Persea americana

One of my favorite fruits is the avocado. Not only is it delicious, it is loaded with nutrients (and also makes a handy object for pelting communist-minded colleagues). Here is the recipe for one of my favorite, more unusual treats: the bacon & avocado sandwich.

4 slices bacon, cooked
1/2 or 2 slices red onion
Slice of Swiss cheese
1/2 avocado, sliced
Warm crusty bread (Italian or French)

Pile on ingredients in order of your choice; dressing is optional, as bacon and avocado add plenty of flavor on their own. Bon appetit.
