Asparagus, mozzarella & bacon sliders
Barbecue season is just around the corner – get in the mood with this quick and easy spin on sliders.
It makes for a straightforward and delicious lunch or easy nibbles on your next picnic or garden party.
Serves: 6 Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes
- 9 British asparagus spears, trimmed
- 2 tsp olive oil
- Juice of ½ lemon
- 6 slices of streaky bacon
- 150g mozzarella, sliced and patted dry

What to do
- Heat the grill to high. Lay the asparagus spears on a large plate, drizzle with oil, a squeeze of lemon juice and season then shake the plate to roll the spears until they are well coated.
- Grill the asparagus and bacon on both sides until golden and cooked. Return the asparagus to the oily plate and roll it in the dressing once more.
- Toast the cut sides of the buns. Cut the asparagus spears in half to fit into the buns. Top one half of each bun with asparagus then a slice of mozzarella. Return to the grill to melt the cheese.
- Cut the bacon to fit the buns then top each slider with a crisp piece of bacon and the top half of the bun.
