Make

  1. Heat oven to 375F / 190C degrees.
  2. Line a sheet pan with foil and add bacon in a single layer. Cook bacon in oven until golden brown and crisp, 12 to 15 minutes. Pour off extra bacon grease during cooking if needed (to prevent bacon from being submerged in oil).
  3. While bacon is cooking, place green beans in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover with a damp paper towel and microwave on high until tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Toss green beans with vinaigrette. Season with some salt and pepper.
  5. Toast bread.
  6. Assemble sandwiches by spreading mashed avocado on half the bread slices. Top with tomatoes, lettuce, bacon, and remaining slices of bread. Serve with green beans on the side and enjoy!

Kids were not as much of a fan of this meal as the two adults, but overall the flavors worked well together.
