Easy Avocado Bacon Tomato Canapes Recipe

My husband travels to different countries on missions trips. Well, the first time he went to Haiti, he came back with a serious love for avocados. He would just each them like they were apples. Grossed me out, LOL. I tried a small piece and nope, not me, but thanks for the generous offer, you’re too kind for words. Fast forward few years, I love avocados. I am not sure what it is about them and canโ€™t tell you what happened to change my mind but we always have fresh avocado at home now.

One day,ย I was craving a BLT sandwich and didnโ€™t have lettuce and so I used what I had on hand and that is where these canapes were born. The creaminess of the avocado mixture, spread over toasted bread with bacon and tomatoes will leave you oh so satisfied. Like for reals! Prepare to be WOWED by thisย Avocado Bacon Tomato Canapes Recipe. ๐Ÿ™‚

These open-faced sandwiches are so scrumptious, mouthwatering, delicious and so easy to prepare. However, I would not recommend doing these the night before as the avocado tends to brown quickly. Best if served immediately.

If you also enjoy avocado then you needย to try the Summer Salad with a Homemade Avocado Dressing or the Bacon Avocado Tomato Chipotle Sandwich.ย 

NOTE: This is one of the very first recipes I posted, I am just adding a video to it and bumping the post up. Can you tell which pictures are from the original post and which are new? What a different experience makes (not that I’m saying I’m such a professional now, not at all.). :0)
