  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled and thinly sliced

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray baguette slices with cooking spray or brush with olive oil. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp, turning once. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, cook bacon over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes or until crisp; drain on paper towel.
