They are what they sound like. Delicious. Serve as appetizer. Doesn't need too much sauce. Just adds the perfect amount of flavor!

The sugar candied leaving large lumps in the sauce. Did I do something wrong? To my dismay the result was barely edible. I suppose I will give it a second try at some point in the future. In any case I'm not sure this recipe is the best use of such quality ingredients. Combining two great things - avocado and bacon - sounded like a great idea but topping two fatty ingredients with a butter-based sauce just went too far for my taste. I feel the dish needs something dynamic to counterbalance the overwhelming amount of fat. Read More

DELICIOUS! I scaled the recipe back to make just enough for me to have for a light lunch and it was perfect! The dressing is absolutely to die for and that combined w/ the crunchy/salty bacon and the creamy avacado was just right...This is a definite keeper for sure YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I'm always looking for new ways to serve Avocado (a favourite in our house). I tried this last night and it was AMAZING! It was so good that I didn't even have time to take a picture - hubby was into it before I could put it on the table. I will most certainly make these again. Read More

I like the concept but I am not a fan of the sweet sauce. Squeezing fresh lemon juice into it helped cut the sweetness. I will try this again omitting the sugar and adding some lemon or lime juice. UPDATE: I have tried this recipe multiple times now. I found that reducing the amount of sugar instead of omitting completely makes a better sauce to me. I liked it more savory than sweet and didn't need to add any lemon or lime juice. I would give it 4 stars after making the sauce changes but will leave the rating for the recipe as written. Read More

I had to substitute 3 tbs apple cider vinegar for the 1/4 cup red wine vinegar and it was fabulous. definitely a keeper and I will likely stick with apple cider vinegar. Read More

I made this with no changes. It was delicious. The sauce was quite sweet so I may cut the brown suger next time. Definitely making this again. Read More
