  1. Preheat the grill to high. Mix 2 tbsp chilli relish with the sugar. Arrange the bacon on a foil-lined grill rack and brush with half the relish and sugar mix. Grill for 4 mins, then flip over and brush with the remaining relish and sugar mix. Grill for a further 4–5 mins until sticky and beginning to crisp up, keeping an eye on it to make sure it doesn't burn.
  2. Arrange the avocado over 2 slices of bread and top with the bacon. Spread 1 tbsp chilli relish on each of the other slices of bread, then use to sandwich.
