BLT Pockets


20 slices bacon
1 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 ripe avocados, peeled, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
Salt and pepper
4 tomatoes
8 6-inch whole-wheat pitas
4 cups shredded romaine lettuce


1. Line a large baking sheet with paper towels. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, fry half of bacon until crisp, turning once, about 10 minutes total. Place on baking sheet, pour fat out of skillet and repeat with remaining bacon. Let cool; break each slice into 4 pieces.
2. In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, avocado and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Slice tomatoes into 6 rounds and cut each round in half.
3. Cut pitas in half and open pockets. Divide avocado mixture among pitas, spreading evenly inside. Fill each half of a pita with 1/4 cup lettuce, 3 pieces of tomato and 5 pieces of bacon.
