Bacon is one of the most beloved foods in our house. When the smell of bacon is in the air, the people I love start showing up in the kitchen with little smiles on their faces.
And when I take that yummy bacon and wrap it around avocado and a little sauteed garlic? I just can’t make enough to satisfy everyone!
These are great appetizers for parties – they look fancy but are simple to assemble. They also work well for those on low carb, gluten free or paleo diets. Yum!
- 10 slices bacon, cut in half crosswise
- 5-6 large cloves of fresh garlic, sliced into ⅛” thick pieces
- 1 large avocado, skinned and cut in 1” cubes
- optional: Tabasco Sauce
- Preheat oven to 375°F, and warm up griddle.
- Place slices of bacon on griddle, cooking the first side until partly done (still soft).
- Flip the bacon slices over then add the garlic slices to the griddle, making sure a flat side of each garlic slice is touching the griddle.
- After a minute, flip the garlic slices and cook for 30-60 more seconds (at most let the garlic brown lightly)
- Remove the bacon and garlic from the griddle quickly so it doesn’t overcook.
- Working as fast as you can, wrap one piece of avocado plus one slice of garlic with a strip of bacon, and secure with a toothpick.
- (Optional: for a spicy bite, put a few shakes of tabasco sauce on each avocado chunk before rolling up)
- Bake at 375 for 3 minutes until sizzling.
- Serve immediately.
