If you've got hamburger buns + turkey bacon + tomato + avocado, you've got one of our favorite simple summer recipes: BLT on a Bun.

Everyone has leftover hamburger buns this time of year. Don’t let those buns go to waste—use them for this tasty take on a BLT!

  • Cook 2 pieces of turkey bacon per person, according to package directions, and drain on a paper towel.
  • Slice the tomato and the avocado; set aside.
  • Toast the buns in the oven or toaster oven at 350° until golden.
  • Spread a thin layer of reduced-fat mayonnaise on the top and bottom of the buns.
  • Layer 2 slices of bacon on each bottom bun, and top with tomato and avocado slices. If you have lettuce on hand, add a layer of that, too.
