  1. Cook bacon in the microwave on a paper towel-lined microwave safe plate until crispy, about 4 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together tuna, Dijon mustard, horseradish, relish, and red onion. Season with paprika and pepper. Divide this mixture between the hoagie buns. On each sandwich, place 1/2 an avocado, 1/2 a tomato, 1 slice provolone cheese, 1 lettuce leaf, and 2 slices bacon.

Added 2 Tbsp of salad dressing to help tuna mixture with dryness - made it more like consistency I am used to. Melted cheese on tuna before adding everything else - Delicious! Loved it. Yummy!

I'm giving this recipe 3 1/2 stars as stated. It was ok, not terrible, not my favorite. The spiciness of the tuna mix was nice, but it was pretty dry without any mayo. I added mayo to both slices of bread which did help. Next time I will skip the tuna mixture altogether, and just make a bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato sandwich. I might try adding mayo to the tuna mix and use that, alone, for plain tuna sandwiches. I just didn't like the combination of a BLT and tuna sandwich, I guess.

It wasn't as good as I thought it would be. But thank you for the recipe.

I did forgo the horseradish and pickle but it was easy to make and tasty.

After seeing a previous review that this was a little dry, I doubled the dijon mustard and added 2 tablespoons of mayo. I skipped the horseradish, relish, onion and paprika. A good, basic recipe with plenty of room for experimentation!

My husband loved this I did melt the cheese on top. My husband said one of the best he has ever had.

I was in a hurry, so I just used that new "horseradish" mustard, and made it with "Nayonnaise" (soy based-no cholesterol) and 'veggie' bacon strips that I had from Morningstar Farms(again no cholesterol). Didn't have any lettuce,which would have made it better, but it was still delicious. I used whole wheat buns, too.

Maybe all of the ingredients should be increased (except the tuna) to give it more flavor . . .
