Instructions

  1. Generously spread 1 side of each slice of bread with lemon mayonnaise. For each sandwich, top 1 slice of bread with some of the lettuce, 2 slices of tomato, and 3 slices of bacon. Place another slice of bread on top. Place about 2 oz. avocado slices and about 2/3 cup of lobster salad on top. Place another slice of bread on top and secure with wooden toothpicks.
  2. Cut the sandwich in half diagonally. Present with the sandwich so the filling is exposed.

Lobster Salad

  1. Combine the cooked Maine lobster meat, cooked lobster roe, green onions, celery, cucumber, bell pepper, and parsley in a bowl. Add the lemon mayonnaise. Mix well and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Lobster Salad Yields: 5 cups

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
