These meat free "BLT" bites use MorningStar veggie bacon strips instead of traditional bacon. Not only do they look beautiful, they also come together in no time at all. The cucumber slice makes a great crunchy base. These are great served as an appetizer or enjoyed as a light meal. You can further customize simply by adding your favorite citrus zest or seasoning to the mayonnaise, and then topping with a complimentary herb. For instance, try adding a little lemon zest to the mayonnaise and topping with fresh parsley. You’ll be glad you did.
- 6-8 MorningStar Farms Veggie Bacon slices (or your favorite veggie brand)
- 1 medium English cucumber
- 6 t. mayonnaise
- 1 large avocado, sliced
- 1-2 medium tomatoes, sliced and cut into portions to fit cucumber slices
- ¼ c. cilantro, chopped
Place bacon slices in a single layer in a cold, large skillet. Heat over medium heat. Cook bacon, flipping as needed, until cooked through and crispy, about 5 minutes.
As bacon slices finish cooking, remove from heat and place on a paper towel lined plate to blot. Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, slice cucumber at an angle into 12 slices.
Once the bacon is cooled, break into smaller strips.
Assemble BLT bites by spreading each cucumber slice with ½ teaspoon of mayo.. Add a few piece of bacon and avocado slices. Add tomato slices and cilantro. Serve immediately and enjoy!
