of La Brea Bakery, I am giving you a chance to enter a  stellar contest. In support of Celiac Awareness Month, artisan bread brand La Brea Bakery is hosting a sweepstakes throughout the month of May asking fans to share their La Brea Bakery gluten-free bread creations with their followers.

For this avocado BLT, I used the La Brea Bakery gluten-free multigrain artisan sliced sandwich bread.  This multigrain gluten-free bread has a nutty crust and a soft interior with notes of texture and flavor from flax seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and millet. 

Although this is a gluten-free bread, it was perfect for this sandwich.  I don’t know about you, but I love a good sandwich.  And I firmly believe that a BLT is such a classic. I am sharing my favorite BLT recipe today. Enjoy!

Gluten Free Avocado BLT

 1 avocado 

1 package of thick sliced bacon

On a cookie sheet, add parchment paper and layer of 8 to 10 pieces of bacon.

Bake the bacon until just crisp, about 8 to 10 minutes. 

To assemble, spread mayo on the untoasted sides of bread, then layer the tomatoes, bacon, and lettuce.

Top with remaining slices of bread.

Slice the sandwich in half or in triangles.
