BLT Hummus Sliders

  • 1 (15 oz.) can garbanzo beans
  • 2 tablespoons tahini (sesame-seed paste)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed flat leaf parsley
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

12 Lolita’s Rolls

1 cup Swiss cheese, shredded (any melting cheese)

1/2 lb. John Morrell Bacon, cooked, crumbled

2 cups lettuce, any kind shredded

2 Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced (12 slices)

1 avocado, thinly sliced

Salt and Pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place the first 5 ingredients (through parsley) in a food processor with salt and pepper. Drizzle in oil and process until smooth. Spread some of the hummus on each roll. (Note: Reserve remaining hummus in a sealed container for 4-5 days in the refrigerator for other usage.) Top each roll with some of the cheese. Bake for 4-5 minutes until cheese melts and rolls are toasted.

Divide the bacon, lettuce, tomato and avocado slices between each toasted roll. Serve immediately.

Note: Add turkey, ham, chicken or any lunchmeat to the sliders.
