BLT Sliders with Avocado and Chipotle Camp Sauce

Some days don't you just love a simple recipe?

There's something so satisfying about the combination of flavors in a BLT. Each ingredient compliments the other in delicious, mouth-watering simplicity. Juicy tomatoes, crunchy lettuce, crisp, smoky bacon...add a little creamy avocado and a zingy sauce and you've got it made!

Is "zingy" a word? Well, since spellcheck isn't putting up a fit, I guess it must be! It's the best word I can think of to describe the yummy chipotle sauce that pairs so well with these adorable little sandwiches!



BLT Sliders with Avocado and Chipotle Camp Sauce
adapted slightly from Catz in the Kitchen
makes about 6 small sandwiches (feeds 2-3 people for a meal)

Rhodes (or other brand) frozen dinner roll dough
1 egg white
2 TB water
sesame seeds

approx. 9 slices bacon, cooked until crisp and broken into halves
approx. 2 roma tomatoes, sliced.
several lettuce leaves
1/2 an avocado, sliced

3 TB mayonnaise
2 TB Sweet Baby Ray's Honey BBQ Sauce
1/2 tsp adobo sauce (can be found in a can of chipotle chili peppers), or to taste

Follow directions on roll package, placing dough on greased cookie sheet, several inches apart instead of in a baking pan. After the first hour of thawing (before dough begins to rise), flatten each dough ball with the palm of your hand. Cover again with plastic wrap and allow rising to complete (about 3 more hours). Once dough has risen, prepare egg wash by whisking egg white and water. Brush tops of buns with egg wash, then sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake according to package directions.
Make sauce by combining mayonnaise, BBQ sauce and adobo sauce.
When buns are cooked and cooled, slice and toast lightly. Spread sauce evenly on each side. Layer bacon, tomato slices, lettuce and avocado in each sandwich. Enjoy!

Note: You can also use regular pre-made dinner rolls or slider buns or your own favorite roll recipe! Catz in the Kitchen suggests King's Hawaiian Dinner Rolls which are also tasty!
