For some, a perfect Valentine's Day includes reservations at a swanky restaurant with an award-winning wine list. And for some, it looks like a bacon-lettuce-tomato-avocado sandwich that's straight from the gods. 

If you cozy up with your valentine and this delicious sammy from Movie Tavern — or if the sammy is your valentine  we see nothing but love in your future. 


Movie Tavern BLTA Sandwich


  • 1 whole grain bun
  • 3 slices of applewood bacon
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 3 big slices of a Roma tomato
  • 2 leaves of bibb lettuce
  • 2 tbsp. garlic aioli


Cook or fry three slices of applewood bacon until crisp.

Toast the whole grain bun until golden brown.

Spread one tablespoon of garlic aioli on the top and bottom bun.

Place sliced avocado on the bottom bun.

Layer on three big slices of Roma tomatoes, or more if desired.

Add three slices of bacon.
