B.A.R. Sliders (Bacon Avocado Ranch)

Bacon+Avocado+Ranch+Sliders.jpg

These little sliders were perfect for our New Years Eve at home! I love party type finger-foods just as much as anyone, and I love finding better-for-you options even more. My challenge here was to make a slider that my guys would love, but that I could keep grain, gluten and dairy free. Mission accomplished!
