I always forget about the tomatoes, and never use lime juice, I also have used countless substitutes for chilli flakes, including Thai sweet chilli sauce and this dish never fails to impress, even my boyfriend - who maintained he HATES avocados liked it and asked when we were having it next - as did his mum!! Absolutely love it!

This was just soooo delicious, even though I omitted the chilli flakes. The previous day I had made some multi-grain bread (in a breadmaker) so I used that for the toasted base. The complete dish was so moorish. Highly reccommended. Will be making many times more.

I loved the combination of avocado and bacon! I didn't have granary bread, I used sourdough instead and I think it tasted much better than granary would.

The chilli in the avocado adds a nice kick and the creamy avocado goes well with the bacon. A favourite of mine is bacon and banana rolls and this is because the creaminess of the crushed banana works well.. the avocado's the same.

Try adding a strong flavoured cheese - chedder or moterey jack melted on the top under the grill - yummo!

I've never been a fan of avocado, but this is the meal that changed my mind. Its well balanced and the addition of lime and chilli flakes gives it a lovely hint of sharpness.
