I simply love the combination of bacon, blue cheese and avo on a sandwich. I add slices of cucumber to add freshness and crunch.

Its all about using the best ingredients you can. Here I used Richard Bosman’s honey bacon which I bought from FFMM. I love the Simonsberg Simonzola, a creamy Italian style blue veined cheese which is a wonderful local cheese if you cant get hold of Gorgonzola. Avo’s are in season, so are perfect to add to salads and sandwiches now and offset the saltiness of the bacon and the cheese. The cucumber adds freshness and crunch.

I also enjoy a  good mature Cheddar with the above combination of flavours, so I made one of each.

This really looks so good. Sandwiches are really good stomach fillers because you can go simple or crazy with the ingredients. There is no limit or specific instructions you need to stick to. Just add in what you love and you are good to go! So, thank you for this recipe! I definitely love it!
