So let’s talk Blistered Tomato BLT Avocado Flatbread today. I know the calendar says “almost fall” and lots of folk have already transitioned to all things apple, pumpkin and all that jazz. I love fall, apples and pumpkins. As a matter of fact, growing up we used to pick apples several miles from our 1754 farmhouse in Rhode Island. Yup. And the lovely orchard where we picked had a log cabin type lodge chock full of lovely apple-y things to eat. Mostly cider, cider donuts and apple pie. But the best thing was the player piano in the loft. Climb the stairs, insert the music scroll, settle into a quaint wooden booth. Savor apple pie with a slice of sharp cheddar as the piano serenades.
The tomatoes are still ripe on the vine at my house. Lots of juicy red ones. And basil too. And I just happen to be one of those frugal waste-not, want-notters. And as long as I’ve got the goods, I’m gonna use ’em, not waste ’em. And I’m guessing you might have some tomatoes at your house too. Hope you’re game for a quick and delicious, tasty main dish recipe using my favorite Stonefire mini-Naan flatbreads. The size of these mini-flatbreads are just perfect for a single serving, side or lunch portion.
Some summers I have a BLT nearly every day for lunch. Guess what? I didn’t have the first BLT this summer. Don’t know why. So I’ve suddenly been craving one before the garden tomatoes are gone. And when Stonefire kindly sent me their lovely new mini-Naan flatbreads, I knew exactly what I’d make: Blistered Tomato BLT Avocado Flatbread.
They say don’t mess with a classic. And a BLT is definitely a classic. But I just couldn’t resist blistering the tomatoes and adding chopped avocado to this delicious flatbread. Glad I put my earplugs in, didn’t listen to them.
Because the results were phenomenal.
The blistered tomatoes add sweet. The toasted flatbread, crunch. And we haven’t even gotten to the bacon word yet. Need I say more? These were so awesome that last Saturday night, when I was photographing these beauties, Jon opted for Blistered Tomato BLT Avocado Flatbread instead of the burger he’d just grilled. Yeah. These are fast, quick and easy. A healthy and flavorful lunch or dinner for any day of the week.

Sometimes the simplest things are the best! Nothing beats a good BLT, and love your blistered tomatoes. The addition of avocado makes it even better!
There is so much deliciousness going on here. You took BLTs to a whole new level of yummy with the flat bread and addition of avocados:D Yum-o!
Kristen @ A Mind Full Mom says
Last night my husband begged for us to have more BLTs before Tomato season is officially over–this I have to make ASAP. Great twist on a classic.
This looks delicious! I like that the flat bread comes in a small size, just perfect for lunch. I want to use up my tomatoes on this!
This looks right up my alley, Allie! ?. And for any locals reading this, Market Basket has the Stonefire flat breads on sale until Saturday night! It’s a win, win, win in my book. Love the avocado addition too. Thanks for the great idea.

Allie – oooh, I am so loving your take on a BLT! Adding blistered tomatoes and avocado to it is BRILLIANT!!! With those blistered tomatoes, I don’t think I’d even mind if the bacon was left off – but shhh – don’t let bacon know I said that! 🙂 At this rate, I cannot wait to see what classic you mess with next!
Now – I’ve never had “apple pie with a slice of sharp cheddar” and I am so intrigued…
Dear Allie, your BLT looks wonderful and just in time for lunch too. Those blistered tomatoes are beautiful…unfortunately, my tomato plants did not fare well this year, but my neighbors were kind to bring me some of their tomatoes. Garden fresh ingredients always taste so much better…well done my dear. Have a wonderful day. xo, Catherine

Karen @ On the Banks of Salt Creek says
Well you’ve just combined a lot of my favorite foods here. Looks delish! I’m starving right now and don’t have any of these ingredients ….I guess I’ll be headed to town later.
Tina sneed says
this looks delicious! I’m so sad my tomatoes have finished producing!
Mouth watering….want them now. 🙂
Christy Smith says
Just made a gigantic grocery run to a Costco and stumbled upon the very brand of mini Naans …Stonefire and felt compelled to throw them in my cart and theta was before I read your post. Wild. I have all the ingredients but avocado (should have throw those in my cart too…darn it!) so will pick them up tomorrow and voila….a tasty, easy, snack or lunch. Terrific idea!!
Thank you and that is so crazy Christy! Serendipity. Hope you love these. They were a big hit around here. XOXO
Erin @ Miss Scrambled Egg says
Allie – I’m going to try these out with turkey bacon! They look so tasty. I’m getting into the fall spirit. We’re going to the Big E next week! I can’t wait. I think I can hold onto the fresh summer vegetables for a few more weeks though. I’m in love with garden tomatoes this season. <3
Big E????? Lucky you! Can’t wait to hear all about it Erin. I have NEVER been.(Can you believe it?) Have an awesome time!!! xo
Ally's Sweet & Savory Eats says
I’d eat this up quicker than you could say “eat this up!”. BLT’s are my favorite sandwich of all time.
I love naan bread, and I love BLT sandwiches… Amazing idea to combine them… And add avocados! Looks so delicious!
Healing Tomato says
This is a great idea for a flatbread. I would never have thought of putting avocado on it. LOVE this recipe.
Nutmeg Nanny says
Now I’m totally craving this and it’s midnight….haha. Love the use of blistered tomatoes…yum!
Holly N @ Spend With Pennies says
BLTs are pretty much a staple around here… I’ve never thought of roasting the tomatoes before, that looks SO delicious! I love how they’re open faced too, it’s like BLT meets pizza!
Ramya Menon @ War and Cheese says
Those blistered tomatoes look sooooo good! I cant wait to try this, looks pretty easy too. I don’t have access to avocado’s though, will omitting them make a big difference?
That must be tough to live without avocados Ramya. Well, it will be just a little more like a BLT… certainly delicious!
As much as I love the fall and all it’s seasonal fruit and veggies, I am going to be so sad when tomatoes aren’t as abundant and nice as they are now. I love this flat bread – you can’t go wrong with the classic blt, especially when you throw avocados into the mix…love it!
Rachel @ Baked by Rachel says
This is totally going to be lunch. Love it!
