Ballard's Idaho Golden Greek Bread-less Cocktail Sandwiches
By Chef Jane Deal

1 pkg. thick-cut bacon
1 avocado, peeled and sliced thin
5-6 ripe tomatoes, thinly sliced
1 head red leaf lettuce, washed and separated
1 round of Ballard's Idaho Golden Greek Cheese

Fry bacon slices until they are crisp and set aside. Cut  cheese into 1/4 inch slices. Warm
up a clean, dry skillet over medium heat and add cheese slices in a single layer in pan.
Fry on one side until cheese has browned, then turn cheese slices over and brown on
the other side. Now taste a cooked slice of the cheese. (Get a hold of yourself at this point
and try not to eat the rest of the cheese, so you can finish  this recipe!)  Place slices on a
warm plate, and continue to brown the rest of the cheese. Plate can be kept in a warm
oven to keep the cheese from cooling off.  On a cooked cheese slice, layer pieces of
bacon, avocado slices, tomatoes, and lettuce leaves, Drizzle some of the sauce over the
top, and secure another slice of cheese on top with a toothpick. Serve immediately.  

Sandwich Sauce (recipe below)
Sandwich Sauce
1/2 cup mayonnaise

5-6 fresh basil leaves
3 fresh parsley sprigs
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
Place all Sandwich sauce ingredients in blender or food processor, and process until
ingredients are well combined. Keep sauce in the refrigerator until ready to use.
