Peppered Bacon, Avocado and Blue Cheese Sliders
Easy to make and full of flavor.
- 8 slices of bacon
- 4 small dinner rolls cut in half (from side to side)
- 1 tomato (medium size) sliced
- 1 ripe avocado peeled, seed removed, meat scooped out and sliced in fairly thick slices
- 4 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
- 2 tablespoons (heaping) mayonnaise (or desired amount)
- ½ teaspoon ground pepper
For the Bacon:
Cooking the Bacon - Lay out the bacon on a microwave cooking tray or warm skillet. Sprinkle pepper on the bacon (just one side of the bacon is fine).
Cook the bacon in the microwave on a microwave 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.
After the bacon is cooked, transfer it to a paper towel-lined plate to absorb the excess grease. Set aside.
For the Sliders:
Generously spread mayonnaise on each side of the bun (on the cut side).
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 on top of 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 serve.
