Bacon Avocado Blue Cheese Sliders

Ok….I must warn you that if you like bacon, tomatoes, avocado, blue cheese and mayonnaise, you are going to love these sliders.

I used a super soft wheat roll for this recipe which definitely added to the deliciousness.

These sliders are great for lunch or dinner….they’re also a perfect little sandwich to serve at a get-together or party.

I like to serve these sliders with grapes or sliced apples which go well with the bold taste of the blue cheese.

Here’s how to make it.

Lay out the bacon on a microwave cooking tray or warm skillet.

Sprinkle the pepper on to the bacon (just one side of the bacon is fine).

Cook the bacon in the microwave on a cooking tray, or in a skillet until brown and on the crispy side.

If using a microwave cooking tray, lay a paper towel over the bacon before putting it in the microwave.  The paper towel should lay flat over the bacon as it cooks.

Lay out the cooked bacon on a paper towel to absorb the excess grease and set aside.

Slice the tomato.

Cut the avocado in half.  Remove the seed and use a spoon to remove each half of the avocado….then cut it in fairly thick slices.

Cut the rolls in half,

and generously spread the mayonnaise on each side of the bun.

Break each piece of bacon in half and add 4 pieces (equal to 2 whole pieces of bacon) to each of the bottom sides of the bread.

Then add a slice of tomato on top of the bacon and sprinkle it with pepper.

Next, add the slices of avocado over the tomato,

use ¼ of the avocado slices per slider and sprinkle it with pepper.

Then, add the crumbled blue cheese.

Lastly, add the top of the bun and dig in!

Enjoy!

    Your sliders look delicious…and I know they’re going to be a hit with my family. We raise avocados on our family farm in So. California, so we’re always looking for new ideas. My husband loves blue cheese! Bacon and avocado are delicious together. And my favorite mayonnaise! (I’ve been using avocado instead of mayonnaise lately to cut calories, but the flavor of that Best Foods is worth a few extra calories sometimes.) Thanks for posting such beautiful photos too!

      Hi Mimi, you must have great recipes for avocados…and how fun it would be to have so many available for your family. Great idea to use avocados instead of mayonnaise to cut calories! Avocados are so healthy. I just looked at your website and your avocados are beautiful….they look absolutely delicious. And you even offer mail orders….what a nice gift idea!
