Bacon Avocado Blue Cheese Sliders

My inspiration for making sliders comes to me when I see small buns or dinner rolls that look really soft and fresh at the market.

I usually find the best rolls when I’m not looking for them.

It’s when I need slider rolls for a recipe that it’s sometimes hard to find them.

Really good tasting bread makes all the difference in the world when it comes to a good sandwich. 

Fresh soft wheat dinner rolls match up perfectly with the delicious ingredients in these sliders.

Crispy peppered bacon, soft ripe avocado, sliced fresh tomatoes and a pop of flavor from the crumbled blue cheese tastes heavenly with each and every bite of these sliders.

 

Enjoy these delightful sliders for lunch or dinner along with homemade potato salad, macaroni salad or coleslaw.

They also make a wonderful appetizer for a get-together or party.

Let’s check out the ingredients – soft slider or small dinner rolls (wheat or white), crispy bacon, avocado, tomato, crumbled blue cheese, mayonnaise and ground black pepper.

A printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.

Here’s how to make it.

For the Bacon:

Bacon on Microwave Tray

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

Pepper on Bacon on Tray

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

Cooked Bacon on Tray

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.

Cooked Bacon on Paper Towel

After the bacon has cooked, transfer it to a paper towel-lined plate to absorb the excess grease.  Set aside.

For the Sliders:

Sliced Tomatoes on Cutting Board

Slice the tomato.

Sliced Avocado on Cutting Board

Cut the avocado in half.

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

Wheat Dinner Roll on Towel

Cut the rolls in half (from side to side).

Mayonnaise on Rolls

Then generously spread mayonnaise on each side of the bun.

Bacon on Wheat Roll

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.

Tomato Slices and Bacon on Roll

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

Next add the slices of avocado on top of the tomato (use ¼ of the avocado slices per slider) and sprinkle it with pepper.
