The Ultimate Bacon & GEM® avocado bagel


  • 1 GEM® avocado, peeled and stone removed
  • 4 slices of streaky bacon
  • 1 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 1 tbsp American mustard
  • 1/2 tbsp chopped gherkins
  • 1 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 2 warmed/toasted bagels
  • A handful of lettuce leaves
  • 1 large tomato sliced
  • Black pepper


  1. Preheat the grill to high. Grill the bacon for 2 minutes on each side or until crispy. While the bacon is cooking, mix the ketchup, mustard, gherkins and mayo together to make a dressing.
  2. Thinly slice the GEM® avocado and squeeze over the lemon juice.
  3. Spread some of the dressing over the base of the bagels. Layer up the lettuce, tomato and GEM® avocado slices and season to taste with black pepper. Top with the bacon, the remaining dressing and add the bagel top. Serve immediately.
