Gourmet BLT with Feta Dijon Spread

Gourmet and BLT don't usually go together in the same sentence, but this secret sauce and the addition of avacados brings the game to whole new sophisticated level. You can't go wrong with a classic, and this version is all kinds of right.

For the spread:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup crumbled feta
8 fresh basil leaves
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp Dijon mustard
salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste

For the sandwich:
1 loaf bakery fresh bread, sliced into 10 thick slices
15 slices of bacon
3 ripe tomatoes, sliced
2 avocados, peeled and sliced
lettuce leaves
salt and pepper to taste

Add ingredients for the spread into a food processor or blender and blend together until finely chopped and combined, set aside in the refrigerator until ready to assemble. Cook bacon in skillet until desired crispness. Toast bread then slather spread onto insides of each slice. Assemble sandwiches by layering on bacon, avocado, lettuce, tomatoes and seasoning with salt and pepper.
